Facebook Messenger has a variety of platform policies which affect when and how a business can communicate with a platform user. This section reviews the primary policies that a business should be concerned with.
For a complete list of Facebook Messenger Policy & Usage Guidelines, please see the Facebook Platform Policy
Businesses using Facebook Messenger have up to 24 hours to respond to a message sent by a person in Messenger when using standard messaging.
A bot may also send one additional message after the 24-hour time limit has expired.
This is commonly referred to as the ’24 + 1 policy’.
Note: Starting January 15, 2020, the Facebook policy 24+1 will no longer be available. The new Platform Policy for all messaging will be the following:
Businesses will have up to 24 hours to respond to a user. Messages sent within the 24-hour window may contain promotional content. Users have the option to block or mute a conversation with a business at any time.
Subscription messages are non-promotional messages sent outside the 24-hour standard messaging window for use cases that may require recurring non-promotional updates.
A Page must apply for and be approved to send subscription messages. Once the Page is approved, any app subscribed to the Page may send subscription messages on the Page’s behalf using the Send API’s NON_PROMOTIONAL_SUBSCRIPTION message tag. All subscription messages must abide by the Messenger Platform’s subscription messaging policy.
