Q.6 Will we be able to initiate an outgoing message to an unknown number (subscriber ID) via Facebook?
Ans:- No. You can only initiate an outgoing message via Facebook in response to a user-initiated message to your business page.
Q.7 What should I do when the 24-hour session messaging window is closed before responding to a user-initiated message?
Ans:- You won’t be able to send any messages to an unknown recipient once a 24-hour session messaging window is closed. So we recommend you to map them with objects by creating records on receiving messages from unknown recipients. Once a record is created and you already have an explicit Messenger opt-in, the system will allow you to send messages to these recipients using templates mapped with ‘Message Tag’ outside of the 24-hour messaging window. OR You can send an auto-reply informing the recipient about business hours and either ask him to provide you an explicit Messenger opt-in or send another message during your business hours on Messenger.
Q.8 As a business admin, how do I demarcate between Facebook session messages and messages sent using Facebook message tags in SMS-history?
Ans:- You will be able to demarcate between Facebook session messages and messages sent using Facebook message tags based upon the ‘Channel Template Type’ field value in SMS-history object. You will see the ‘Channel Template Type’ field value as ‘Message Tag’ for messages that the system sends on Facebook as templates mapped with Message Tag.
