Updates on new features and functionality in Snaps.

March 2020

-Private Replies: Private Replies allow brands to engage customers who are commenting publicly on their Facebook page by sending them a private message in Messenger. Snaps customers can now use the same NLP and rules support to identify public comments and send personalized private messages. In the Snaps Compose tool, you will now find platform support for both customer care and marketing use cases. Our customer success managers and conversational designers are here to help you develop flows to acquire new users, drive additional sales and proactively address care issues.

-Sponsored Messages: Snaps now supports creating and analyzing sponsored messages. Sponsored messages allow you to reach users who don’t match a supported message tag, haven’t opted in via a one time notification token, and haven’t chatted with your bot in the last 24 hours. Sponsored messages behave more like ads than traditional reengagements and users are reached via an auction model.

-Messenger Tag Updates: As of March 4th, Facebook Messenger has rolled out an updated list of supported messaging tags, along with a one time notification feature (currently in beta) that help brands engage with customers outside of the 24 hour window. For all of our brands with experiences running on Messenger, you’ll find an updated tag UI for all of your reengagements that will help you understand and manage the new tags going forward.
