What about Meta's 24 hour follow-up rule?

Marketing on Facebook Messenger has traditionally is difficult because of the "24 hour follow-up" rule. Which means a Facebook Page, or business, can only message a Facebook user if the user has interacted with them in the prior 24 hours.

The purpose is to protect against spam and preserve Facebook's user experience. Unfortunately, this limited businesses to mainly responding to questions like how chatbots work. The 24 hour follow-up rule is still in effect.

However, to empower businesses with Facebook Messenger, Meta has built new subscription capabilities, which is what 1send is built on. Subscribers must first opt-in to messages from the business. Afterwards, the business can message the user even outside the 24 hour window.

Will 1send messages be considered spam?

Spam is a key concern for Meta and 1send. The following precautions are taken to prevent spam:

  • Clear consent is required for subscription

  • Brands are restricted to sending each subscriber only 1 message every 24 hours

  • There is an easy way to unsubscribe.

Does 1send violate Meta's policies?

No. 1send is built on Meta's APIs and is compliant.
