An anomaly.

During my recent expert interview, I asked the biggest names in blogging, marketing, and social media to name their favorite social media app.

One blogger, Minuca Elena, named Facebook Messenger.

Guest author Ashni Sharma is here to explain what Facebook Messenger is and how it can help bloggers.

During the expert interview, Minuca Elena explained why she prefers Facebook Messenger to all other social media apps:

“My favorite social media app is Messenger. I use Messenger all the time, more often than Facebook. Through messenger, I keep in touch with friends, clients, and other internet marketers. It’s an excellent way of building a relationship because it’s a real-time conversation (not like an email that feels like sending digital letters). On messenger, you can communicate in a more familiar, less formal way.”

Recently, people have become concerned with bots infiltrating communication on social media sites.

When you use the Facebook Messenger app, you are assured of a personal connection.

Want to know the best part? You don’t even need to have a Facebook account to use the FB Messenger app.

Guest author Ashni Sharma is here to tell you why you need to use Facebook Messenger to increase the success of your blog or business.

    By sending messages on FB messenger, is this not considered spamming? As the person has not opted-in to receive these type of messages, especially with the new GDPR compliance.

    I use FB messenger, but it interrupts my ability to get work done! I have been starting to mute conversations just so I can get work done! Feel guilty doing that, but some people can be so demanding for instant replies.
