Facebook is Preventing me From Responding to A Private Message

I received an error I don't understand and I can’t send a Private Message. Why won’t Sprout Social let me send my Private Message?

These are not Sprout errors but instead are received directly from Facebook. Facebook is preventing you from sending a Private Message for one of two reasons:

  1. When this error message is returned, “(#368) The action attempted has been deemed abusive or is otherwise disallowed”, Facebook has blocked the content you are attempting to post. This may occur when you send a large number of similar private messages.
  2. Facebook is currently unable to accept your message due to technical difficulties. Please attempt your message again in five minutes.
