Changes made to the Facebook Messenger API for new privacy rules in Europe
Due to new privacy rules in the European Economic Area (EEA), Facebook is deprecating features in several of their Messenger APIs for EEA-based businesses and individuals based in Europe who connect with businesses outside of the EEA.
This means that some functionality in Sprout will change if:
- You’re a business based in the EEA, or
- You receive incoming messages from EEA users.
The deprecations with the Messenger API features impact Facebook Private Messages and Bots in Sprout.
