Why do tickets created through Facebook show the requester as Facebook Messenger Users instead of their name?
Tickets with users named Facebook Messenger Users appear when your customers disable the option to interact with Apps and websites within their Facebook settings. Disabling this setting prevents their personal data, such as their name, from being shared. For more information, see this article from the Facebook help center: Where can I see the apps and games I've added to Facebook?
When these Facebook users create a post on your linked Facebook page, this post won't be available to Zendesk through the Facebook API. Zendesk won't covert these posts to tickets.
Agent replies on the ticket won't go through to the requester. You will see the error message below on Zendesk.
Message failed: We were unable to add the response to this Facebook ticket. Please check the Ticket events view for more information.
As a workaround, have your agents reply to your customers directly through Facebook.
