2015 - Facebook wants to replace business2customer email by its Messenger to challenge BBM
Facebook is aiming to use its Messenger to reinvent communication between customers and businesses. The idea is that people hate touch-tone phone tree customer service calls. Endless email threads are annoying too. People would rather just text asynchronously in a single chat thread. To allow that Facebook is working with an initial set of partners including Everlane and Zulily to change how people contact them. For example, if you buy something through Everlane, but want to modify, track, or return your order, you’ll be able to contact the business through Messenger. And rather than getting individual emails about order confirmation and your order shipping, you’ll be able to opt to get those messages in Messenger. Customer support will be permitted over Messenger thanks to an integration with ZenDesk. Businesses that already use live chat systems for customer support will be able to run that communication over Messenger.
