Facebook Messenger Chat Limitations
- Due to security reasons, only one connection is allowed for each Facebook Page to a CTM account.
- You can link multiple Facebook Pages to a single Chat Widget in the CTM account, but each Facebook Page can only be linked to a single Chat Widget. This means you can track data from multiple Facebook Pages within a single CTM Account, but you can’t track data from the same Facebook Page in multiple CTM Accounts / Chat Widgets.
