What Messenger connections are
A Messenger connection is someone who you've communicated with on the Messenger app, on messenger.com or messages on Facebook from your computer.
Some types of communication include:
When you reply to a message request from someone, they become a Messenger connection. Learn how to check your message requests or how to block messages and message requests on Messenger.
Messages from Facebook friends go straight to your Chat list or inbox on Messenger. Messenger connections can:
- Chat with you on Messenger or Facebook messages.
- Voice call or video call you on Messenger.
- See your story on Facebook, if you allow them in your story settings.
