Get a Messenger Code that can be scanned

Facebook recently introduced ‘Messenger Codes’ that allow you to easily share your ‘Messenger’ URL with others so that when they scan it (like a QR code) with their phone they will be able to message you directly.  The image could be used as your ‘profile pic’, put on your business card or Website, and emailed.

Here is how you do it…

  • Open the ‘Messenger’ app on your phone.
  • Look in the bottom right corner for ‘Me’ and click on it.
  • In the middle, you’ll see your ‘Username’ which is actually the URL for your ‘Messenger’ – m.me/____ (your Facebook name will appear after ‘m.me/’.
  • ABOVE THAT…Your profile picture should have a blue ‘wreath’ around it that is your ‘Messenger Code’
    • Click on your profile picture in the center to see three things –
      1. ‘My Code’ – your wreath/’Messenger Code’ profile pic
      2. ‘Scan Code’ – click that tab to ‘Scan (OTHERS’) Code’
      3. ‘Share’ button (arrow pointing up) – provides lots of ways to save, copy or share your code

Voila! That’s it!
