Facebook has continually been working to improve how businesses carry out customer service on the platform.
With products like Facebook work which are set to be launched soon, the company has begun to make the platform more appealing to business merchants all over the world.
For instance, in June of 2015, they rolled out the “ Very Responsive to Messages “ badge . The badge is meant to show people which pages respond quickly and consistently to private messages.
It appears directly below your Page’s cover photo, and is based on average response times generated every 7 days.
