What is Messenger Profile Link?
Most messaging platforms offer a means for you to search for someone to message them.

On Facebook Messenger, there is a URL; when someone has it, they can tap on it to open a chat window on Messenger and connect with you.
The Messenger profile link starts with m.me/<username>/.
Messenger automatically generates the profile link when creating your Messenger account but allows users room to customize it. So, it’s more practical to edit the profile link to mention your business if you have a business.
A Messenger profile link has numerous benefits.
You can embed the Messenger profile link in a call-to-action or your “Contact Us” page when you have a blog or an online business. Customers can tap on the link and get in touch with your business or support team.
