If you’d like to contact Facebook Support live chat but do not see the options above, it may not be available in your country, or your Facebook Business account may not be eligible.
Aside from the Facebook Support chat feature, there is also a team of Facebook Support experts called Meta Pro Team, created to support small businesses with marketing consultations, but is also only limited to certain Facebook Business accounts.
Meta Pro Team has an official Facebook Page. You can drop them a message through Facebook Messenger, but you will only receive automated replies if the Facebook Support chat is not available to you.
Meta initially stated that the Facebook Support chat service is only available to English users in the US, and will be rolled out to more countries later. However, many are still unable to see this Facebook Support chat feature up till now. If that’s the case for you, you can follow the instructions for other types of Facebook Support to get help.
