What Does Bump Mean On Facebook:

It means increasing the engagement on the post so that it can be seen by many other Facebook users on their newsfeeds. When you see BUMP in the comments of the post, it signifies that the engagement of the post needs to go up more. 

As more people comment on BUMP, it increases the chances to appear on the other’s feeds too. Facebook only prioritizes posts with higher engagement. When you comment BUMP, the algorithm thinks it is an important post and gets it circulated more. 

Therefore, if you think that any post is important then you can comment BUMP on the post to attract more eyes to the post. 

Usually, informative posts, some news, or any new fact that needs to go viral, require more engagement. Therefore, people comment BUMP on these posts as they think it’s useful and needs to get spread among others too. 

By bumping the post, you’re ensuring that more people can see it. 

Why Can’t I Bump into Messenger?

Normally the text messages that you’ve sent on personal chats on Messenger can be bumped by you. When you bump a text message on Messenger chat, the message gets resend to the user without you typing and resending it. 

However, in some cases, you may find that you’re unable to bump a message on Messenger chat. This happens when the message you’re trying to bump is locational sharing or about missed call notifications. When you’re trying to bump a previously shared location message, it won’t bump or get resend, but you’ll need to share your location once again with the user by resending it. Missed call notifications that appear on the chat screen are technically not messages but alerts therefore, they cannot be bumped. 

If you’re trying to bump a normal text message and are unable to do so, it might be because of a glitch in the app. You can easily fix it yourself by restarting the application after closing it. If it doesn’t get fixed, you can also try to clear the cache data of Messenger and reinstall the app to fix it. 

What Does It Mean When Someone Says Bump on Post?

Users usually comment Bump on those posts that need to have a higher engagement rate so that they can reach more people. It’s done to make people understand that the posts need their attention.
