Blocking Facebook Messenger

    "all the traffic on my wifi goes through OpenDNS"

    This is not possible.  You can only send your DNS traffic to OpenDNS, not any other traffic.

    "didn't find anything that could be potentially related to facebook."

    Then your issue may not have to do with OpenDNS at all.  Else post your OpenDNS domain stats here, so that we can have a look.

    "I added to always allow in OpenDNS configs - hopefully that will do."

    If your issues are related to your OpenDNS settings, then this will not be enough.  Facebook use so many domains, also different from  See here, even before logging in:

    "Otherwise I'll do an additional research to identify precisely the domain that FB messenger uses."

    This sounds like a plan.
