When Facebook launched their new social networking site, it was with the intention of providing users with easier ways to communicate with one another. At the very start, the idea was to provide an easy way to communicate through instant messages or text messages, while also making the process easier for the people who wanted to communicate. So Facebook Chatbot was developed. Basically, a messenger bot is basically a piece of automatic messaging software that uses AI to converse naturally with humans. As of today, there are tons of chat bots available on the market, each one doing something a little different.
To use Messenger chatbot on Facebook, you need to download the bot onto your computer. Once you have it installed, you can then start interacting with friends and family who have an account on the social networking site. Most chat bots are programmed to know simple questions, give straightforward answers, and perform basic actions like sending messages and posting status updates. A Facebook Messenger Bot is pretty much how you scale this strategy to the wider platform.
However, in order for Facebook Messenger Bot to be more effective, it needs to have more options open to it, including the ability to do more than one thing at once. In other words, if you want to save time when communicating with potential customers, it's best to limit interactions only to those that are absolutely necessary. This gives you more room to focus on other potential customers as well.
Since Messenger Bot limits its functionality to text and voice conversations, you may think that Facebook Messenger Bot is limited to delivering basic functions only. Not so, because a new version of Messenger Bot is now available to help with email marketing. It has the ability to analyze the content of your emails and suggest appropriate responses. This makes it useful not only for marketing but also for tracking down spammers or responding to requests for assistance. And if you don't mind a bit of a learning curve, you can easily program this bot to perform automated email marketing as well.
However, one thing you need to make sure of is that Facebook Messenger Bot works with Facebook's official Hootsuite inbox using the handoff protocol. The Handoff Protocol is Facebook's own integration of Skype, Yahoo Messenger, and other web-based chat applications. Unlike with other bot platforms, however, Facebook Messenger Bot doesn't integrate with any existing chat bot applications. Rather, it requires you to sign up for a separate application on Facebook called the "Bots" section. This application will act as a bridge between Facebook Messenger Bot and the various Facebook Chatbot and social media profiles you have signed up for. Once you're all set and ready to go, you can simply install the bot and let it begin to work for you.
To be able to use the Facebook Messenger Bot, you'll need to have an account in Facebook's Applications Marketplace. You can open the Marketplace by navigating to Facebook > Applications > Marketplace and clicking the "Create" button. If you have a Facebook phone which almost every Facebook user does, you will need to download the Facebook Messenger Bot from Facebook's website and then import it into Facebook. If you have an iPhone, you can use the iTunes app to import the Facebook Messenger Bot into your phone. Once you have the Facebook Messenger Bot imported into Facebook, you will be able to access it through the Bot's interface by tapping on the "Apps" icon found at the bottom right corner of the main profile screen.
Now, one important thing you need to know about the Bots: they work by using Facebook's in-built algorithm for determining who to deliver messages to and who not to. Basically, the idea is to provide relevant content to Facebook's community while excluding spammers, responding to questions, deleting spam, and performing the handoff process. On a broader note, this also means that Facebook's other applications, such as the new Hootsuite and Twitter Cards Bot, are not as effective and will only work as intended if used with Facebook's existing applications. However, using these two apps, you can greatly increase the effectiveness of Facebook's in-built messaging bots.
Basically, Facebook Messenger Bots is very similar to the regular Facebook chat bots we see on the site. However, what makes them so special is the fact that they are able to combine both chatting and sending messages to various people via the internet. This new feature has received a lot of criticism from marketers, but it has also been heralded as one of the best ways to advertise on Facebook. The Bots can be used for anything from starting conversations on topics of interest or simply adding information to already established conversations. Because of its ease of use and powerful abilities, it is expected that more companies will include chatbot technology into their marketing arsenal in the near future.
