Facebook Chatbot is an artificial intelligence (AI) program that functions using the natural language of Facebook conversations. Basically, a bot is just a piece of artificially intelligent messaging software that uses AI to actually converse with humans. Unlike most chat Bots, Facebook Messenger Bot is able to "read" and respond to messages even if you are not available on the device it's connected to. In fact, a Facebook Messenger Bot is how you automate that strategy. As of late, Facebook has over 300,000 active Messenger Bots.
So, how do you get started? First, you'll need to get a Facebook account. Although there are a number of free versions, I find Facebook's version to be the most functional. In fact, many argue that Facebook's free version is the one that started it all, the Facebook Beta! However, the Facebook Home Simulator is the best way to get started if you're looking for Facebook Messenger Bot features.
To start, you'll need to open up your Facebook Home Simulator. This should load a "Welcome Message" page. Once you see this, click on the button "Get Started". You'll then be taken to a page where you can choose between a few different kinds of bot software. Once you've chosen which bot you'd like to use, click "Create Account".
Next, click "Bot Settings". Here you'll get a page similar to the Facebook Home Simulator app's main settings. On this page, you'll want to fill out your information, such as your name, birth date, and email address. For example, if you are using ChatFuel for Facebook Chatbot, you'll fill in the values for your gender, name, and age. In addition, you'll have to pick whether or not you want to receive click-through rates for each new friend you add (or click-through rate for a new Facebook friend you friend) and whether or not you'd like to have a custom welcome message.
After all of these things are filled out, you'll need to confirm your application by clicking "Submit". Then, you will be taken back to the Facebook Home Simulator application's main page. If you're using the Facebook Bot for Facebook chat Bots, click on the "Create Account" link. Next, choose a username for your bot and click "Sign in". Finally, you should view your bot's account and choose whether or not you'd like to create a video.
Facebook Messenger Bot has been out for a few months now, but it's quickly gaining more popularity than most of Facebook's other apps. This is large because many people have found it easier to use Bots than they have been with other applications. Bots are often easier for individuals to interact with and can help you make more connections than would otherwise be possible. However, Facebook itself is making more changes to the way you use the chat application. In particular, the latest versions of Facebook Messenger Bot now give Facebook customers two new options when they chat:
The first option and the one that will be most interesting to many Facebook users is called " queues". When you chat with a Facebook user, their default action is to click on a conversation icon. When a conversation goes underway, the first bot you are assigned to is prompted to fill out a message and then wait for you to join it. If you don't want to join that conversation, you can hold "chattimer" to cause the bot to automatically wait until you're ready to join and chat with the other person.
This second option is a remarkable achievement for Facebook Messenger Bot developers. There is no way to know how long Facebook's bot service has been available to its nearly one hundred million active users. Only Facebook can tell us, but judging from the numbers, it's safe to say that at least some of those users have been waiting for this feature to become available. For those who are curious about what chat bots are capable of, especially since it means that entire communities can now be connected by Facebook Live. But, most importantly, bots represent Facebook's newest and most exciting approach to improving customer service.
