If you're familiar with chat bots such as the Facebook "chat" bot, then you're familiar with Messenger Bot. This bot was created by Facebook and aims to automate the entire messaging process. The Facebook Messenger Bot was initially developed as a way to allow Facebook users to chat with their friends. It was only a short time before it was being used in other aspects of the Facebook world as well. Today, Messenger Bot is being used for all kinds of tasks.
What are Messenger Bot? These are simple, automated programs that work by helping people with their communication needs. Basically, they are programs that can be installed on your Facebook account and will perform tasks for you while you focus on more important matters. As we've seen, these programs use artificial intelligence (AI) to mimic the actual human interaction process. In short, these programs are able to quickly form a response to whatever is asked and can do so in a very human-like manner.
The first thing you probably noticed about the Facebook Messenger Bot is that it was able to quickly reply to a user's question. Unlike some of the other chat bots that you may have seen in the past, you can now ask Messenger Bots simple questions like, "How's the weather?", without having to write down the exact answer since these are pre-written responses.
The next thing you probably noticed is that the Facebook Messenger Bot was able to connect to a variety of different applications. As you may have guessed, this was primarily done because of the way that software designed to use bots communicate. Most of the chat and group applications are highly coupled, so it was only natural that Facebook would want their Messenger Bot to make use of similar technologies. This has created an amazing synergy between Messenger Bots and various other applications. For example, groups used to be a bit private and still are, but now we live in a world where the need for communication is as strong as ever. Group chat has almost become a necessity for most social networking websites, and Facebook has made it easy to use bots for this purpose.
As mentioned above, one of the primary uses of Messenger Bot is to allow groups of people to exchange information. Hootsuite allows us to group people in many different ways. In order for us to group individuals, we first have to create a profile for each person. Then we can create groups, and we can invite people either by email or directly through a custom message. Messenger Bots can be integrated with Hootsuite accounts, and then we can easily send them a link that they can click on to join our group. This group feature integrates with many other Facebook applications, such as groups and conversations, and then offers a highly efficient way to manage contact lists and keep track of groups.
In addition, Messenger Bot makes it easy for us to manage our online reputation, as well. Hootsuite already allows us to manage our social media pages, and this integration with Messenger Bot will make it even easier for us to do so. With the ability to filter our news feeds, manage our likes and dislikes, and block people we simply don't want to see, we will soon find that this bot has many uses. In fact, in some ways, we may be looking at the Bot as a social media manager in its own right. We may not realize it at first, but we will likely come to appreciate the value of having automated social media management tools in our lives.
The integration of Hootsuite and Facebook Messenger Bot goes far beyond simple messaging apps. The Bot will also integrate with other Facebook applications, allowing you to manage your fan page, search for restaurants, connect with friends on Facebook, and more. Since Messenger Bot includes all these features as well as the ability to manage our feeds and handle our online reputation, we can look to this new bot as more than just an email marketing assistant, but as a productivity tool for our personal and professional lives.
However, this bot is not solely a mail client. Since Facebook and Hootsuite have agreed to work together to create a unified inbox for customers and members, the new bot will also allow us to chat with customers directly through the Facebook messaging system. Through Chat Bots, we will be able to bring face-to-face interaction to businesses that might otherwise be overlooked due to geographical barriers. By interacting directly with our customers, we can get them to engage with our brands, and respond to what we are saying. With these two powerful platforms, we can look forward to a future where we can improve our businesses, increase our revenue, and strengthen our customer relationships.
