Bot, the shortened term of Facebook Messenger Bot, is a new service that allows you to interact with chat bots. Basically, a Messenger Bot is an AI-fueled program that will automatically reply to user queries sent to you through a chat message sent from your company. As seen in the following video, chat bots, as mentioned above, are very much like actual people, except that they are not really people, they are automated machines. The first steps to getting started with your own bot are to sign up for Messenger and create a free account.
Now, your bot should be able to connect to your account through a browser by going to the settings. The "Bot" section is usually located on the top right corner of the chatbox, next to the "Messages" section. If you are using the Facebook version of Messenger Bot, it is generally located at the bottom of your friend's list in the chatbox.
When your bot has connected to your account, it will display its interface in the form of a web console. There are various tools you can use to customize your Bot, such as colors, layouts, images, and text. For now, let's focus on how you can interact with Messenger Chat Bots. First off, since Messenger Bot is an artificially intelligent program, it should be able to understand what you are asking and give appropriate results. The question you are posing should prompt the bot to give some kind of response.
To test Facebook Messenger Bot, you can just go to its in-shop bot page and have it answer questions you ask. The ability to customize your bot should be available for most if not all Messenger apps, as Messenger Bot was developed by two Facebook specialists – Luis Martine Ayala and Kevinthood, who are currently working on competing chat bots for Facebook. You can find a number of "customized" chat bots from third-party developers on Facebook's App Store. These third-party developers offer themes for both the iPhone and iPad, and they also integrate with the Facebook app for Android.
In terms of chatbot technology, you will notice that Messenger Bot uses a technique called "soft listening". Basically, the bot is set up to detect conversations happening in the chat room. Then, it copies these conversations and decodes the meaning of the words. Based on the information decoded, the software suggests a sentence or group of words that a user might want to say. This is not unlike the idea of "brainstorming", wherein ideas are jotted down and the person holding the brainstorming session attempts to come up with a group of answers. However, because of the significant difference in size, this method could take much longer than traditional brainstorming.
Since Messenger Bot uses a custom-made chatbot architecture, it could also boast a better artificial intelligence than its competitors. Indeed, many techies believe that a chatbot built by Facebook's Research team could beat Hootsuite App in terms of conversational ability. Perhaps one reason why Messenger Bot was able to beat the Hootsuite App in terms of artificial intelligence is because of its artificial intelligence, or the way it learns from its past conversations. Other chatbot technologies used by Facebook, such as the Beacon and Social Ads, may also help increase the chatbot's conversational abilities.
The second pro-tip we have for you in Hootsuite Tips for Facebook Bot is to install the "Spanning Method" with Messenger Bot. This method enables you to test Messenger Bot in different regions, in other words, try to test it in different countries. For example, let us say that you want to test Messenger Bot in Germany. Just go to the Spanning Method's website, sign in using your Facebook account, and then start testing. If everything goes well, then the next step you should take is to enter the correct region in Messenger Bot's settings and see how well your bot performs in that region.
And finally, the third tip we have for you in Hootsuite Tips for Facebook Bot is to be a good roommate. This is because as we all know, artificially intelligent chat bots and even automated messaging systems are not good roommates. Chat bots tend to get too friendly, and this will cause communication issues between you and your bot friends. Therefore, if you are planning to join groups with these bots, make sure that your bot has a good personality so that it will not cause problems in the group.
