The technology behind Facebook Chatbot applications is nothing new, in fact it is been around since Facebook opened up their platform. The question is, will it ever be available for other platforms? Before I answer that question let me tell you what a Facebook Messenger Bot is exactly.
It is an application on Facebook Messenger. It is an application that is very easy to use and easy to create as well. The application is made to do one thing only and that is to collect data from its users. The data is analyzed by the technology and the bots can be created to perform functions like sending newsletters, chatting and monitoring the chat logs.
It is actually possible to get an application for your Facebook Messenger account from the website. The website itself is very easy to use and the functionality is intuitive. It doesn't take long to get familiar with how the service works. The best part is that you can download an application to your Facebook account and it will be immediately available to use.
You can also use the Facebook API to create the bot. The API is used to integrate with Facebook websites so you can build applications without much work on your part. Once you create your bot with the API you can customize it to your needs.
In this case Facebook bots have been considered to be the next step up after Facebook applications. With Facebook Messenger Bot you can easily send emails, and chat with your friends.
Bots will also be able to integrate with third party services. All the applications are designed to integrate with Facebook's messenger app, which is already built into most mobile phones. Bots can therefore be integrated with Facebook's official messaging service, such as Facebook.com.
Another benefit of using bots is that they can be controlled by a human user. If you have a good understanding of the Facebook platform and understand how to create bots, you can also control bots with your Facebook account. This would allow you to allow certain features to the bot and delete specific commands. It would also mean that the bot won't be able to send spam.
Apart, from that Facebook allows you to create and send URL shorteners. You will be able to share links with other people who can open them using the shortened link.
If you are still not convinced about the fact that bots are here to stay, here is another reason. Bots are often very easy to set up. You just need to install a little Python script on your PC or Mac and then you can get started with creating bots.
Since you don't have to do anything to the bots, you can start off experimenting with the different bots that are out there. Bots that are easy to use, functional and provide value to the users are all very important. Bots should also be free of viruses and spyware.
Facebook Messenger Bot integration means that you can start with a small application that will gather some information for you and it won't cost you anything. Later on, if you want to expand and add more functionality to your application, you can easily do that.
Today, bots are definitely here to stay. Bots are a step up from Facebook applications and the integration between Facebook and bots is now easier than ever before.
