Generally speaking, a "chatbot" (or simply "bot") is a piece of computer software that uses AI (Artificial Intelligent) to emulate human conversation. On Facebook, chatbots can answer questions, perform different tasks, and learn from their conversations. And thanks to deep learning, they are also a little like a virtual intelligent digital assistant!
As with any bot, you should never attempt to use Messenger Bot or any similar application to make purchases or send emails or IM messages. There are many ways to create a bot but it is best to use a developer's tools when creating one. You can easily do this by going to the developer portal on Facebook and clicking the "Add a Bot" option in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Next, choose "Create a Bot," select the language and/or platform you wish to use for the box, and click "Create!"
When you are done creating a chatbot, you can then add it to your Facebook profile and begin interacting with it. To do this, open up your Messenger chatroom and start creating a bot using any of the pre-made Facebook chatbot templates. Once your boat is ready, go to your "Bot" section on your profile and click on it. When prompted, give your bot a name, select a gender (female or male), select the language it will be operating in (English or French), and select your preferences for customization. Then click "OK!"
You will then need to wait for a few hours to a day for your bot to create a profile and populate chat with new messages and replies. Your bot will then begin talking to other users in your Messenger chatroom!
Another benefit of using a chatbot is that you can have a lot of fun chatting with it. In fact, if you are just starting out, the idea may seem a little silly. That is because a chatbot can act just as if you are talking to a friend and even share things like pictures and videos with you! If you are not that interested in building your own chatbot, you can always hire a virtual assistant to do this for you! This way you won't need to waste time creating the bot yourself and you can focus your efforts elsewhere.
In fact, the best way to hire a virtual assistant to make your chatbot is through the Facebook website. Here, you can browse through many different virtual assistants' portfolios and hire the one that you find most suited for your needs.
If your chatbot is only one sentence or two long, you can easily build it by typing it into your browser's address bar by going to the developer's site and clicking on the "add a bot" button at the bottom of the page. Or, you can take advantage of the advanced Facebook Messenger Bot Builder.
Once you've added the bot to your Messenger profile, it will automatically be created for you, giving you a free account to start interacting with it. From here, you can customize your bot and make it do whatever you want it to do. You can even use your computer to make money or send emails.
There are a number of websites that you can visit to learn more about building your own Facebook chatbot. You can find tutorials, videos, and even sample chat sessions that you can watch to learn how to use the chatbot. You can also find online forums where users are sharing their experiences with their chatbots.
Of course, when building your own chatbot, you can choose which features you would like to add to your Messenger Bots such as the ability to record videos or images or to respond to messages by sending them to a group or a specific person. You may also decide if you would like to display pictures or videos from your desktop or if you have one installed.
Once you have all of your chatbot's features installed, you'll find that it will work extremely well and you'll enjoy the benefits of having a virtual assistant helping you out!
