If you’re familiar with Facebook, then you already know all about Chat Bots. They are a new feature that allows you to chat online with other users based on what you are both chatting about. These Bots are easy to program and customize, and they can even out your chat experience across multiple different platforms. This was something that Facebook made easy for because they make it easy for us to share conversations with other people. Now, they want to give the same functionality to their users on their Messenger Bot platform. That is where Chat Bots comes in.
If you use Facebook Messenger as part of your online strategy, then you likely already know about the Bot feature. It is like having an internal chat bot that speaks only to you. It will automatically add you to conversations that you are part of, and it will suggest conversations for you to join based on things that you both discussed. These Bots are very useful because they are extremely fast and efficient. You won’t have to go through all of the trouble of getting a new person to chat with you, and you won’t miss out on any of the conversations that are going on around you.
In the past, chat bots on Facebook were limited to certain types of conversations. Say, for example, if you were talking about gardening. You might be able to chat with other gardeners or other people who might be interested in this topic. However, no one would be able to actually talk to you, and you wouldn’t be able to respond to any of their comments. You might also have a much smaller chat bot than you might like.
These chat bots on Messenger can help you expand your horizons and meet new friends. But, they aren’t perfect. They still need a little help from you in order to become more effective. You don’t need to program anything complicated, but there are some things you can do to make the experience more interesting. The first thing you can do is program a bot that will play random conversations for you.
It’s similar to having a live personal assistant at your beck and call. All you have to do is program the bot with your message and it’ll start performing a little bit of your work for you. This can be helpful if you want to get specific answers to certain questions or if you want to find out specific information that you might not be able to find just by searching on Google. If you just want to have conversations without any agenda, this can be a great option for you as well. Just make sure that you don’t program any bots that chat while you’re on Messenger.
Another chat bot uses Facebook’s wall to create an animated profile for you. You’ll notice that as soon as you click the “Like” button or as soon as you click on the small red icon that appears in the corner of your bot’s status area. Bots on Messenger use your wall as a means of getting friends to notice you. However, they won’t do any of the actual talking for you.
The last type of chat bot that we’re going to talk about is the one that draws itself. This bot uses a kind of webcam to draw people into itself. You’ll notice that it has a little window where you can interact with it. However, it will also draw people into itself via the webcam and text messages. As you can probably tell, this type of bot is more of a novelty than anything else and doesn’t really help you with anything.
Hopefully this article has given you some ideas of what types of chat bots are available on Messenger. If you haven’t tried any of these chat bots before, I encourage you to do so. They can provide you with a lot of fun if used properly. You never know when you’ll meet someone who is truly perfect for you.
