What is a Facebook Messenger Bot?

A Facebook Messenger Bot is a tool that makes use of Facebook Messenger as well as the web. The basic idea behind a bot is to reply to messages that you send to your Messenger.

This requires you to first create your own Bot, then you install it on your Messenger account, and lastly you have to instruct it on how to reply to messages. You can also add bots on any Facebook page which allows you to receive updates from different networks.

Each time you install a Bot, you are given an option to configure it to either send a message or to send a URL to the messenger. It is important to realize that bots may be configured to send different types of messages to different people.

For example, one type of a Bot would send out messages to a group. This kind of Bot can be configured to send messages to anyone who has been tagged with the word "group" in their profile.

Other Bot types are configured to tell you when a friend "likes" your profile. Such a Bot can tell you if someone likes your status and allow you to choose to reply to them with a message or with a link to a certain Facebook page.

There are many other types of Bots that can be programmed to send messages for you. Some are meant to be sent updates to your Facebook page while others are meant to check your newsfeed to get new updates for you.

It is important to note that Messenger Bot cannot be automatically installed onto your Facebook profile. You have to configure each Bot individually.

Using bots for Facebook Messenger is more complex than most users understand. A Bot can be as simple as a basic button that tells you "Check my status", or it can be a full-fledged program that can do things like send you automated emails.

With these kinds of Bots, you can be sure that they will never cause any harm to your Facebook profile. For most people, though, there are bots that function just as most Bot programs do.

The first thing you should know about Bots is that they are designed to get information. It will pull up a page that you can log into that allows you to find out how long your friend has been tagged, the last updates they have made, and whether or not they are a member of groups on Facebook.

You can set your Bot to inform you about new groups that you may want to join. If you want to monitor what your friends are up to, it can even tell you.

Chatbots on Facebook can help you gain more information by accessing their accounts, but a Bot's main goal is to provide you with useful information. That's why it is important to read the source code, before you install your Bot.
