A bot or chat bot is basically a short messaging program that uses artificial intelligence to open and sustain conversations with internet users. Users just need to type a brief message into the bot’s chat box and the bot will automatically reply to them using relevant responses. Similarly, a Facebook Messenger Bot is a program which lives in Facebook Messenger and chats with millions of Facebook Messenger users per month. In fact, Facebook Messenger is one of the most popular messenger programs, used by Facebook users all over the world. Here are some tips on how to make a messenger bot:
Downloading and installing the latest version of Facebook Messenger Bot: To start with things are relatively simple, a simple chat bot installation requires you to download and install the latest version of Facebook messenger Bot onto your computer first, before proceeding to the second step. Next, open up the bot’s icon on your desktop and launch it. The Bot will take over from here. In the bottom right corner of its window there is a ‘Get Started’ button, click on this, then follow the instructions provided.
Making Conversations: Conversations between friends over messenger bots is one of the most basic tasks of the application. Before starting you will need to have a Facebook account. If you do not have one, create one now. Once you have logged in to your Facebook account, go to Applications and select ‘Bots’ and ‘messenger bots’. There you will find a list of applications which allow you to start chatting live with people you may know or even make new contacts.
Click on the ‘start chatting’ button and fill in the form as you normally would. You will also be asked to choose the Facebook account which the chat bot will use, and which profile pictures you want to use for your augmented reality images (for example, if you are using the Facebook Business page). If you have not yet created your augmented reality images or chosen a Facebook profile picture, skip to the last step where you will be asked to pick one from the photos you’ve picked out earlier. You will then be able to make a selection of whatever you want to have superimposed over someone else’s head in real time. If you have made up your mind, simply click on the ‘get started’ button.
Upload your image and wait for the chat bot to get you started living. If you are logged into your Facebook account, it will present you with a chatbox containing a chat box like this:
This will present you with an overlay of your head on someone else’s body. These types of overlays can be used in a variety of ways, but are primarily intended for advertising and marketing purposes. Because of their simplicity and because messenger bots make it easy for you to make the most out of these chat Bots, they are considered the easiest way to make money through Facebook.
