Introducing Facebook Messenger bots (also known as Facebook chatbots). According to Hootsuite, a chatbot is defined as a “piece of automated messaging software that uses AI to converse with people”. We know, it sounds a bit daunting (and sort of creepy), but it really is a useful tool.

It allows a customer to simply type a message in (just like they’re messaging a friend) and receive an answer.
