How to integrate your Bot to Facebook Messenger
Having a chatbot can drastically improve your business and boost your social media marketing reach, especially if you engage with your customers on a platform with billions of people such as Facebook.
Our Facebook Messenger integration allows you to deploy bots powered by the Hu:toma API directly on a Facebook Page with just a few clicks and no coding needed. In order to set up the Facebook integration for your bot, you'll need:
- A Facebook account
- A Facebook Page
Once deployed, your customers will be able to talk to your Hu:toma bot directly from your Facebook Page. The integration requires no hosting or coding but let's go over an example.
- Create A Facebook Page
If you already have a Facebook page, you can go directly to Step 2. If not go ahead and create a Facebook page. Our sample page is called "MyHutomaTest"
- Create Your Bot
At this point, you should have a good understanding of how to build a bot with the Hu:toma Botstudio. If you need to go over the basics again, jump back to the creating a bot section or watch our video tutorial. Once the bot is created, you are ready to connect it with your Facebook Page.
- Integrate your Bot with your Facebook Page
You are now ready to integrate your bot with your Facebook Page. To do that, click the "Integration" menu option. You should see a screen that looks like the following:
Go ahead and click the "Connect To Facebook" button. This will fetch a list of pages that you could connect to your bot.
Now click on one of the pages listed and that's it!
