When Facebook bought the application, they did not get a bunch of Twitter bots that talking at them. They instead purchased a chatbot that was going to be used for Facebook's Messenger Chatbots. As you may have guessed, this chatbot did not turn out to be anything close to what they originally thought. For me personally, I felt that the implementation was a bit rushed and it was a pretty bad implementation.
The first problem that I found was that Facebook chatbot was set up for people to type in "hello" as a way to initiate a conversation. I find this very annoying because I know that a chatbot is supposed to help me get through an easier time because of how I speak to my friends. I am sure that many people use this chatbot just to see if the bot can actually help them with something so I was a little bit disappointed.
The second problem I found was that the bot did not appear to be as simple as it sounded. There were times when it would not take enough information from my side in order to carry on a conversation. For example, when I asked it to tell me which stickers my friend liked, it gave me incorrect results, which made me curious. So, I sent another message to get a different result but that didn't work either.
The third problem I found was that the bot was quite slow. I would receive messages that took several seconds to show up on my screen. Not only that, but the conversation between my bot and myself was also sometimes quite awkward and short-lived.
Then, I started noticing that the Facebook Messenger Chatbot did not respond to all the questions I had. In one instance, the bot actually blocked me from asking my question. Then, I asked my bot to show me the most recent movie and the bot started to tell me that it had "recently added the topic". As you can imagine, I was not happy about this and did not feel like doing the movie search.
Now, let's talk about marketing. While I was using the bot, I noticed that the bot was promoting something called The Club. I was quite confused because this was not something that I ever heard of before. So, the bot got me curious and wanted to know more.
I did not buy the chatbot because I wanted to find out what The Club is. I think the company makes a lot of sense though because they are selling a product to increase your conversion rate. My bot was not making the return that I was expecting to so I decided to send it off for some help. After I got it back, I was quite surprised by the results that I got.
The Messenger Chatbot that I received turned out to be a very good experience. First, I was able to enjoy all the features of the bot and was not bothered by any bugs. Second, the bot is very simple to use and even has a great UI, which is what I wanted.
I did not even have to pay for the Messenger Chatbot because it was completely free. So, this was also very nice because I don't have to worry about wasting money on things that I don't want to spend money on.
There are a few issues that I saw with Facebook Messenger Bot. One thing that I am very disappointed about is that the bot wouldn't always open my chat window as a notification. In addition, I didn't like that the boy seemed to be very slow and it took a lot of time to respond to my messages.
Overall, this Messenger Bot was a lot of fun to use. As you can see, it's free but it can be upgraded to "The Premier," which is a paid upgrade.
