Building a Messenger Bot can be quite a task because it requires numerous steps. Some of these steps are usually needed, others are optional. The reason why you need to perform some of these steps is to increase the chances of your bot being able to work correctly.
After you have created your bot, you will have to do a few things first. Firstly, you will need to register on Facebook. If you haven't done this yet, you should do this now. This can also be done with an official Facebook account.
Next, you will need to choose a name for your bot. This name will be your bot's profile picture and will be used in various interactions with your bot.
Thirdly, you will have to add your Bot to your existing contacts list. If you have already created a Facebook account, then you should be able to do this. Otherwise, you should create a new contact.
Once you have managed to add your bot to your Facebook account, you will then need to make sure that it appears as a notification in your notifications feed. You will want to make sure that your bot is visible to everyone that has a Facebook account, otherwise it will not work.
The next step is to add your bot to your friends of friends on Facebook. This is probably the most complicated step of all. It might also be the most important because it will determine how your bot will be viewed by your Facebook friends.
Another thing you should do is to invite your Facebook friends to add your bot to their contacts list. This will help spread the word about your bot.
Finally, you will need to notify your friend about your bot. You can either send them a message or can use the regular Facebook Messenger feature to do so. The easiest way to do this is to use the Facebook API.
You can do this by sending a request through the Facebook API. The first line of your message will contain your Bot's ID, which you can find on your Bot's profile page.
If you would like your message to be displayed on the Facebook timeline, then you should send a POST request to the Facebook API. This will cause your message to be displayed in your bot's updates feed.
Finally, you will have to add your bot to your Facebook privacy settings. Most users only check their privacy settings once every week or so, so you should add your bot to this list often so that your bot will always be visible to your friends.
These are just a few basic steps that you should take to make sure that your Facebook Messenger Bot will work properly. Of course, there are more steps, but these are the most common ones.
