So we now have a Facebook Messenger bot. She’s been live 2 weeks now actually so if you’ve tried to contact us via our FB page, chances are you communicated with a bot.
First things first, before we introduce her – while she can respond to some of your random questions, she’s not a let’s-talk-about-anything bot. Her primary purpose is to help you read Techzim. So she’ll respond very well to chats like “Latest stories”, “Show me the articles”, “What’s the latest”, “news”, “misoro yadzo zvakare” and so forth.
Anything outside these obvious type requests will be met with a “sorry, let me get a human!” response. With that out of the way, go ahead, say hello to our newest team member here!
We think she’s useful for those of you who are restricted to Facebook by app specific internet bundles. Or for anyone in those rare cases when when our website is down coz she can still serve you the articles. And ofcourse for those of you that live talking to machines.
Let us know if this is useful and what we can do to improve the experience.
If you’re a blogger and want to have this for your site; it’s easy to create, just go to chatfuel and you’ll be up and running within a short time.
