If you have been using Messenger in your Facebook News Feed, you may have seen the mysterious Facebook Chatbot pops up all the time. For those who haven't, the Messenger Bot is a way for Facebook to teach its users new tricks and to get them talking about it.
Using the Messenger Bot is simple. It's a type of virtual assistant that's set up to collect information from Facebook users on a regular basis.
They then "collect" the information and store it for you. The Messenger Bot will keep coming back to you over again so that you know what it can do. They will then send you news updates about changes to Facebook, give you information about how to make money on Facebook, and post tips.
Facebook Chatbot also does a lot of repetitive tasks. When the Messenger Bot updates your wall with a new post, they also update the wall of other people who also like your wall and share the post with their friends.
You won't be able to see the posts, but they will show up on your friends' walls. Then, you can simply click on the posts and be taken to a page where you can either like the post or simply comment on it.
Facebook sometimes installs adware onto your computer. They do this because they want to monitor what you are doing on Facebook. They collect information from the sites you visit to see how often you visit certain sites, which products you use, and how much money you spend.
After setting up the Messenger Bot, Facebook asks you to allow it to send you information to some third party companies who help improve Facebook. The Messenger Bot will go into this third party site to gather all the information you just gave it.
With Facebook's system, the third party company keeps track of how much time you spend on Facebook. They also help to sell advertisements. They don't have access to any of your personal information, but the Messenger Bot's third party partners do.
When you're logged into Facebook, the Messenger Bot sends your information to these third parties. At the same time, Facebook needs to send this information to advertisers so that they can promote their websites and services.
Because the third party companies that the Messenger Bot talks to can potentially have access to your private information, you should not give them your email address. Instead, you should only give your details to them if you want to purchase an item, or if you want to opt in to something.
It's possible that Facebook will add a way to stop the Messenger Bot from sending your information to these third parties, but it may take some time. The Messenger Bot is complicated and doesn't allow many people to use it at once.
If you're tired of seeing ads and want a way to improve Facebook without having to buy a membership, then the Messenger Bot may be the answer. It's not a scam, but it's not much of a privacy option either.
