Creating, managing and launching your Facebook Chatbot has never been easier.

Since our beta launch during Lisbon’s websummit our aim has been to listen closely to feedback and improving our product. We believe it is now time to share what we’ve been up to.

Over these past few months we have been focusing on finding the best way to offer as many features as we can whilst keeping it as easy to understand as possible for non-tech people to build Facebook Chatbots for their business.
