If you know any Digital Marketing enthusiasts, you may have heard a lot of talk about Messenger Bots lately. It seems like their are social media experts everywhere saying Messenger Bots are going to be an integral part of the future of social media. If you don't run in digital marketing circles, let us provide some context. For a long time, it seemed like Messenger was one of the most overlooked parts of Facebook, especially in America, where phone plans allow for people to have unlimited texting. As Facebook has developed Messenger as a standalone platform, however, it's user base has continued to grow and grow. Instead of becoming just an SMS replacement, Facebook has continued to add features to Messenger that make it fun (games, Messenger Day), easy to use (saved replies, gif functionality, etc), and integrated for businesses (bots, extensions, etc).
