⚠️ On September 27, 2022, Octane AI will end support for (i.e. deprecate) our Facebook Messenger and Facebook Ads features so we can focus on our zero-party data and artificial intelligence features.

With the Comment Capture feature you can respond to Facebook comments on your Facebook posts with an automated message from your bot. If you'd like to check out a video tutorial, you can do that here.

Once the user replies to the bot, they automatically become a bot subscriber. You can add Facebook Comment tracking for all posts or specific posts.

This is a great way to encourage opt-ins for your bot. You can find the Comment capture section in Facebook Messenger:

How does the Global option work?
If you want to have a global message added to all your Facebook posts, that will send the first time any customer comments on a post. You can turn on the Global option and comment capture feature will be added to all your Facebook posts.

The comment will be sent once per user, so if someone comment on multiple posts on your Facebook page, they will still receive only one reply on their first comment.

What if I want to use it for just a single Facebook post?

Press the New Post button and add a Facebook post you wish to publish here:

Then, publish by clicking on the Post to facebook button:

Can I add it also for a specific existing Facebook post?

Yes, if you wish to create campaign for a specific existing post click on Existing post, and add the URL or post ID of the Facebook post you wish to use in campaign

You can even use comment capture with Facebook ads using this method! Simply enter the post ID of the ad you'd like comment capture to work with.

Here's instructions on how you can locate a post's ID. 

TIP: You can even use the comment capture feature with Facebook Live posts. 

What is the First reply?

The first reply is a message that will be sent to the commenter through Messenger right after they post a comment.

There is one first reply set by default. You can edit it and add multiple replies that will be sent to followers randomly.

You can then set up a quick reply that connects elsewhere within the bot or prompts a new bot responses when clicked.

Advanced settings:

You can set up the feature to reply only if specific keywords are used in a comment:

You can also choose not to activate the feature if certain keywords are used in the comment, so by adding those keywords in the feed reply won't be triggered when those words are in the comment.

This is an amazing feature for growing your bot!
