Interact with Facebook users through the RUM Work channel using a Facebook Page.
Being among the top social media platforms with over 2.93 billion active users, Facebook sends a strong signal to businesses to have a presence there. And with that, business owners must respond to user queries promptly.
However, due to managing queries at a large scale and on other platforms, it's possible they can miss them. Therefore, RUM Work's Facebook Channel provides a simplified way to communicate with customers over Facebook Messenger without losing track of send and received messages.
To create a RUM Work Facebook Channel, you'd need:
- A genuine Facebook account.
- And a Facebook Page to connect it with the RUM Work Facebook Channel.
After creating the page and connecting it with RUM Work, you can answer queries that users send from Facebook.
Ensure the Facebook account is set to Admin for the page you want to connect with RUM Work. Follow this guide to learn how to manage roles for a Facebook page.
