Overview

The Facebook tab allows you to connect your bot to Facebook and Facebook Messenger, and monitor a Facebook account or page. Bot Libre provides its own Facebook app to provide many automation features, and lets you develop your own Facebook app to gain access to more features. To authorize a new account, just click the 'Authorize' button, then click 'Connect'. Some features are only supported for Facebook Page automation, or with your own Facebook app key.

To connect to a new account, first click 'Authorize', then 'Connect'.
