Our chatbot Walter enables you and your audience to post to your social wall through Facebook Messenger without actually posting the information to your profile publicly.
Technically, Walter is not a standard chatbot in the sense that he’s not equipped with an AI and won’t have amusing conversations with you. He’s set up to do one thing only – and he does it really well.
Post to a Social Wall from Facebook Messenger
Walter allows you to post directly to a Walls.io social media wall simply by typing your message using the wall's hashtag into the Facebook Messenger window.
Remember to tell your fans that you’ve added a new way of posting to your social media wall through Facebook Messenger.
Set up Walter for your Social Wall
Setting up Walter for your social wall is easy. All you have to do is go to Settings > Sources in your Walls.io dashboard and add Facebook Messenger under sources. Enter the hashtag(s) that you’re using for your social wall and you're good to go:
Talk to Walter
You can talk to Walter by messaging him through Facebook Messenger.
If you ask Walter for a ‘list’ of events, he will give you a rundown of Walls.io Walls and corresponding hashtags that are currently connected to the bot.
Walter is here for everyone: there’s no separate bot for each Wall. All Walls are connected to the same bot:
You can send posts to specific Walls simply by typing your message into the chat window including the wall's hashtag. The hashtag you use decides which Wall your message gets posted to:
Enter your message and the right hashtag and Walter will post to the wall for you:
You can post text-only messages as well as images & videos.
Please note: uploading videos is not possible for EU-residents.
We’re aware that Walter might be tempting some people into over-posting, especially since their posts are only publicly visible on the social wall and nowhere else. So, we’ve embedded a spam protection into this feature that only permits one message per minute.
Furthermore, you can always use Walls.io’s strong moderation features to stay in control of your wall.
