It is no longer sufficient for a business to only connect with their customers on their website.
Customers now use a variety of different messaging and social media platforms, and expect to be able to connect with businesses through social media.
If your business is not on Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, or other platforms you are missing engaging with your customers.
Bot Libre now supports integrating with XML and JSON web services, HTML scraping, and access to Twitter, Facebook, Telegram, email, and other services. From our scripting languages Self, and AIML you can now access any web service that returns XML or JSON data. You can also scrape information from HTML web pages, and send emails, tweets, Facebook posts, Telegram posts, and more.
