Facebook is a free social networking website that allows registered users to create profiles, upload photos, and videos, send messages and keep in touch with friends, family, and colleagues.

Connecting LiveAgent with Facebook enables LiveAgent users to respond to Facebook messages, posts, or comments directly from their LiveAgent dashboard (without having to log into Facebook itself), making it a very workflow efficient integration. 

How does it work?

LiveAgent streamlines each comment, post, and message into your LiveAgent inbox, and then converts it into a ticket. From there, agents can respond to each ticket just as if they would on Facebook. The end result? Your customers won’t notice any difference other than your response speed!

Convinced you don’t need to provide support on Facebook? Think again!

If you’re not using Facebook as a customer support channel, you’re not living in the 21st century! As of 2021, there are almost 2.8 billion monthly active users on Facebook. Moreover, modern customers are tech-savvy digital natives and avid Facebook users that demand social media be treated just like any other support channel. In fact, according to a survey by Conversocial, 54% of customers prefer social media for customer service over the phone or email.

If over half your customer base prefers social media as a customer support channel, they cannot be ignored. It’s time to cater to your customer’s needs and expectations and move your business into the 21st century.

We keep your data secure as can be

LiveAgent eliminates the need to share Facebook login credentials amongst your employees. Once your Facebook account is connected with LiveAgent, all of your employees can answer messages and comments without having to log in to the platform.

This is great because it significantly reduces the chance of data leaks and stolen data. Your employees won’t have to worry about writing down passwords, losing them, or staying logged in to your Facebook on public computers.

Keep customer satisfaction at an all-time high

LiveAgent connects with your Facebook page and tracks all wall posts, comments, and private messages so you can have your fans and haters under control 24/7. Everything is tracked and transformed into Tickets so your customer support Agents can react as soon as a complaint is registered and thus put out the fire before it spreads. With LiveAgent, you have 100% certainty that nothing gets lost on Facebook.
