Our goal with Mobile Text Alerts is to make it as easy and effective for you to get information out to your groups. That’s why we let you not only send messages via texting, but we also let you send messages via email, phone message alerts, and even text-to-speech.
We have added a new medium for you to get information out to your groups: Facebook Messenger.
Facebook Messenger is used by 400 million people monthly, and has become a into many people’s daily lives.
With our new Facebook Messenger feature, when you send out messages, they can go to both your subscriber’s phones as SMS messages, and also to their Facebook Messenger accounts.
How does it work?
First, enable the Facebook Messenger Integration in your control panel on the “Settings” page.
Your subscribers can then sign up to receive Facebook Messenger alerts on your accounts signup page by clicking the “Send to Messenger” button.
Now, whenever you send a message, anyone who has signed up via messenger will receive the message both via text and via Facebook Messenger
We hope this is useful for you! Please let us know if you have any feedback on how to improve this new feature.
