At F8 in April 2017 Facebook announced the release of support for several new integrations as well as support for bots. We believe that bots in combination with Workplace by Facebook can truly change the way companies operate and become a more agile, fast and fun environment to work in. Facebook themselves are already using 100+ bots internally and in my view it is only a matter of time before this takes the enterprise with storm.
As this is fairly new, and at this point there is no official directory or app store for these bots we have put together a list of those we are aware of. If you know of others, please go ahead and drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will go ahead and get this added.
