Why these apps?

Frequently Asked Questions
How is this different from my Facebook Page?
As mentioned on our Home page, organic page reach for anything posted to your Facebook page is low and user engagement is restricted to commenting, liking or sharing a post. It falls short of communicating with all your followers for free.
Messenger is integrated into your Facebook page and allows your Facebook Page followers to seamlessly become Facebook Messenger subscribers. In this way, you are able to build a contactable database of your audience with whom you can communicate, instantly and for free.
Messenger offers your Shoppers an engaging and personalised conversation with your Centre 24/7.
