That’s right.

Now, Gist integrates with Facebook messenger.

You and your team can manage all of the messages from the most popular social platform inside of Gist.

Think about it. Tagging, tracking and monitoring Facebook conversations in real time — just like you already do with our Live Chat and Email Marketing features!

Want to know how to get it all setup?

Here are the written instructions.

The Gist

  • Log into Gist
  • Go to Settings > Integrations
  • Click on the “Connect” button next on the Facebook section
  • Login to Facebook > Choose the Page you’d like to integrate

First, Log into Gist

Once you are in the Gist Dashboard, check the left hand sidebar.

Note: If you don’t see “Settings” at first, try scrolling directly on top half of the sidebar itself.

Clicking “Connect” will open up a pop-up either asking you to sign in or asking if you’d like to continue.

Choose the appropriate course of action 🙂

Where Do the Messages Go?

To keep things as simple as possible, the messages from Messenger (say that 10x fast) will go into the same place as all other messages.

In order to differentiate, there will be a small Facebook logo on the messages that came in from there.
