Connect LiveAgent with Facebook to streamline your customer support, keep track of all messages and comments, boost agent productivity, and increase customer satisfaction with this game-changing integration.
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 gathers each comment, post, and message in your LiveAgent inbox, and 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!

By activating the Facebook integration feature, you can take all these actions directly from LiveAgent:
- Answer private/direct messages
- Send attachments, links, emojis, and GIFs
- Answer comments
- Like comments
- Delete comments by deleting tickets
- Resolve ticket by responding to it
