Mark Zuckerberg has made it clear that fake profiles and soviet robots have no place on Facebook.

But worry not, robots. 'Messenger' is still a hospitable home for bots like you.

At F8, Facebook's Vice President of Messaging Products, David Marcus, jovially reported that Messenger's integration with business is going swimmingly. According to Marcus, over 8 billion messages have been sent between people and businesses. And there are 300,000 monthly active bots engaging with customers on messenger.
