In recent years, glamorous senior living buildings have popped up in cities nationwide promising to freshen up the senior living formula with flashy new features. 

When it comes to choosing the right senior living community for you or your loved one, though, “new” isn’t necessarily “better.” There may be more options for senior living communities than ever before, but here are some tips – 

A Recipe with a Reputation

Reviews from residents of senior living communities are particularly important as they can help you find out what the residents love—and aren’t thrilled about — before you make the big step of moving in. 

Newer residences might not offer this opportunity because they don’t yet have a long-term reputation. Unlike established communities, you’ll have to take their associates and management at their word instead of residents who live there.

A Community Flavor

Established senior living communities know that one of the keys to their success is how they build and nurture a warm and welcoming group of residents. That familial feeling takes time, often years, to develop. That goes for cultivating relationships with the surrounding community, too. 

A Tested Formula

In an industry where time-tested policies and procedures have enormous impacts on the health and happiness of residents, established communities with strong track records of compliance over many years are the gold standard, something that new providers haven’t been around long enough to earn.


Like any other online chatbot, a Facebook Messenger Bot can be automatically added to a website to answered questions and chat with customers. However, there's one big difference in addition to being able to chat with people, Facebook Messenger Bot is also good at performing background tasks. As a result, not only can a Facebook Messenger Bot add new friends and send messages, but it can also help you run your company in more efficient ways.

Unfortunately, a lot of companies think they need to outsource everything to a bot including tasks that don't really require any human interaction. In most cases, automation is bad for business. This is because chat bots can take up valuable office space and increase employee turnover. Instead of outsourcing everything, however, companies should focus on using Facebook Messenger Bot to automate as much of their business as possible. And since Messenger Chat Bots is so easy to install and use, it's a great way to do just that.

Before getting too deep into the automation rabbit hole, it's important to understand how a Facebook Messenger Bot works. Basically, a Facebook Messenger Bot (also referred to as a Facebook Messenger Bot or F BM) is designed to automatically post specific text or image messages to a specified destination. For example, the bot might post a message to notify the person that a new message has been posted on their wall. The message can be a link to a blog post or sales announcement that the user wants to read first, or it can simply be an explanation of recent changes to the person's Wall page.

The major advantage to using a Facebook Messenger Bot to automate tasks instead of sending messages in the form of unsolicited bulk messages is that the bot is not limited to only posting to a particular channel or friend's list, which limits its functionality and makes it less effective overall. Because of this, Facebook has provided several different versions of its messaging app, which run on separate web servers and connect via an instant messenger like chat client on mobile devices. These bots are able to add various features and function entirely on their own, but the main advantage to using one of these web-based Facebook Messenger Bots is the simplified ability to link different functions together through common content.

The major drawback to using these bots is that they lack the personalized touch that comes with providing human interaction. This can cause people to misunderstand what a Facebook Messenger Bot is actually trying to accomplish. Some Facebook chat Bots will post status updates and share links through their channel, but this does not mean that each comment or post is relevant and unique. Likewise, there is often no way to tell which comments and posts are made by actual Facebook employees and which are random or promotional. Since the nature of bots is to act solely on pre-programmed parameters, it can become easy for customers and others on the social network to misinterpret what a chat bot is actually saying.

This issue has become even more problematic because of the way that Facebook's privacy policies have changed over time. While the company claims that it does not store any conversations between third parties, it has allowed third-party apps to use the chat system as a means of collecting information about users. Facebook Messenger Bots has become something of a problem because of how easily they have become used for promotional purposes. In order to get around this problem, developers have created apps that run separately from the main Facebook application. However, many of these bots still reference the main Facebook site in order to update the conversation history and add new comments and contacts.

However, the biggest issue facing Facebook's bot platform is the ease with which spammers use them to try and answer questions and post links. Spam bots often post advertisements for various products and services in the form of a chat bot, which is difficult for Facebook to detect. Because the vast majority of Facebook users do not spend very much time on the internal messaging system, spammers have had much success in using Facebook Messenger Bot for their own ends. To combat this issue, Facebook has placed an appeal to stop "bot" used on the chat interface by displaying a red "BOT!" icon on messages that appear to be spam.

While it might seem that Facebook is limiting its options in the effort to provide a more robust customer matching service, the company's decision to limit the functionality of the Facebook Messenger Bot means that spammers will continue to have an easy and convenient way of advertising their products to Facebook's audience of over 80 million users. Bot developers and other third-party applications will continue to create Facebook Messenger Bot experiences that run independently of the main Facebook application. Facebook is also planning to release an update to the Facebook Instant Messenger application in the future that will allow users to chat within the Facebook application. For now, though, Facebook users will have to wait to enjoy the benefits of customer matching, which will allow them to look up names and profiles of friends who have gone missing, find people with the same interests as their own, and create profiles to share news about their favorite hobbies. While the Facebook chat interface may be limited, millions of Facebook users are likely to continue using the chat system to stay connected with their friends and loved ones, regardless of whether or not Facebook decides to release a consumer version of the Facebook Messenger Bot.
