Automatically send messages on Facebook with this Facebook automation

Connecting with someone via private message is incredibly powerful. It allows deep focus on a single person and genuine care for their feedbacks. How about scaling that action in order to get more answers from your friends on Facebook?

That's precisely what this Facebook automation does. Fill a list of Facebook profile URLs (you can use some of our other Facebook automations to generate that list), write down your message and schedule it to be sent automatically.


1. Create your account.

Free trial for 14 days. Then switch to a Free plan or become a customer.

SIGN UP

* no credit card required

2. Add this Facebook automation to your account.

3. Click on Configure me!

You'll now see the 3 configuration dots blinking. Click on them.

4. Easy & safe authentication

This automation will connect to the website on your behalf. The safest and most efficient way for Phantombuster to authenticate as yourself is by using your session cookies.

To make that process as easy as possible you can use Phantombuster's browser extension. It's a 2-click installation.

If you're operating from another browser and/or want to do it manually, here is how to do it.

5. Specify which Facebook users you want to automatically send messages to.

Create a spreadsheet on Google Spreadsheet.

Fill it with Facebook profile URLs. One profile URL per row, all in column A.

Make this spreadsheet public so Phantombuster can access it.

Paste the spreadsheet's URL to Phantombuster.

6. Personalize your message

In the message textbox, write the message you want to send out (Note: Emojis aren't handled.)

If necessary, you can personalize your message. #fbFirstName# will be replaced in your message by the first name of the person you’re adding. The other tags available are #fbName# and #fbLastName#, replaced by their full name and last name.

How about using your own tags ? Add a column in your Google Spreadsheet with any informations you want to apply.

For instance: A column named greetings in your Google Spreadsheet will replace all #greetings# tags in your message.

Start your automation!

You're all set. Just click "launch" to get your automation started!

Set this Facebook automation on repeat

Once your automation's configuration is ready, you can schedule repetitive launches. This will allow you to avoid rate limits, scrape more data and get your automated workflows to spread over days, weeks, even months.

To do so, go to your dashboard and look for your automation's “Settings” button.

Then, select a frequency:

And Save those new settings at the bottom of the page.

Recommendations

👮 Facebook limits: Facebook tends to notice when too many messages are sent in a short period of time. They also monitor how many messages you send to people you don't know. In order to avoid Facebook temporarily block your messages space out launches and use a proxy.
