Facebook’s Page Plugin Now Lets Users Chat With Messenger & Subscribe To Events

facebook-f-logo-1920

Earlier this year Facebook launched “Page Plugin”, an embedded widget that promoted Facebook pages and content. This month, they announced that they’ve bulked up the functionality to do much more than simply promote content. Page Plugin can now handle messages from customers (using Messenger functionality) as well as integrating with Facebook Events.

Messaging

If you are a brand that leverages Facebook and Messenger for customer service this integration is right up your alley. Visitors can now pen a message and instantly send to your staff and follow up using messenger. For customers, this is a clear win – no extra contact accounts needed and contacts occurring on a platform that they are familiar with.

Events

According to Facebook 55 million public Facebook events were created last year. Events can now be managed and featured within Page Plugin. Visitors will now have the ability to respond to an event in the familiar format that Page Plugin offers. Here’s a look at this in action on the F8 website.

This will also support events in multiple cities by offering a localized experience, showing the most relevant event based off of location.

Another SEO tool drops the word “SEO”

This guest post is by Majestic’s Marketing Director, Dixon Jones, who explains the reasons for their recent name change.
Majestic, the link intelligence database that many SEOs have come to use on a daily basis, has dropped the “SEO” from it’s brand and from its domain name, to become majestic.com. Since most people won’t have used Google’s site migration tool before, here’s what it looks like once you press the “go” button:

In actual fact – there’s a minor bug in the tool. The address change is to the https version of majestic.com (which GWT makes us register as a separate site) but that message incorrectly omits that. Fortunately, elsewhere in GWT its clear the omission is on Google’s side, not a typo from the SEO. It is most likely that the migration tool was developed before the need for Google to have separate verification codes for http and https versions of the site.
