Do I need a Facebook page to use this plugin?

Will this plugin break any other bots I have on Messenger?

I have nothing to complain about the plugin itself, very handy to use. Though, there is a display issue with the chat box when accessing my blog via Firefox, but I know it’s not your fault. It behaves exactly the same no matter what other plugin I use or just plain javascript code from FB messenger. I searched for a solution but didn’t find anything relevant yet. Anyway, good job!

This is a very useful plugin. We get a lot of messages and most times that leads to new businesses for our clients. The only thing I wish it would tell us if someone is chatting with us from the website. Most times you won’t know unless you ask. *new feature request.
