Video Posts:

Videos can be a bit tricky sometimes. Facebook provides an ID when you create the video, but as soon as there is one comment in this post, they change the Post ID and we aren’t able to respond to these comments. In order to resolve this issue, you need to follow these steps to create rules for Video Posts:

  1. Open the Video in your Facebook Page;
  2. Post any comments to this video post;
  3. Copy the URL to your comment as in the example below. Right click on the time stamp of the comment and then click on Copy Link Address.The URL should look like this:
  4. Remove the ?comment_id=2800572976628332 part, and use the part as the link in Link Existing Post in our UI.
  5. Done! You’ve got the correct Post ID, now you can delete the comment from your Video to keep it clean.

Comment Capture Analytics

To view the total summary of all your comment capture posts, click on Comment Capture from the Sidebar. In the sreenshot below, you can see the analytics.

  1. Total User Comments mean how many people commented on your page posts.
  2. Total Conversions mean how many people became your subscribers. When people comment on your post, they receive the first reply on their messenger. Now, the people who reply to this first reply on their messenger, they become your subscribers and hence the conversion count increases.
  3. Total Replies Sent means how many people received the first reply after commenting on your page post
  4. Waiting Conversions mean how many people got the first reply after commenting on your page post but have not replied back to that First Reply on Messenger and hence, have not became your subscriber yet.

In order to view analytics of a particular post, click on View beside that post.

Here you can see total user comments, comments removed from FB(if any), total conversions, total replies sent, waiting conversions along with one additional analytic Negative Match. Negative Match is the count of all comments which didn’t receive the first reply from the bot.This could be due to the fact that comment contained some excluded keywords that you had set while configuring the comment capture or its a second/third comment by someone who has already received a bot reply in their messenger and have not replied to it yet. You can see these analytics in the form of a pie chart as well.

Other than that, you can see that post content here.

You can also see the comments on your post. In order to apply filters on comments, click on Apply Filters. 

You can search the comments on the basis of their text and comment date. Click on Apply to apply the filter.

You can export the analytics and comments in a csv file as well.
