When adding a new Facebook page to your giosg account, make sure you have admin rights to the Facebook page as only admins can complete the installation. Just click "+ Add pages" and log in to Facebook. By logging in, a connection is automatically made between your Facebook account and giosg account and you will be guided through the rest of the steps.
You can add several Facebook pages to your giosg account and use routers to decide which chat team serves which page. To add more pages, go to Settings → Apps, click "Setup" and then "Add pages".
After linking your accounts and choosing a page in Facebook, you will be redirected to giosg. You can then choose which room you would like the Facebook messenger conversations to be directed to. You can use an existing room such as the room where your chats take place, or create a new room for Facebook chats only.Typically having a separate room for Facebook chats is a good idea, as this allows you to separately monitor chat amounts for your website and Facebook page. You can also have different tags and routers for these chats.
Need to create a new room for Facebook chats? Just head over to Settings → Rooms, click "Create new room" (or domain) and name the new room (for example "Facebook"). Also remember to add a router for the room.
