Creating a FaceBook Autoresponder For Your Page

If you’re using facebook fan pages to connect with your customers and fans then there is a pretty high chance that they are messaging you. You can’t always get to every message right away and it can leave your potential customers unsure if you’ve received or even check your facebook messages.
