Launched on the quiet fairly recently, Facebook Saved replies lets you create and save a reply for later use , search through older replies to re-purpose it, and the ability to personalise replies instantly with your name, the customer name, your address, website, and more. Let's take a look!

ou'll notice the conversation between you and a customer on the right, and the new Saved Replies section on the left.

Here, I've mocked up a reply for a fictional company with a "quick reply" for people who ask about its delivery window. It's looking a bit impersonal, though....
Click "Personalize" for a quick way to add some personal touches to your saved replies...
Here, you'll be able to add a a variety of automatically-generated "placeholder" elements to your messages. Importantly, you'll want to place your cursor at the part of the message that you want to insert the element, as that's where it will appear when chosen.
Here's how the personalization looks once it's been added. I've also uploaded an image from my computer.
The placeholders will show you the preview of a message - in this case, I've used person's last name (Clinton) and Admin's first name.
