Firefox Tracking Flags

(Not tracked)

The engagement team is looking for help answering Facebook threads. It may be a good idea to add these comments to AoA so contributors can answer from here. It looks like the Facebook Graph API allows us to do so:

To read the messages:
To write on the thread:

The benefits of doing this:
- Centralized way of helping users with short answers.
- Canned responses
- We can track what comments are answered and which are not.
- We may be able to have a branded account that is the one used to post the answers: i.e. "Facebook Help Volunteers" or similar.

Not a priority, but something to look into and probably a good summer project.
I agree, it would be great to have this. There are number of unknowns here though. If we want to move this forward, we should start with a project page. Here is a template:

I'm happy to participate if someone starts this, it's not high on my priority list though, we just added @Firefox to AoA. Tracking the progress of that for now.

Indeed is a low priority. I added a placeholder:
should we still need this? since now, lots of moderator are active on Firefox facebook page [1]

Like Swarnava said in comment 3, there is an amazing team moderating comments on the Facebook page. There is also no longer a wall on the Facebook page, so I'm not sure if this should still be considered. Pinging Madalina
