How To Filter and Send Positive Facebook Posts to Slack

Let's say, you manage Facebook page of a big international brand or your own Facebook page. Thousands of visitors come to your Facebook page with a variety of questions, suggestions or even critique keep flocking to your page with questions, suggestions or critiques. Many of these may not even be in your native language.That's a bit tricky. How can you respond to someone who writes you in a language you're not proficient?

In today's post, we're going to address that issue specifically. In other words, we will explain how to translate and receive Facebook notifications directly to Slack.

First, login to your account, or in case you don't have one, you can always create one for free.

Let's get started. Our pipeline will begin with the trigger-based On New Status pipe. It triggers every time when there is a new post on our page.


We can always map more custom fields to reflect nature of the update such as link captions, URLs, status types,and date of creation.

Cloudpipes will then translate the post into English via Google Translate.


Here we have filled out the text field with the type of information we want to see displayed in Slack.

After the Facebook status is translated into English, we're going to check if the status is positive or negative with our built-in Text channel.


If the Facebook update does match the previous criteria, then Cloudpipes will send a message in Slack detailing the update and its polarity.


And that's how you can quickly and efficiently translate and transmit Facebook updates with the help of Cloudpipes.
