A lot of clients write to me related my BTC projects via Facebook, Telegram and Bitcointalk.

It happened to me once that a client felt offended because I have not replied to him. He thought that I ignored him on intention and got mad. In fact, I did not reply because I was too occupied. Later, explaining it to him eased his pain.

Better would be preventing similar issues so do you have any method or program that can auto-respond messages at the mentioned three sites?

Do they? They could detect if you send alot from the same message, but it should take just a little bit smarter system to make a difference between spamming and legit auto-responding.

Then I need this kind of service for Bitcointalk and Telegram too.

For Bitcointalk, there's no official API (yet; one of the requirements for the new forum software is modular API access so here's hoping), though I've coded enough bots for interacting with this forum to know that it's possible. You could either run it while you're browsing (userscript (adds a tiny bit of overhead on each affected page load, inherently buggier than any other implementation) or browser plugin), have your computer turned on (desktop program; safest though limited to when the computer's turned on (obviously)) or constantly (running on a server; highest uptime though you'd have to either keep the session cookies or your login details on the server + you'd appear as if you're always online).

For Telegram, there seems to be a developer API (and I've been seeing quite a few altcoin-related Telegram bots pop up within my section) so it probably wouldn't be too much of a hassle implementing an auto-responder.

For Facebook, there also seems to be an API, though as a user previously mentioned, I'm not sure on what their policy on auto-responders is.

Good idea. Need one for BCT too. I wouldn't conduct business via FB (too much personal info involved) ! Maybe for linkedin

Thank you, mprep! I read your answer not too long after you posted it, I just did not wish to log in from my workplace (strict IT security policy) and when returning to college I simply always was tired. I feel good to have a perspective as for implementing such auto-responders with the mentioned services. It surely needs more research on my part, though.

But this thread served its purpose. Thank you all for the contribution!
