Facebook Messenger developers have created 100,000 bots for Messenger in the first year of the Messenger Platform.

VP David Marcus made the announcement onstage during a keynote presentation at F8, an annual conference for developers making products for Facebook platforms.

“Now we’ve doubled messages between business and people to two billion messages a month, and more than 100,000 bots on the platform. That’s up from 33,000 last September. That’s crazy,” Marcus said.

The initial Messenger Platform, announced onstage at F8 a year ago, was created to allow businesses and third-party developers to make their own bots.
