Facebook chatbots are not a new concept. Facebook used to have such a thing called Messenger, a free service that lets users chat with friends, family and business associates. And it looks like Facebook is in the process of bringing that chatbot feature to Messenger. That is, if they get the OK from all concerned parties.
Chatbots are usually sophisticated programs that help you interact with other people. They can deliver information about products, services and businesses to assist your decision making. These programs can be as simple as delivering newsletters or as complex as taking your orders or your credit card information. In addition, this technique also uses the Internet to deliver a product to your doorstep.
With a chatbot, you do not have to input a lot of information into a website and send it via email. In fact, a lot of chatting goes on online. There is a lot of information that needs to be stored and shared between various chatbots. That is why chatbots are becoming more important in the cyber world.
When you log into different sites using a chatbot, the chatbot will take control of the server of the site. As a result, only the chatbot can access it. Therefore, no one else can access the website.
The main reason why chatbots are necessary these days is because of the growing popularity of the World Wide Web. And people no longer want to wait for an email to arrive before they can do something on the Web. Many would rather stay up-to-date with everything that happens on the Web. To be able to keep them updated, chatbots have been programmed to make use of all available data from the Web.
Even if Facebook came up with this idea, they were unable to stop Facebook chatbot development. At the same time, Messenger developers also continued working on chatbots. The question is, who should they let develop these chatbots? Should Facebook have control over the development of Messenger chatbots?
What is intriguing about this is that Facebook can already control what you do on Messenger. But if they allow third party developers to come up with chatbots for Messenger, they may lose control over its users. At the same time, that means that the bots that Facebook Messenger has in the beginning will be left behind, unless Facebook allows third party developers to come up with new bots for Messenger.
A final question about the Facebook chatbot is if it will be able to provide better results than a typical chatbot program would have. All chatbots are designed to give the best results. However, a chatbot that is based on artificial intelligence cannot guarantee any results.
Artificial intelligence and chatbots use various methods to achieve their goals. While it is possible to put the most intelligent bot on the Internet, they still need human intervention to make certain decisions. But a chatbot that is based on artificial intelligence cannot predict what a person wants to say, because the machines still lack basic communication skills.
Facebook, however, will be competing with the likes of Microsoft and Google in the future. Their bot platforms and applications are being developed by these tech giants. If they would try to copy the exact processes of the Facebook chatbot, that would leave Facebooks market open to other rivals.
In conclusion, we have to ask ourselves if Facebook really wants to include a chatbot for Messenger. They want to be the best at what they do, but they also want to be the best at everything. It does not seem likely that they would copy the processes of the Messenger chatbot.
The truth is that Facebook wants to be the best social media platform on the Web. And with Facebook Chatbot, they are now a step closer to being that way.
