    Facebook announced this week that its Artificial Intelligence (AI) assistant program, M, will now be able to make suggestions to users within private messages.

    The social media giant first introduced the concept of M more than a year and a half ago, promising a do-it-all virtual assistant.

    "Unlike other AI-based services in the market, M can actually complete tasks on your behalf," Facebook VP of messaging products wrote at the time.

    "It can purchase items, get gifts delivered to your loved ones, book restaurants, travel arrangements, appointments and way more."

    M isn't capable of all that yet, but starting this month for iOS and Android users, it will be able to analyze your conversations in Facebook Messenger.

    Based upon the subject of your conversation, it will make recommendations to you such as sharing your location, calling an Uber or a Lyft, making a payment, or sending stickers.

    Facebook was quick to point out that M will not barge into conversations invasively -- according to Stan Chudnovsky, Facebook head of product for Messenger, it will only appear "if the chances are really, really high that you'd pick [the suggestion] up." :D

    That is an oxymoron.

    If I'm not expecting this thing to barge into my conversation and it does, that's invasive.

    I wonder if you can block it.

    Facebook is gonna go the way of Myspace faster than you think.

    The quality of the social interactions there is near zero. 100% fake shit. News comments are a warzone. Personal posts are 100% crap. Specific groups are descending to shit too, hobbies, and stuff are filled with frustrated idiots who end up scaring away the real pros.

    For years now I only use it to promote sites and no longer have a personal account. I think FB is dying rapidly. It's a fucking waste of time on a personal level.

    So if I create a ton of accounts that mimic this intrusive FB bot can I bank from that?

    I only ask because I am sure 400 guys are working on how to do that now.

    Well, 401 now.

    Sorry BassTrackerBoats if i haven't understand your reply correctly,
    but how can you mimic a bot, when they plan to insert messages into conversation between private accounts.
    To do that, you should be already invited, with that account into the chat group to mimic bots actions.

    Yeah, you cannot enter into convos but you can start them saying, "Hi, I'm the FB Bot and I saw that you were interested in XZY. FB recommends my {affiliate link|landing page} as they have passed our security and legitimacy checks. Please take a look and respond so we get your feedback as a valued member here on FB."

    That might work, you mimic the bot profile page, the only problem might be, messages landing on "messages request" place, where you don't get notification for them.
    Thanks.

    That could actually work and as the guy said, the messages will just go to the filtered messages especially when you include links on your messages. No one checks their message request for a year or forever.

    I get notifications when someone messages me even if they are not a friend... maybe that is because I use a laptop as opposed to mobile.

    I'll play with the idea and see if there is some kind of workaround as there usually is if you dig deep enough.

    My first reaction was annoyance.

    Your first reaction was "Let's make money off of this."

    I have a long way to go. :|

    Looks like we are getting closer to "Matrix" or "Terminator".

    It has long begun. Few more years and the first perfect android will be released in public.

    privacy issues; fake news; hate speech fines; terrorist recruiting; etc.

    M.Z. is destroying his own creation faster than i would have thought possible.
