The bots revolution is happening because the interwebs are going through some fairly dramatic changes—users’ online habits are not what they once were. We’ve all seen that business insider chart that shows the “big 4” messaging apps trajecting past the “big 4” social apps. that chart is at least a year old and shows that messaging surpassed social in 2015!!!!!! Given that messaging is where people are spending their time, and given that ad blockers are now pervasive … bots give retailers a means to fish where the fish are, so to speak.
