Chatbots are created to be practical and helpful. They help us with our day to day tasks so we can concentrate on what we do best.
Since we’re living in the time of connectivity, we’re connected with our most loved superstars via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. The problem, of course, is that celebrities rarely say anything back. But now this empty space of conversing with your beloved stars is filled with chatbots! We can ask them about their lives and their upcoming projects.
Why are Celebrity Bots important?
For instance, a retweet, a like, a reply, a DM, a signature, a wink or any form of interaction from a celebrity gives the fan a warm and fuzzy feeling. If you are attempting to build up a fan base, you want to create as many warm and fuzzy feelings as possible.
Messenger is just yet another platform where over 1 Billion fans react with celebrities, as many stars are receiving messages from their fans via Messenger. Often, these messages are simply ignored, and frankly, understandably. If I were an artist, I wouldn’t want to reply to every single message sent in by a fan either; it would just take up too much of my time.
Why Chatbots Help Celebrities Connect With Their Fans
“Chatbots may also offer a glimpse of the music industry’s future, which is already beginning to involve in virtual-reality concerts, playlist algorithms and virtual assistants, such as Amazon’s Alexa,” says Cortney Harding, a consultant to music technology companies and the author of How We’ll Listen Next: The Future of Music from Streaming to Virtual Reality.
Maroon 5 also demonstrated its value for commercial research. In February, a day before the band released its single “Cold,” it sent a 10-second clip of the song to its chatbot followers. Within 24 hours, fans sent 100,000 messages to the bot and shared the clip widely on social media.
Fans are always looking for ways to talk to the celebrities they look up to. First, there were talk shows with dedicated Q&A segments, then came Facebook fan pages and Twitter and Instagram, and now, there are Chatbots!
Chatbots bring famous celebrities, who were earlier out of reach, closer to their fans than ever before.
Check out our most popular celebrity-bots to start chatting with them.
1. SELENA GOMEZ
Everybody loves Selena Gomez. She’s gorgeous and makes some great music. But have you ever thought about talking to her and asking about her life and her music? Talking to the SelenaBot was a good experience for me, as the bot replied instantly. It greeted me in a nice way *blushes*, and when I asked her about her favorite songs, she told me! If you’re a Selena fan, then you should definitely try talking to this chatbot.
2. KIM KARDASHIAN BOT
Unsurprisingly, one of the top 3 celebrity chatbots on Bottr, Kim Kardashian’s bot gets bombarded with a ton of questions and fan messages on a daily basis.
From her infamous sex tape to Keeping up with the Kardashians, her mobile game Kim Kardashian: Hollywood to her countless photoshoots, Kim Bot answers all fan Q&As with her innate attitude
3.DONALD TRUMP BOT
With the US elections and Donald Trump being on top of Google searches this year, it goes without saying that people across the globe have questions for him ─ and now they can get answers!
Bots have come a long way since the days we have read the news and watched for paparazzi photos, and they still have a long way to go to truly augment and have them think just like us.
That being said, celebrity chatbots are doing surprisingly well. For fans, they present a case of “something is better than nothing” and make fans feel closer to the celebrities who they look up to.
