One can’t help but imagine bot-2-bot conversation, an endless loop of automated responses, ad infinitum.
It becomes blindingly clear who is real and who is not based on various elements of the both the user’s chat handle as well as their vernacular. With the number of bots proliferating in the rooms, there can be no doubt that at some point we failed the Turing Test.
This is the result of share-all philosophy, which paradoxically loses the individual in the process.
Engaged in a complicated form of necrophilia, the user hopes to find a sex partner in a cemetery.These later social web platforms have taken the place of self-made homepages devoted to the individual.No longer content to be members of specialized forums and bulletin boards, users opted instead for global citizenship featuring profile environments –the WWW’s version of a passport, or ID.I remember a time when the Internet of the ‘90s was filled with various spaces of sociality, catering to specialized categories and celebrities, likes and dislikes, somewhat chaotic and inundated with an overuse of graphics and early animation –it was a space to get lost in.Users created and maintained identities with meaningful usernames and chat handles, or pseudonyms.
Using auto-response, the bots are subject to well-defined algorithms, rules of sociality and expected reactions, even when no one is there.
