Chatbots are automated messaging between an organization and a customer. For example, I signed up for a Weather chatbot on Facebook Messenger that “chats” with me in the early morning and the early evening every day with the latest weather forecast.

I’m using it mostly to consume “snaps” or “stories” rather than snap chatting with my friends (none of my friends are using it!)
