…and your only way to tell is because he compulsively likes everything you do.
Yes, how else would you know? We give our lives, our thoughts, our likes, our preferences, our contacts, our agenda, our locations, our family pictures,… to the insatiable ogre we call social media. We give it so much, it knows more about ourselves than our closest friend. So when your closest friend will be replaced by a bot, a bot so easily tuned thanks to all the inputs it received for years, how will you know?
My Facebook avatar is now being part time ran by a bot that likes everything my friends do. I plan to have it take over completely over my profile by the end of the month. If you would like to be part of this experiment, add me as a friend. If you don’t want me to like everything you do, get out of Facebook (or more easily, unfriend me).
(You can also get the code on github and run it on your own profile)
