AOL Adds Bots To Talk to Me
AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) has added some bots to give information to users of AIM. Two not too smart bots have been added to everyone’s list to help them find movie information and be another avenue of advertising for AOL.
It looks like someone at AOL has figured that if they’re already bombarding you with ads around the IM window, why not put them directly in your buddy list? Like plenty of others, when I logged into AIM this morning, I was told that the company decided I was too lonely and added two AIM bots that I certainly didn’t request and really didn’t want in my buddy list. They put them up top, too, in case I missed them.
Another reason to dislike AOL and AIM.
