1-800-Flowers, Food Network and others wrap up Messenger for ... - Mobile MarketerSunday, February 11, 2018
Day-themed dishes. IHeartRadio's bot lets listeners play a variety of Valentines-themed stations like "Slow Jams Radio" and "Love Songs Radio," which will be hosted by singer Kelly Clarkson until Feb. 18.Insight:The news points to how brands can leverage messaging apps to create one-to-one experiences for holiday's like Valentine's Day. Beyond that, these activations also suggest that brands are looking beyond creating interactive dialogs on Messenger and are increasingly consider how to drive purchases via the platform. This year, U.S. consumers are expected to spend an average of $143.56 on the holiday, up from $136.57 last year, according to the National Retail Federation.Facebook in the past couple of years has urged brands to create chatbots for its platform to open up direct lines of convenient communication with consumers. While chatbots have been criticized by some for their limited functionality and inability to hold a natural conversation with users, the technology continues to evolve with machine learning that makes bots smarter and more adaptive without the need for human intervention. Messenger also has evolved to provide a wider range of functions, although the company is also making an effort to streamline the app after letting it get too cluttered with bots, ads, alert and other features.As the love-themed holiday approaches, not everyone is showing the love for Facebook, as many advocacy groups and parents issue a growing chorus of criticism after the social giant created a messaging platform aimed at children under 13. Messenger Kids has aroused the ire of child advocacy groups and analysts of the tech industry, especially after toymaker Mattel pulled an "Amazon Alexa-esque" device for children for fear that it would spy on kids and use the data collected for ad targeting.
