(TECH CRUNCH) – Too busy to keep up with your friends? There’s a chat bot for that.

We’ve all been there. The deluge of information on Facebook is why I no longer bother to check the social network — because, even when I try my hardest, I miss the important announcements like baby births and marriage proposals. The growth of messaging apps helped here for a while. People broke out into groups where they make announcements and stay in touch, but now that chat apps are used by almost everyone, there’s a lot more information and it becomes impossible to read everything. So, once again, I miss most of my friends’ news and updates, but, added to that, they know I’m not reading or taking part in the discussion like I should be.
