Social Media Bots – An unpopular choice reveals a study

Surprisingly, the bots that we assume are a helping hand have a bad image – a report by the Pew Research Center reveals.

According to the survey by Pew, 66 percent of internet users are educated regarding the bots and defined it as “accounts that operate on their own, without human involvement.”

In the survey, Pew interviewed 4,581 U.S. adults. The findings include:
  • 47 percent of respondents who claim that they know a lot about bots were confident that they would recognize these accounts immediately. 
  • 81 percent of the individuals surveyed claim that a moderate amount of news from social media comes from these accounts while 17 percent contradicted by saying the majority does. 
  • 92 percent of participants were opposed to the idea of using a bot and says that they are responsible for spreading fake news. 
  • Majority agreed that the bots were mainly used by celebrities to encourage more followers
