I’m I the only one in the world who didn’t understand or really even know about BOTs until recently?And, I’m not sure I fully grasp the concept now. What I do comprehend is that one thing they do is manipulate data to get a desired result.

A survey can be blasted by Bots to skew the results. So survey asking our impression of everything from new products to political opinion can, and are, infiltrated by robotic results to produce a specific response.

Anything that you hear about the public’s opinion on Presidential performance to whether Americans prefer oranges or apples should be suspect in your mind. It is very likely the results are not based on actual human beings.

Which should leave you wondering what and whom to believe.
