Google patents robot help for social media burnout
BBC, 22 Nov 2013
If maintaining your presence on social media is becoming a burden, Google may be able to help.
The search giant has patented plans for software which slowly learns how you react on social networks.
The software can mimic your usual responses to updates and messages from friends and relations to help cope with the daily data deluge.
The software also analyses continuing interaction and flags messages that demand a more personal response.
