It seems artificial intelligence is up everyone’s alley! Social media platforms, YouTube videos — you name it, it’s there! With all this potential, AI can revolutionize the social visibility of all enterprises.
While AI still is a mystery in many ways, with much left to be explored, a considerable number of technologies around us are already dosed with AI. Whether you are shopping for your Halloween costume or looking for a huge bag of candy, it’s all over your smartphone!
From voice-assistants to dictatorial GPS voices bossing us about which turn to take, we have adopted and explored AI in almost every possible way.

So, why are they so eager about big data applications in social media? Let’s find out, shall we?
Businesses Using AI to Their Benefit
AI is like a technology under Harry Potter’s invisible cloak! While many businesses are already heavily relying on it, their awareness of it is still limited. How do brands benefit from this? Let’s start by saying it only takes a bare minimum of marketing effort to ensure boosted insights and analytics.
The reasons to adopt AI are endless, but many of them are listed in the image below.
While chatbots incorporated with natural language processing (NLP) are already extending “a helping hand” and handling customer service, apps and smartphones loaded with voice assistants are also aiding companies. With their efforts keeping the competition at bay, their content and websites are completely catering to the big data and AI landscape.
Additionally, machine learning has been personalizing service delivery to such a degree that it boosts the customization-element. This brings us to the impact of AI on users (or was it because of the users that AI was brought in? The chicken and the egg thing crops up again!).
AI and UX: The Dynamic Duo
Customization is the key when it comes to fetching clients and drawing them down the sales funnel. With AI, this is feasible. The bespoke experiences of users can be cultured by over-processing and collecting data from individual clients, as is done by social media marketers. Considering artificial intelligence’s role in this landscape, the entire process can be streamlined to gain an understanding of what works best with users.
With a deeper understanding of the user’s purchase intent, it becomes convenient to highlight any venues, events, or social media ads as per their current locations. With this, there is a portkey created between AI and social media platforms to boost the visibility of the business. So, let’s find out about AI in social media!
The Golden Trio: AI, Data Science, Social Media
Get this — when it comes to the implementation of AI and machine learning in social media, nothing can top Facebook’s use of it. Take a look at these statistics:
- Facebook Stories has 300 million active users daily.
- An estimated 350 million photos are added to Facebook every day.
The reason why Facebook manages to stay at the elite level is that it is actively involved in the utilization of its data collection and, hence, can craft a personalized suggestion list of products and services to users. With this neural network, one can use these cues to analyze the conversation types that run across the site.
This includes the consideration of facial recognition technology in Facebook’s AI framework and how it can be used by advertisers in their campaigns. This incorporation of AI in social mediahelps brands compete. While this technology helps by offering tagging suggestions for the identification of friends in posted photos, it also can be used to offer discounts or free samples of products.
Because AI streamlines and hawk-eyes the purchase patterns and interests of its users, it can deliver adverts that cater to the online social presence of the user.
