Google may soon offer an assistant that will help those too busy to manage their social network accounts. The internet giant has reportedly patented a technology that can analyze how a user reacts or responds to feeds and messages on social media. Once the technology finishes analyzing, it can also post personalized responses for the user. Is this something worth looking out for?

Imagine being away for some time with friends and families contacting over social networking sites. The social networking bot can post on these sites and recommended responses similar to the actual user. People can choose to have the bot manage their accounts so they do not have to exert time and effort updating their Facebook accounts and other sites.

According to reports, Google has just patented a method that can generate personalized reactions. Through this mechanism, the computer system will initially gather data on the user's interactions via social networking sites. The interface will then label and rank the responses or interactions of the person. This will help identify the pattern of responses in order to generate similar ones.

The system will also identify if the user's post can pass the categories such as interesting or important to the user. After ranking and assigning value to the data, the system will generate and suggest personalized responses. The user can choose to go with them or not.

For instance, the system can also recommend a set of reactions of responses depending on the person's change of recent jobs. IPBrief cites a sample responses the Google social networking bot can do: "Hey David, I am fine, [y]ou were in ABC corp for 3 years and you recently moved to XYZ corp, how do you feel about the difference, enjoying your new workplace?"

The patented method, like other technologies, still needs to have refinements or improvements. The system cannot differentiate whether an event is important to a person or not. The interface simply appoints which it thinks is important. Google still needs to work on this. Some analysts think there will be a mixed responses from the market as some people may not like the idea of a bot acting like them.
