Facebook Gives Workers a Chatbot to Appease That Prying Uncle (nytimes.com)

This bot is an inside-company joke right? I can't believe that they'd spend time building this rather than just trusting their very intelligent employees to be able to answer those hard questions themselves.

If these employees can't answer these questions adequately, there are several implications, but I don't think the response of the company should ever seriously be "Just give them a bot that spits out PR-department talking points".
