Pretty soon our social media feeds could just be robots talking to each other.

Google has patented plans for software that learns how you behave on social networks and can automatically generate suggestions for "personalized" reactions to tweets and Facebook posts.

Originally noted by the BBC, the ostensible goal of the software is to help users keep up and reply to all the interactions they receive, especially critical ones. However, technology like this could be counterproductive; the whole point of social media is to, well, be social, after all.
