Fanbots - bots in the music and entertainment industry

Bots are commonly used in e-commerce, education and travel industries, but also have great potential in other industries, such as music and entertainment.

Music and entertainment artists need a way to connect with their fans on the web, mobile, and through social media. Many famous entertainers and musicians are good at using social media to promote themselves and keep their fans up to date. Up until now social media has been mainly one-way communication, as it is not possible for an artists to connect directly with millions of fans. Now, with most social media platforms supporting bots, it is now possible for an artists to connect directly with all of their fans.

An artists can create a bot for themselves, or for their band, or brand. They can connect the bot to social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, Kik, and others. The bot can be trained directly by the artist, or through their agent or a service, to answer common questions from fans, quote their lyrics, or provides audio samples of their music.

An example of bots used in the music industry is Deathbot. On October 10th Deathbot took over the bands Avenged Sevenfold's website to promote their upcoming single. Deathbot was hosted on Bot Libre. Bot Libre made it easy for the bot to be trained to answer fan questions without any requiring any programming, and Bot Libre's animated avatar support helped the bot engage fans on the web.
