Welcome to the Connected Church News!
This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 1, Oct 2023) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
Snapchat has announced that they are going to monetize the My AI chatbot by introducing sponsored link in partnership with Microsoft Advertising. When you chat with your My AI chatbot, and ask it questions and it responds based on the conversation, they will start showing you sponsored links, which will help people promote their products and services. My AI is one of the most used AI chatbots. According to the company, they have 150 million users who have so far generated more than 10 billion conversations. As a nonprofit, church or ministry, if you are looking to minister to a demographic that uses Snapchat and uses My AI within Snapchat, then this might be a good advertising opportunity for you. We’ll have to wait and watch how it takes off because a chat is usually a very personal, interactive experience. Having ads inside that has to be done very well. So we’ll just wait and see how this goes.
