Facebook Sees Its Future In Chatbots, Live Video

Facebook users may soon see a couple of significant changes to their social media experience. The company holds its annual developer conference, F8, in San Francisco on Tuesday and is expected to discuss two new products: Facebook Live and chatbots.

Both products are becoming more common on Twitter and several smaller messaging apps, but with Facebook’s 1.5 billion users, many more people are about to become familiar with them.

Kurt Wagner of Re/code talks to Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson about how these products could change social media and provide a new revenue stream for the technology giant.
