ChatGPT, A Social Media Warrior?
Using ChatGPT as a Powerful Social Media Tool

Artificial intelligence (AI) and chatbots have changed the social media dynamics, especially with businesses relying more on AI to do most of the work for them. One such fiction-come-true AI platform that is currently making headlines in the market is ChatGPT and GoogleBard.

With just a few lines of commands, ChatGPT performs a wide range of tasks, a capability attributed to its dense neural network consisting of over 175 billion parameters and incredible Natural Language Processing (NLP) abilities. ChatGPT’s rising popularity in the industry has even pushed Google into developing and releasing its own AI-powered chatbot, Google Bard AI—which speaks volumes.

While professionals from various industries have started using it for various purposes, Chat GPT has proven to be extremely useful for marketers while performing various tasks such as SEO, content writing, keyword research, and other marketing-related activities including social media.

How does ChatGPT play a role in social media marketing?

ChatGPT used reinforcement learning from Human Feedback (RLHF) to train and learn to generate responses tailored to the user’s input. Having quickly gained a reputation for its conversational human-like answers, it can be used for a range of customer service tasks including:

  • Responding to FAQs
  • Assisting with navigation for website or app visitors
  • Text translation
  • Data collection
  • Summarizing lengthy articles
  • Generating engaging marketing copy
  • Coding support
  • Acquiring insights from user feedback and surveys
  • Carrying out social media interactions
  • Generating conversation prompts and more

Social media marketers can even take ChatGPT’s assistance in write engaging captions for the brand’s social media, blog posts, product descriptions, email campaigns, and YouTube and podcast scripts. Additionally, ChatGPT can be used for –

  • Creating content calendars
  • Finding relevant hashtags and keywords
  • Responding to comments
  • Finding relevant influencers for collaborations
  • Advertising

These lists aren’t all encompassing and barely scratch the surface when we zoom out and focus on the full scope of ChatGPT in social media marketing.

Make the most out of ChatGPT

To get high-quality and relevant content from ChatGPT, one must ask the right questions and provide the right information. Here are some helpful tips that will help make the best use of the AI chatbot:

  1. Be specific and provide enough information.
  2. Use the right language (business or industry-relevant terminologies).
  3. Maintain consistency in language and tone across all your communications for consistency in content style.
  4. Provide examples of the type of content you’re looking for.
  5. Be open-minded to suggestions that could be effective.
  6. Test different inputs and request revisions.
  7. Make use of its additional features, like controlling the language, tone, and sentiment, to fine-tune the responses to your needs.
  8. Provide all relevant information and context for specific, tailored content.

Potential challenges using ChatGPT for social media

It’s important to remember that despite its noteworthy capabilities and huge potential in the social media market, ChatGPT is still a very new tool in the market. The training process is ongoing as it continues to learn more and more from user feedback. Digital marketers might face certain challenges while using this AI platform including:

  • Incorrect information: Some of the responses of ChatGPT, although plausible-sounding, may be sometimes incorrect. Because it learns from the internet, information can be unreliable and with no source of truth during RL training, which can pose a challenge. You may be thinking, “What if it is trained to be more cautious?” In this case, there is a high chance of it declining questions that it can answer correctly. Additionally, supervised training by human demonstrators doesn’t make sense, as it should be more about what the model knows.
  • Sensitive to changes in input: As noted previously, slightly tweaking the input may change the response of ChatGPT, and this inconsistency might sometimes confuse the model into claiming that it doesn’t know the answer.
  • Does not ask clarifying questions: Asking clarifying questions is ideal, but the current ChatGPT model takes a guess when faced with an ambiguous query.
  • Bias issue: ChatGPT can be extremely verbose as a result of over-optimization and biased training data; certain phrases are excessively used. This may clearly prove to be a problem for marketers during social media content creation.

All things considered, ChatGPT is an incredibly powerful and helpful tool for digital marketers who are looking for new ways to optimize their social media marketing initiatives through engaging content and improved customer relationships. Its understanding of and response to natural language makes social media management much more efficient and effective.
