    It looks like review spammers are using ChatGPT and other AI tools to generate fake reviews. These reviews are being posted in Google Business Profile local listings and causing a headache for small businesses.

    Microsoft may share the ad revenue it generates through the Bing Chat responses with some publishers it obtains that content from. Yusuf Mehdi from Microsoft wrote, "exploring placing ads in the chat experience to share the ad revenue with partners whose content contributed to the chat response."
  • Google Ads Removed 53% More Ads This Year - 5.2 Billion Ads Blocked

  • Bing Chat To Ultimately Remove Chat Limits
    Right now you cannot sit all day and ask Bing Chat questions, no matter how lonely you are, at some point, Bing will say to give it a break. But those limits, one day, will be removed and you will be able to talk to Bing Chat all day and all night, if you so desire.
