<p><strong>A trial of the effectiveness of an AI Chabot (powered by <a href="http://Chatfuel.com" rel="nofollow">Chatfuel.com</a>) as a form of participant recruitment through the Facebook messenger platform.</strong></p> <p>The primary goal of using the Facebook messenger AI Chat bot is to increase the diversity of the participants in our studies. In general, we use the University of Chester Research Participation System (RPS/SONA systems). This system is a pool of undergraduate and postgraduate psychology students. This is good in terms of having a sample of participants available to complete your online survey. However, there is a bias in that the majority of the sample tend to be White British Females of around 18-20 years old. While this may not influence the overall study, it would be beneficial to include a range of ages and more diverse participants. Using Facebook messenger as a public domain advertisement, it is hoped that the general public will engage with the bot and thereby, take part in the research. </p> <p>A secondary advantage of using the chat bot is that those who agree, may be contacted again in the future when another study is available to them. Further to this, people tend to enjoy interacting over Facebook messenger and are more likely to interact and engage as opposed to an email or a poster. As the use of Facebook messenger is common place, it is a safe environment in which people feel comfortable interacting. After all, it is the same place you use to contact friends and family. It would be rare to find people that interact mainly through emails and posters. </p> <p>This trial is running through the course of ““What did you do that for?” – A study of intentions. - Knobe (2003) Replication Study” available to view here: <a href="http://osf.io/8h9aw" rel="nofollow">osf.io/8h9aw</a> </p> <p>Kennedy, B.
