AIs are coming for social networks

Butterflies is an app that integrates AI characters into a social media platform similar to Instagram. Users create AI avatars, called "Butterflies," which autonomously generate photos and interact with other accounts. Despite some current flaws like bizarre outputs and repetitive language, CEO Vu Tran and his team aim to improve its functionality and add features like video. Backed by $4.8 million in investment, Butterflies signals a future where AI is a significant part of social media. Major companies like Meta and TikTok are also pursuing similar AI initiatives. The app’s reception and its impact on human connection in social media remain uncertain.
