Does Using Artificial Intelligence in Your Replies Make You.. Artificial?

Dana Corriel, MD asks whether using AI in our comment replies, when online, helps us to authentically and meaningfully build relationships.

April 23, 2024

I recently wrote about stepping out of your comfort zone, when creating content, and not relying too heavily on AI generation, or outsourced work.

Here’s another piece of advice that could pertain to more than a few of you, especially as we venture deeper into the foray of AI.

What I see that’s a turn off for many, is when AI is used to respond to others’ posts, in comment sections.

 

(NEW interactive group)
Doctor Side Ventures

Doctors today are doing SO MANY things on the side. Join an exclusive Facebook community (for medical docs, dentists, podiatrists) to discuss everything from publishing, to real estate, to ways we build wealth or satisfy our extracurricular needs (& stay happy).

 

I’m guessing this is the case when you’re not confident enough to reply yourself, are too busy to take the time to authentically respond, or are having someone else respond for you (ie someone is working your comments for you).

I personally don’t love it. And to be quite honest, it doesn’t take me much time to come up with a quick response.

Dustin Karas doesn’t seem to love it, either.

When I tossed this out to my audience, as both a question AND a poll, this investor and co-founder of Pattern weighed in, writing, “Personally, I think people can still recognize AI generated responses. I see them in my feed regularly. I know AI content is getting better, but the last thing you want while networking with people you want to make a connection with is to come across as disingenuous.”

I’d take this a step further, in fact, and say this: the fact that LinkedIn offers this as a paid service is, quite frankly, a big turn off.

Doing this seems to encourage the use of AI, in place of authentic connections, something I personally value, and are drawn to.

If LinkedIn did not offer this as an option in its comment sections, it would be much more tedious for professionals using that platform to actually use AI because they’d need to click into another, separate app, copy and paste in the original post, and then choose a clever response, then copying and pasting it into the post they intend to comment in. Lots of work, and not typically worth that return.

I propose that if LinkedIn turned that option off, it would foster much more meaningful conversations between accounts using that space, and we wouldn’t have to constantly wonder whether people responding to us are authentically engaging or just ticking off a box.
