Earlier this year, hackers broke into the Ashley Madison online dating website, stole all the customer data, and then released it to the public. Names, email addresses, credit card info and other personal information was released to the public. It was such a big story that it made Bing’s top news stories of 2015.

Something very interesting came to light after the hack: the fact that Ashley Madison created tens of thousands of female bots. If you don’t pay attention, a chatbot could fool you. You don’t want to waste your time talking to a chatbot, now do you? The infographic listed below teaches you how to spot and how to avoid falling in love with a chatbot.
