Lessons from Expedia's Facebook chatbot
Expedia's Facebook Messenger chatbot was intended to help consumers book travel, but users have instead tapped it for customer service. Expedia's Scott Crawford explains how the experience is shaping the brand's bot strategy, saying "this is the beginning of the journey for us, and we will continually learn and innovate, but we see a huge opportunity for bots in the travel experience."

Songbirds are monogamous by nature, but urban development can be harmful to the nesting success of bird species that migrate farther to avoid human infrastructure, according to a study.
