This Bot Will Help You Decide What's For Dinner

This Bot Will Help You Decide What's For Dinner
From Lifehacker - September 16, 2017

If youve ever tried cooking dinner for a group, you know that coming up with something that everyone is excited about can be a bit of a challenge. Dinners at my house typically involve one person coming up with three things they would enjoy eating, and then the other person (or persons, depending on the night) choosing what they would prefer from those options.

Its not a perfect solution. There are certainly times where person number two ends up eating a dinner that theyre not exactly stoked about, but it is a quick and dirty way to make a dinner decision that everyone has some sort of input in.

This week, The Food Network added a new feature to its Facebook bot called Meal Match. The press release they sent me joked that users could swipe right on their dinner decisions. I laughed at the idea at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I think its actually kind of brilliant.

To play, you just need to Like Food Network on Facebook (Click Unfollow when you do if you dont want to see daily posts from them), and then message the page with the phrase Play Meal Match. The bot will respond and launch the game.
