The Ultimate Resource for Your Internet Ambitions Realized


I have some questions for you…

Well, this post is here to help you. No sales pitch. Nothing to buy. Webmaster For Hire offers minimal marketing services to existing clients. However, we are here to educate you about an online technology that is VERY NEW and that by word of mouth has created a massive rush to learn it, use it and teach about it.

This technology is an AI technology called, “ChatGPT”.


What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is a chatbot that uses artificial intelligence to generate responses to messages. It is based on a technology called GPT-3, which stands for “Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3.”

So, what is GPT-3?  It is a type of a machine learning model that can process and understand natural language, allowing it to have conversations with humans in a way that feels more natural and fluid.

ChatGPT can be used in a variety of tasks that we will cover a few of them in this article. It can be accessed through a website or app, and users can simply type in a message and receive a response from the chatbot. Overall, ChatGPT is a useful tool for interacting with artificial intelligence in a conversational way, and it has the potential to greatly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of many different tasks.



How does ChatGPT work?

To use ChatGPT, you can simply go to this website or app that offers the chatbot service. Once there, you can start a conversation by typing in a message (prompts, questions, or requests) and hitting send. ChatGPT will then review the message based on the large amount of data it’s been given to understand natural language and will then generate a response and send it back to you.

You can continue the same conversation (or topic) by typing in additional messages and receiving responses from ChatGPT. As the chatbot continues to interact with users, it will learn and improve its understanding of language and conversation.


The PROS of using ChatGPT:

There are several potential benefits to using ChatGPT:

  1. Efficiency: ChatGPT can handle multiple conversations at once, allowing it to potentially handle a high volume of interactions without requiring additional human staff.
  2. Cost-effectiveness: Using a chatbot like ChatGPT may be more cost-effective than hiring additional human staff to handle customer service or support inquiries.
  3. 24/7 availability: ChatGPT can be available to interact with users at any time, making it convenient for customers who may need assistance outside of normal business hours.
  4. Improved accuracy: ChatGPT can be programmed to provide accurate and consistent information, helping to ensure that users receive consistent and reliable responses.
  5. Personalization: ChatGPT can be programmed to provide personalized responses based on user data, helping to create a more personalized and engaging experience for users.

CONS of using ChatGPT:

There are a few potential drawbacks to using ChatGPT:

  1. Limited understanding: While ChatGPT can understand and generate responses to a wide range of topics and conversations, it may not have the same level of understanding and context as a human. This can sometimes lead to misunderstandings or inappropriate responses.
  2. Lack of empathy: ChatGPT is not capable of feeling emotions, so it may not be able to provide the same level of empathy and understanding as a human customer service representative or support staff.
  3. Potential for bias: ChatGPT is trained on data that is provided to it, and this data may contain biases. As a result, the chatbot may exhibit biases in its responses.
  4. Dependence on technology: Using ChatGPT or other chatbots may lead to a dependence on technology, which could potentially reduce the need for human interaction and create a less personal experience for users.
  5. Security concerns: ChatGPT and other chatbots may be vulnerable to hacking or other security threats, which could potentially expose user data or compromise the chatbot’s functionality.


Additional CONS that ChatGPT didn’t write…

  1. Review & Edit. You do need to still review and edit any articles written by ChatGPT. It may read a little too sterile for your audience.
  2. Daily Limits. The magnitude of people using of ChatGPT is creating issues and they are now setting Daily Limits. https://help.openai.com/en/articles/6825453-chatgpt-release-notes
  3. Features changes. Because they are in BETA version (or as they call it, “Free Research Preview”), they are making updates continually. Features you may like, may go away without notice. For example, I loved the ‘regenerate response’ feature. When you received a response that you didn’t want, you could click this to get a response written differently. That feature is now gone. Luckily, I didn’t create this video last week.
  4. Data Inaccuracies. Still do research to verify the data given is accurate. It can deliver inaccurate information. This means don’t write about topics that you are not aware of or not willing to research the specific data.
  5. Glitchy.  As seen in the “How ChatGPT Works” above, you can see that they’re still having network problems. As stated in the video, I don’t think they thought their technology would be embraced as fast and by as many people as they had. Patience will be required.


Different ways to use ChatGPT

There are integrations that goes beyond this list below. For the sake of ease and getting started with ChatGPT, this article will stick with non-integration tasks that you can use ChatGPT.  We’ll hold off on integrating the ChatGPT’s API for another article.
