I can see this as a legitimate service for companies who want to do away with paying people to be on social media all day. A few companies that I worked for actually saw social media as a 'play house' and for kids and people not srs bsns. Some of them have changed their ways, but at least one of them only has one person devoted to actually monitoring/responding to social media items and maybe a few people who 'get to it when they can.'

Stratified upper management with outmoded ideas of what businesses do online  are often to blame.

If this becomes a thing, I predict it will become the next "Automated call in technical support" line. Everyone will hate it. Including businesses when it starts accidentally creeping into its users less, shall we say, savory activities online and start responding like a human without a brain/mouth filter. IE, like Youtube commenters.

You act as if gmail is the end all be all of email. There's more than enough free email services out there that work just as well and have plenty of storage. To be honest the one time I tried Gmail I didn't like it, but at the time Gmail came out I'd been using using hotmail and yahoo mail for almost a decade and there was no reason to switch since I never needed the extra space that was about the only thing Gmail had going for it when it first came out.

Yahoo:  Security of a wet paper bag, poor spam controls, no way to turn off pop and rivals aol as a fatal domain name to see on a resume.  Oh and the web interface is ass and the company itself is circling the drain so expect they'll sell you out to places like linkedin to keep floating.
Hotmail:  Being deprecated for outlook.com and carries an even worse social stygma.
