Natural language processing (NLP) is about developing applications and services that are able to understand human languages. Some Practical examples of NLP are speech recognition for eg: google voice search, understanding what the content is about or sentiment analysis etc.
These are some of the successful implementations of Natural Language Processing (NLP):
Search engines like Google, Yahoo, etc. Google search engine understands that you are a tech guy so it shows you results related to you.
Social websites feed like the Facebook news feed. The news feed algorithm understands your interests using natural language processing and shows you related Ads and posts more likely than other posts.

There are many companies gathering all of these data for understanding users and their passions and give these reports to the companies to adjust their plans.
Suppose a person loves traveling and is regularly searching for a holiday destination, the searches made by the user is used to provide him with relative advertisements by online hotel and flight booking apps.
