Most Malaysian politicos think social media outreach is spamming the same boring slogan, sex expose or mindless pantun-like pitch to their own followers / bloggers.
Then some made it a social media SOP, asking for a link or re-tweets to cover more miles… (how to extend to fence sitters voters, la? When their readers are within their little circle only?)
Recently, launch of recruitment of naivete volunteers on le rebranded cyberteam was done. (pat, pats on the backs, congratulated each other)
Oi, how to sell la when your own ‘established’ cybertroopers oops, cyber team are incapable to produce convincing messages to get buy-in from people who might be able to be tempted to find out more?
Most cyber troopers think that social media is all about agitatement, “who best agitate others wins”. And, then get agitated themselves when being asked hard questions.
Duh, if you’re afraid of what people are going to say, then maybe you should focus on straightening yourselves out first.
Like, do get yourselves trained by a social media specialist, ok?
