It's from a few days ago so maybe you've all seen it already but thought some of this was pretty amusing...
*the concept of 'social media managers'
*companies being chummy in an effort to 'do an Innocent'
Though I guess its no-ones fault because buzzfeed is run by bored proper journalists for bored people who don't like proper journalism.
it is pretty much content that writes itself and will one day probably write itself
there are already bots creating automated social media content on twitter or w/e so the next step is for bots to create content about automated content
personally i cant wait
in the office of some 'online PR' venture.
shit banter using fake accounts. i'll go to the football thread for that.
now writing stupid tweets for horrible companies
especially when you're trying to put people down. I always imagine it coming from the mouth of the "bitch" character in an American teen movie. Always imagine you accompanying it with a few finger snaps and a sassy flick of the hair. Aren't you in your early 30s?
You know, this is DiS, everyone rags on each other all of the time. I JUST WANT TO FIT IN OKAY
Apart from really liking Morrissey I think you're pretty swell.
i apologise too. I had thought that you had been constantly sniping at me for a while though now you mention it they were probably all to do with Morrissey (Which is still inexcusable really).
Think thats my first ever apology on here.
TESCO QUALIFIED (Tw, FB, LiIn, MyS) SOCIAL MEDIA CO-ORDINATION SUPER-MANAGER: (coming in through the door to his mansion) I got a bonus for pissing about with my chums at Cadbury's and Yorkshire Tea. How was your day, son?
LAD ON WELFARE: I'm pooped after doing unpaid Workfare work for my benefits. I'm going to go and have a shit
TESCO QUALIFIED (Tw, FB, LiIn, MyS) SOCIAL MEDIA CO-ORDINATION SUPER-MANAGER: Great idea! I instagrammed one of my steamers and shares went up by 6.7 percent for this quarter! That's the aspirational spirit, lad! Maybe if you actually put a bit of work in, you can get a proper job like mine where you can earn big money based on your contributions to society rather than for sitting on your arse on your bloody mobile phone all the time
M-B: I'm still getting into the hang of doing my heavy-handed post-satire on New DiS. I'm not even sure how much of this is representative of my views. Consider this whole unconfidence a further satirical comment on some of the technical issues that have been going on on the new boards. Anyway... I thought while I'm here... instead of just taking the piss and stuff, I'd actually suggest a workable solution to all of society's problems that can benefit everyone. So here goes nothing...
someone would put their MySpace qualification at the end of your name.
You'd get no respect at the Social Media meet ups if that was on your business card.
It's all about eurgh. Although I like Betfair Poker.
A friend of mine earns over twice my salary doing it. He was doing it for Big Yellow Storage at one point, ffs.
just moved from one company to another as well. Love you all too! <3
rather than 'good'. As I said, this is my job, and this would be fun to be a part of - more interesting than your average day. Wouldn't find enjoyment from it not being involved though.
(Although I personally like seeing the more human side of people in charge of these things, rather than robotic people who aren't allowed personality and are dealing with whiney people on social media all day and just hate their job.)
