Saw this as well. Why is this on pics and on the frontpage There's nothing else to it, it's literally an ad.
I don't care how much people love the brand, this is definitely vote manipulation and Redditors are unsurprisingly willingly blind to it. I've seen so many comments with ppl rolling their eyes at /sub/hailcorporate lately. Meanwhile, there are companies that are literally selling front page posts and ppl act like it's not happening.
Too bad this is one of the handful of companies Redditors allow to openly shill.
They also sell waters for a very reasonable price, everyone!
Now there I disagree with you. It's just like my personal opinion, man but advertisements are way too present in films we pay to watch, and the internet, which we pay for.
And yet if you send their shitty food to starving Ethiopian, they'll send it back.
I do think it's kinda funny though.
Probably cause it's a good piece of advertisement/press that isint harming anyone which this sub wouldn't be able to tell if it hit them in the face.
i mean it DOES blend in. whats he gonna do photoshop the logo out? its right in the middle of the case
It doesn’t even say the company name. I have no idea what company that is. You’re reaching here. But that’s usually what this sub is.
My new game since I discovered this sub is to check it everytime I see some post that could fit and guess if it's on the front page or not. That one sure did deliver!
I'm flattered that you think it's an ad, but I'm OP, and can assure you it's not. I would much rather be making marketing money and not public school teacher money.
I don’t really see this as an ad but more like the endless jerking off of rocket Jesus
Not really, if the infrastructure, batteries and solar cells are own by municipalities. I've not read that Tesla are going to do this as a freebie.
Wouldn't it just be solar power? Tesla isn't providing the actual power
Nobody calls it baja blast mountain dew. Its just baja blast. Thats what convinced me this was an ad. Then the first hastag made me cringe.
There's no reason this would be #1 on /sub/all unless it was an ad.
Major corporations don't manipulate reddit = you're delusional.
it's an ad even if it got only 10 upvotes. every first letter in taco bell product names were capitalized. of course, they probably bought at least 500 upvotes to give it a boost
the specific thread I'm referring to in the title: https://www.reddit.com/sub/GalaxyS8/comments/6grgqq/debunking_the_s8_pink_tint_issue_why_the_tech/
just go through the user's posts and comments and they're almost all trying to promote the brand. sort the posts by controversial for the best stuff :')
Looked through his comments and posts, needless to say, gr8 post m8.
Gr8 post m8, so much h8 from s8 shill
So... how much does shilling pay these days?
Almost seems like Apple bought the ad space, Reddit has become such a joke.
The people updating the live thread need to calm the hell down.
Let the guy finish his sentence, then compile that information into a single post. I don't need a new separate post each time the guy says any sort of spec, price, trendy buzzword, or whimsical adjective. It defeats the purpose of a live thread if it's clogged up with a disorganized clutter of irrelevant spam.
You hear that, Apple? Your Reddit shills are totally blowing it.
Hmmm ... millions of people want to see it... so they show it. What a bunch of sell-outs!!
All posts about this are being removed...
I don't see why it's so hard to accept that this sub is concerned with the way advertising/marketing has infiltrated our everyday social interactions, and not just with calling out suspected shill accounts.
Someone seems to be deleting the bot posts
No. You know what? Just go away.
There were a lot of comments like this.
I disagree. I don't support over-regulation, but Net Neutrality is to me (at its core) a necessary regulation to protect the free and open Internet we enjoy presently. At least in terms of ISP meddling. FCC may not be the right entity to enforce this regulation, but if not them Congress should pass a law that's focused on the core >issue, as in if you pay to access the Internet at a particular quality of service, you should be able to access all resources on the net at that quality of service. In my opinion Net Neutrality alone this isn't an overreach of government, it's a protection against future bad behavior by ISPs.
Imagine how this last election would have gone if the left-leaning social media sites had more freedom to censor the Trump supporters. Getting rid of NN is NOT the right answer.
/edit just pointing out that even over at the T_D where dissent is ruthlessly crushed there was considerable dissent.
Seems like they unstickied it, and deleted a ton of comments accusing OP of shilling.
I have never upvoted so many Trump supporters in my life.
As of right now, all the top comments are for net neutrality
How many socks do you have to sell to buy 200 upvotes? Is there a standard exchange rate on the black market or something
And a /sub/bestof post with ~500 upvoted made by himself. Disgusting.
The front page is a sellout, but it's hard to avoid it. I don't think reddit has ever come out about the obvious vote manipulation though?
