|GO check out Najib's followers|
A recent check using Fake Follower Check showed a whopping 70 per cent of Prime Minister Najib’s 1.41 million followers were fake. - MELDMAGAZINE
The above was Najib Razak's achievement in microblogging site Twitter. What about Facebook?
We have seen a lot of comments on Najib's FB with #RespectMyPM hashtag. Many tend to dismiss them as comments posted by fake accounts to create the impression that PM has a lot of support among the youth.
But how do we know for sure? Read more to have your doubts cleared.
Take this posting:
Just take a random comment... in this case someone called Hanis Hanisa. It seems that she created the account in the middle of May this year. And her profile picture looks sweet enough.
Do a bit more ground work, and you'd realise that she's actually a pretty lass, said to be from Terengganu who's got over 123,000 followers on Instagram under @adirasalahudi. The picture used as "Hanis Hanisa's" profile photo on FB originated from here, which already has over 2,000 likes on Instagram.
Ok, jom survey gambar lain pulak. Tengok gambar ni.
Kau rasa handbag Helen Clark lagi mahal ke, Rosmah punya lagi mahal? Eh, itu trick question! Kau tengok seorang lagi bernama Daniel Xixii komen #RespectMyPM
The person bearing that image is actually Hasan Santiago. That picture was sourced from Myspace (social media platform long dead now) and the dude lived in Brooklyn, New York, not Kajang as what Daniel Xixii claimed.
Let's look at the third posting below:
This chap goes by Amar Amri. If you can't see his FB profile picture, click here. But hold on.... perhaps this guy's actual name is Syafiq Syazwan and has a Twitter account here. Either Syafiq or Amar has a split personality or one person is taking another's profile picture without permission.
Seemingly, Amar's FB account was created in April this year... and the best part was, look what he posted on 26 April:
Is Amar Amri / Panglima Cyber Bugis / Anak Buah Mat Maslan trying to drop us some clues? Someone should also teach him how to spell swear words correctly.
Almost all the highly questionable FB profiles have been set to restricted public access ie if you are not friends with him / her, you can't see their postings. Which is kinda uncharacteristic of young people these days as they crave for attention, even from strangers. Most people from that age group would open up their FB accounts for the world to see.
The list of fake accounts go on and on and on. But I guess the few examples above suffice to conclude that, YES, the most powerful man in Malaysia is being propped up via fake Facebook accounts.
Selamat menyambut bulan yang mulia!
Note: Najib's fake FB dwellings were researched and submitted here by reader Zianah Zain following the Australian magazine's expose of the Malaysian Prime Minister's fake Twitter followers.
I doubt such cheapskate propaganda and manipulation stops at Twitter and Facebook. We should keep an eye on the voters registry as well.
p/s Thank you Zianah Zain. How to #RespectMyPM lah kalau menyangak macam ni?
