How do you get one million likes on Facebook?
- Pick a subject that polarises people such as politics or religion
- Make an inflammatory statement
- Sit back and let it happen
A Facebook post from “Meanwhile in Australia“, was posted on 8 May calling for the Prime Minister, Julia Gillard to resign if they got 1 Million likes. Well they are far from 1 Million, but in less than three weeks they’ve managed to get 91k likes, 3.7K comments and over 4k shares.
I showed this to my wife last night (who leans to the left politically) and she said jokingly, “Well anybody that likes that is an idiot”…Yep as I said polarising!
