Astroturfing, China-Style

Google English: [Review / disassemble] [Review] HKC Q79 explore with one hand sense of freedom – HKC Q79 (QUEST) Unpacking Comment

I had marveled at other forums posts like that. Today, with this post, it dawned on me these posts are astroturfing.

This one is so damn blatant. No regular user would do a stylish background like this for an unboxing post:

That is so obviously staged. And the rest of the photos are so damn good, it’s clearly the work of a professional photographer. So the text has to be from a professional copywriter too.

AnTuTu score fraud, advertorial corruption, and now astroturfing. China is a snake pit of underhanded dealings. No wonder their own tablets don’t sell well domestically!
