[Comments] Case: Fans Also Love Telling The Good Brand Stories
Any kind of post or comment doesn’t just disappear by itself. Often, we just let the bad things outshine the good things as one negative comment equals the ten positive comments we were just given. Since last Wednesday, it has received 500,000 likes and 22,000 comments. The reason why this exact case turned into such a storm of positive comments from fans is first of all down to the touching story that many people can relate to. Building a presence in social media can be terrifying for many brands. This is what all brands fear in social media. We are home.

Too many approved comments were coming through as ham despite being spam. -- Thank you for reading Mollom and You: Mind Adding a Comment Please?
