I joined this forum back in 08 when I moved to Poland and contributed productively to this forum since (though I don't come around much these days.). I understand the reaction from some of you that think it's scandalous and sleezy to have fake profiles to do 'marketing' but it's just a fact of internet life, I never thought it was very effective but this latest venture has been great, it's all just advertising.
As for me getting a life...please don't allow your lack of information about what I actually do, make a troll of you.
I'll be honest that I could care less about the terms and conditions when it comes to doing something that hurts no one. The terms and conditions are violated every day by almost every active Facebook user.
People accepting friend requests from strangers is strange to me too, I don't do it myself, but I've come to learn that MANY people do this, especially when it's from a pretty girl (male and female).
Through one profile I've made I've been able to facebook friend influential local politicians, conservative radio pundits with huge social media reach, and have them respond to blog posts on social issues via the fake profile. That's pretty amazing, it wouldn't have happened had I friend requested them from a male account.
Maybe your little experiment (OP) says that Polish people are using facebook properly, unlike you who is playing the system.
You're absolutely right, I wasn't complaining about it, but I was surely surprised by the completely different mentality of polish users. You are also right that I am playing the system, but this is simply one of many 'marketing' tactics used on all of us on a daily basis.
