Click to visit these silly people

Like the boss who wants to hang out with you on a Saturday, corporate Facebook brand pages can get a little weird. What’s with all the personal questions? And please stop asking me if I like you.

Which is why it’s hard to believe that it took till now for someone to create Condescending Corporate Brand Page, a pitch-perfect mockery of every desperate advertiser’s milquetoast attempt to be your social media pal.

“We’re a big corporate brand using Facebook,” reads the page’s description. “So look out for us asking you to like and share our stuff in a faintly embarrassing and awkward way.”

On Thursday morning, the page greeted its fans with a picture of a black man’s hand shaking a white man’s hand. “If you don’t click on this post,” read the text, “we’ll assume you’re a racist…”

The joke has now extended to Twitter as well. On Thursday, the site launched Twitter.com/Corporate_Brand, which, according to its description, intends to tailor the mockery to the platform…

And of course, this being social media, fans of the page get to contribute.

“Wow. I just felt like I absolutely had to engage with you guys and let you know how great your brand page is!” wrote one fan. “Knowing how engaged I am right now, I was also wondering if there was a way I could spend more at yourcondescendingstores?“

Good wry chuckle for a Sunday morning.

    I hate Facekook and Twittledum.
    They are contributing to the downfall of humanity.

    Their “pick up lines” need work!

    The most annoying phrase now is “Like us on Facebook”.

    I think its time to start the first anti-social social network.

  6. bobbo, pontificating like nobody's business says:

    I’m finding more and more articles and videos I want to read must log onto Facedbooks first. That ain’t right. The Rule of Fewest Clicks should be made the law.

    Yes, I’m a liberal, and I want laws to control the excesses of corporations in an otherwise free market.

    Yea, verily.

      I agree.
      I also refuse to visit or post on any blogs/forums/comments that require me to use a Facekook account to log in and comment.
