People are Photoshopping “Likes for Free Stuff” Conversations with Brands

A few days ago we wrote about how people should stop asking for free stuff in exchange for Likes, Comments, and Shares. Apparently we have to call out another practice related to that. Some people are desperate for attention that they’re photoshopping fake conversations with brands like the one below.

Uh… I know that whoever made that fake conversation was just having fun. However you have to realize several things. First you’re at legal risk. You’re infringing the IP rights of the brand by creating and posting stuff like that. Two, when you get busted that it’s fake (like what just happened), you end up looking incredibly uh… desperate for attention.

Anyway, if you guys see posts like this pop up on your feed, just be informed that there’s a big chance that the conversation you’re saying is fake. Don’t like, share, or comment on it because you’re really just adding on to and passing on the stupidity. ^^;
