The Worst Kind of Facebook Tag Spam

EDIT: They removed my name. Such an odd campaign! Who cares about my opinion on shoes? Di naman ako fashionista (Magaling lang magdala – LOL!).

Spamming Facebook walls is one thing. But mentioning your name to quote you on a manufactured opinion is just the worst thing you can ever do. Grabe, bastos!

Putting words in your mouth, eh? I wonder who came up with that crazy Facebook campaign. I agree: to tag you in a post or image is one thing, but to actually use your name and supposedly quoting you about their product is another thing entirely.

They removed the name, but did they apologize? If they apologized, did they do it publicly?
