Let's delve into the inner workings of no-doubt troll-created BBM and Facebook status spammys.
What are the best/worst you've ever seen? There are some really funny ones out there.
The next topic I will address is the "Photograph with inspirational message" phase that most women over the age of 35 seem to indulge in.
I've tried to create a hybrid, it's an ugly stupid beast of a status spammy but here goes...
Let's break it down now:
"Would you do me a favour and post this as your status for one hour?..." (Notice the personalisation here, works every time *not really but anyway*)
"...If you believe that everyone should reach their dream..." (Keep it random and open ended, emotional status copiers love this, they'll be like 'sob!' 'sniff!' "Let me help someone reach a dream by posting this kak status!")
"...Then repost this..." (Obvious reiteration here, remind them why they're even reading this kak status.)
"...Make sure you post it on my wall..." (Yes, Facebook friend, I have the time to do all that and still post it on your wall. Gotcha. Sure thing. See you there.)
"...I already know who will..." (Peer pressure at its brightest, friends will think "ohmaigah! She'll just know I didn't do it!")
"...If you don't repost..." (See the change in tone here? It's the twist in the tale, er, in the kak status.)
"...Then giant llamas will sit on your face, and a child with a mild hernia will die..." (Let's just be creative here, why not? If they're still reading they might just copy paste...)
"...You have 42 seconds to repost this (More randoms, adding random time frames seems to be a winner, it shows that your kak status is legit. For reals. They skrik because it's taken them 20 seconds to read it so time is min.)
"...Just do it and see who will give you money..." (Adding a money hook always works. Heck. I love money.)
Let's keep the spam coming. No, really. Stoppit.
Here it is if you'd like to try it out on FB or BBM :o) Lol!
"Would you do me a favour and post this as your status for one hour? If you believe that everyone should reach their dream...Then repost this. Make sure you post it on my wall, I already know who will... If you don't repost, Then giant llamas will sit on your face, and a child with a mild hernia will die. You have 42 seconds to repost this.
