Too nice to be true? Everyone on social media apparently loves Stephen Harper!

Too nice to be true? Everyone on social media apparently loves Stephen Harper!


Sep 08, 2015

Earlier today, Prime Minister Stephen Harper took to Facebook for a chat with Canadians about the future of the country. People somehow were able to pull themselves from Farmville for a few minutes to participate, but CTV reporter Katie Simpson noticed something very particular about the comments.

Now, that’s not to say that those comments aren’t true. But it’s strange that on a day when it’s been revealed the Conservatives are third place in the polls, that not a single person has a bad thing to say about the PM.

Now I’m sure somewhere there’s someone advising them that no one will notice the only positive comments, but that person needs to be fired.

As someone who also teaches and consults companies about social media, I actually would have told Harper to stay away from a Facebook chat, but if he wanted to do it, then I would have left the comments and tried replying to them. That would certainly generate most positive media than simply either faking comments or deleting them altogether.

If I had to weigh in on the election, I’d say social media will be the downfall of the Conservatives. Years ago, they’d be able to control the narrative a bit because there was only the news papers and television stations to worry about, but now politicians have those things plus social media to worry about. And when it comes to social media, if certain accounts don’t want a story to die, they can just keep posting it.

But this isn’t the first time Stephen Harper’s social media has seemed a bit suspicious. Last week, his sponsored Instagram post was filled with comments so nice, you’d think they were talking about someone as beloved as Sandra Bullock.
