    Have you guys heard of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/50_Cent_Party ?

    Basicaly It's an army of chineses that are paid to defend the Chinese Government on the web.

    I guess that there are many business doing that too for:

    - self-promotion through "covert persuasion"
    - talk shit about their competition

    What are your thoughts on this. Does someone already hired people to do that kind of stuff on social media sites and forums? :rolleyes:

    I think it's awesome - it's reputation management at it's highest form...
