Well it seems that the far right group known as Britain First aren’t putting Britain first. Facebook is a bigger priority.
Some of my friends ‘Liked’ photos of theirs, and when I asked them why, they said they didn’t even know what Britain First was and just happened to have seen the post. So it all made sense.
Britain First is disguising its posts with messages that people can ‘Like’ and ‘Share’, hence people can just see its posts more. It’s marketing.
And because there are so many people on Facebook who share everything without questioning, Britain First is able to reach out. The admin on Facebook is not even trying at times – begging ‘Share me share me!’
One may ask me: “So what if Britain First has thousands of followers, and so what if a photo gets shared?” Well I say that promoting a far right group that deserves no positive attention is doing harm. All those photos are just a ploy to get you engaged so Britain First can achieve its political ambitions.
Also, why should you have to prove you support the troops by sharing a photo on your wall? Why should you prove yourself by doing something some random Facebook page tells you to?
So if you stumble on a Facebook post, make sure you see who is sharing it and don’t be a sucker.
