Like? What’s not to like? Likes for everyone!

I’ve been thinking about Facebook Likes lately.



Here’s the blog’s Facebook page.  And it has 483 likes.

And here is David Shearer’s:


Even though David won’t be with us for much longer, he’s still got a very nice 6,849 Facebook likes.

Well done David.

And here is the Facebook page of the Green Taliban



So there we are.


Me: 500.  Shearer: 7,000.  Green Taliban: 30,000.

Does that look about right?  In proportion?

So here’s the question that’s been on my mind.  How does a Pakeha Party achieve this, and so quickly?




Well, if you want to have a lots of Facebook Likes, and you want them quickly, you just buy them.




Now, in case you think I’m drawing a long bow here.  It happens all the time:



Have a think about it.

Whaleoil: 500.

Shearer: 7,000.

Green Taliban: 30,000.

The Pakeha Party: 57,000.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
