‘Condescending Corporate Brand Page’ Wants To Engage With You On Facebook

A Facebook page entitled ‘Condescending Corporate Brand Page’ pitch-perfectly mocks companies that have no idea how to use social media.

It humorously encapsulates exactly how boring corporate brands use Facebook to beg for ‘Likes’ and ‘Shares’, by using: ‘engaging content’, semi-inspirational quotes, and stock photos of animals or children.

“We’re a big corporate brand using Facebook,” the page’s description writes, “So look out for us asking you to like and share our stuff in a faintly embarrassing and awkward way.”

The page is run anonymously and has, thus far, amassed 9,281 ‘Likes’.

It also has a Twitter account to post tweets from the Facebook page.

With just as much wit, the Twitter account’s description reads: “This is the twitter account that simply tweets from a linked Facebook page with an annoying ‘on.fb.me’ link at the end chopping off what's said. Point missed.”
