In the modern era we live in today, social media has become an avenue for online trends – be it a funny meme of a politician or another crazy challenge. These viral posts have shaped what many of us understand and call the “meme culture.” And recently, a series of famous convenience stores and shops are making rounds on Facebook, as online users dubbed this latest trend as “shitposting” pages. These fanmade accounts post hilarious comments and photos of their competitors to throw shade at them.
For instance, this post from the 7-eleven Dasmarinas Universe page garnered more than 55,000 comments and 68,000 shares. This was followed by satirical comments and responses from other troll pages of business establishments.
The admin told InqPOP! that their purpose for creating the account is for fun and entertainment purposes only.
“Gumagawa lang naman kami ng katuwaan in this page kaysa manira kami ng tao at religion na nauuso ngayon.” (We only engage in fun on this page. We’d rather do that than insult people and their choice of religion–which happens quite often these days.)
Tell us in the comments below, what do you think about this new trend?
