Blackberry is all over Facebook
Lately I keep seeing blackberry showing up A LOT in my news feed. Looks like they paid facebook to be a sponsored advertiser. Everytime bb posts a video there's a ton of likes and comments. Going through the comments, it still blows my mind how negative the sentiment is towards bb. Have you guys seen these ads too?

At this point people who are negative are probably just ignorant, refusing to change their views based on the overwhelming evidence for a new contender. People get as upset about tech platforms as they do sports teams, car brands, etc. It's all the same lol.

A negative article on RIM with hundreds of rebuttal comments: Research In Motion: The Party Is Over... Sell Now - Seeking Alpha
A positive article: Could RIM See $20 On BlackBerry 10 Launch? - Seeking Alpha
A negative article with once again many rebuttals: Research In Motion's Stock Surge, And Why It's Not Here To Stay - Seeking Alpha
Those are people who are literally putting their money where their mouth is. So I think it's probably more reasonable to trust their speculation rather than the hordes of people who just repeat the casette tape that is running in their head from the latest iPhone advertisement they happened to see.
"Dana Hidalgo Dobermann Sure. Now y'all come out with a big touch screen. Geez! I just gave up my BB after years of loving it and went to an ifabulousphone. I'd have stayed with BB if you were just a little quicker!!"
Meanwhile they would complain that rim is living in the past if they DIDN'T create a touchscreen phone. A lot of ppl don't know that they are coming out with qwerty versions either.
I wish some of the rim marketing dept would reply to these baseless comments.

Here are some pieces of gold from the comments on Facebook LOL
"A hub, sounds like a windows phone copy that runs android apps."
"Blaclberry? No body for time fo that mannn"
"Nobody" got time fo writing coherent sentences either lol
"My Samsung galaxy note2 already has this. Blackberry is late to the party....AGAIN!!"
Uh... which Note2 do you have?

Blackberry is all over Facebook
I read a comment the other day were someone was talking about a picture were just the static icons were shown.
Something to the effect of "woopty doo , an icon grid just like Apple and Android" "This is why RIM will never win...no innovation"" I don't want another android Apple clone"
I thought wow a lot of people don't know much more about BlackBerry10 than a picture showing the app grid. Can't wait until the 30th when the world will see the true power of BlackBerry10.

I was just going to comment on this myself - a picture of a BB10 screenshot or something similar gets posted on FB by BlackBerry, and BLAM - haters come out of the woodwork, saying BB10 is a poor copy of iOS & Droid, several years too late, don't even know there's gonna be a QWERTY version....and just being plain stupid saying BB can suck their (testicles).
I'm not a big iPhone or Droid fan, but shyt - some of those people really need to get a life. End of the day, if they're so tied into their particular brand of phone that they feel threatened by a new OS or anyone who isn't in their phone's cult...well, they've got issues.

Downright hostile, trashy comments on FB BlackBerry pages/shares.
I wonder if that's a good thing or a bad thing?
I mean, RIM must be trying to generate some social proof and word of mouth. But this FB campaign seems to be giving RIM (poor) word of mouth. People are trashing BlackBerry, slandering the brand.
