I received a page suggestion yesterday to a not so usual Zimba page on Facebook. One that doesn’t hide it’s feelings for G-Tide. It’s called “I Hate G-TIDE Cell Phones”. First I thought well, negative campaigns are not new on Facebook but I’ll just check it out and leave. But then I looked at the number of fans and stopped a bit.
The page was created yesterday morning (Zim time) and by the time I viewed it in the evening, 51 people had subscribed. I visited it just now to find the fans had doubled to 111! No mean feat for a Zim page just 2 days old. The viral effect is working against the Tide here!
The page description:
These Phones are not only noisy but not strong and an insult to the Cell Phone World……………if you have a G-Tide cell phone dont take this personal we are not after you.We just dont like your gadget…TOTALLY!!!!:advertisement
We don’t know if this is just a disgruntled customer or just someone seriously pissed off with the “noisy” and “not strong” gadgets!
I bet G-Tide Zimbabwe doesn’t know about this. Hey, the guys haven’t even registered the Zimbabwe g-tide domains; evidence they don’t really care much about the internet as a business platform – a big mistake. We did an article on G-Tide last year when they launched their regional office in Harare.
We’ve listed here some posts from the page’s fans:
