It wouldn’t be a normal day if we weren’t talking about another scandal involving everyone’s favorite privacy leaker/seller, Facebook. The social media giant now finds itself the subject of some questionable 5-star reviews on Amazon for its floundering home invader, the Portal.
Facebook’s Portal smart displays have had an uphill battle, trying to convince people to willingly give the notoriously security-lax social media company another avenue into their homes. But it seems some people are pretty happy with their Portals: Facebook employees, who were just caught leaving five-star reviews for their own product on Amazon.
Speaking of coordinated inauthentic behavior, what are the odds that all these 5-star Facebook Portal reviewers on Amazon just happen to have the same names as Facebook employees? pic.twitter.com/bF7U8Fj5kN
