Rockford Spammer Launches To Share Accurate And Reliable Information
Countless fan pages on Facebook aim to “stick” to mainstream media by covering news in their own way. There are some issues with this.
- The news is also not factual.
- Some of their “breaking news” is lacking in information because it is just too early for the full story.
- Most press releases are not sent to third party websites or blogs, they are sent to TV and radio stations. Indeed, despite opinions, radio and television reach a much wider audience, especially radio.
- They are not accredited journalists, reporters or the media.
“EVERYONE CAN DO IT”
While this is technically true, anyone can start a blog, website, fan page, podcast, etc., it doesn’t make them a professional or mean they understand how to work. news and information. I can sing into a microphone and cast it online, but that doesn’t make me a professional singer.
All kidding aside, there has been a Facebook account and website involving Rockford for several years now that can provide useful information from time to time, but is often controversial. Sometimes it seems like there is a direct effort to stir the pot, which puts some users off. The account I am talking about is not an accredited news and information site, nor recognized by local authorities, police and firefighters, etc. Rather, it is a profitable hobby.
ROCKFORD SPAMMER LAUNCHES ON FACEBOOK
There is a new Rockford related fan page that launched this week on Facebook and is already gaining a lot of followers, it’s Rockford Spammer.
The creator cites incidents on Facebook in which some fans of a Facebook page with the same title are lambasted for opposing the “news”, noting photos that were allegedly stolen and other negative comments.
I will gladly take any relevant information as a source, and you will be credited with it. YOU WILL NOT SEE WATERMARKS IN ANY PHOTO. I will share a lot of credible and official sources in the region.
THAT HE HAS DONE ?
Those who know the creator tell me he’s a very nice standing guy and loves the Rockford area.
