PM’s Facebook of Bangladeshi friends (Pt 2 of Najib ‘Lost’ series)

If Najib Razak’s official Facebook is full of Bangladeshi friends, then the public might be persuaded to think why not 40,000 Bangladeshi phantom voters, right?

This is a follow-up to my earlier observations in Part 1 about Najib’s Twitter account which is devoid of his aura (personality). Now let’s examine his Facebook pula.

The Prime Minister’s Facebook has 2,230,919 ‘Likes’.

1Malaysia2million

It’s a “coincidence” lah, okay, that Najib’s Facebook has just about as many fans as his Twitter.

Please guess what kind of responses are landing in Najib’s official Facebook? Heh heh heh

Spam: “earn 10,000 rupees a day”

Replying to an entry about the amount of FDI parked in Malaysia last year, Najib’s Facebook friend Mukeshkumar Parmar posted spam to solicit gullible Malaysians to “earn 10,000 rupees a day” by just spending an hour to do … (see screenshot below).

Remember, this “10,000 rupees pocket money” ad is appearing in the official Facebook of the Prime Minister of Malaysia … eh, malu lah.

Najib’s Bengali friends

Among Najib’s Facebook friends is a Bengali by the name of Emon Sarkar. This guy really ‘likes’ Najib or in other words, Najib Razak is his No.1 ‘like’, Really, it says so in Emon’s profile.

Emon also ‘likes’ many of Najib’s Facebook entries and keeps giving them the thumbs up.

The catch is this: Emon Sarkar’s own Facebook is posted entirely in Bengali and has only got Bangladeshi contents — mostly ads, posters, poems and inspirational quotes. The nature of these contents do not indicate or reflect a very ‘real’ persona — in the sense that ordinary Facebook users would normally upload updates on their daily activities.

Therefore it does look like some parts of Najib’s fan base belong to the ‘Rent a Crowd’ variety.

Emon Sarkar 2014-03-14 00-22-23

ABOVE: Emon Sarkar’s Facebook is in Bengali.

Another Bengali-speaking fan of Najib is someone whose Facebook name is ‘Butt Lovley’.

Strangely, Butt claims to be in/from Ipoh, Perak. However the content of his Facebook is oriented to the Indian sub-continent.

BELOW: Screenshots of Butt Lovley’s many likes on Najib’s Facebook.

Butt Lovley Najib Facebook

According to his profile page, Mr Butt Lovley likes:

  • Aapas ki baat, a Pakistani talk show
  • Najib Razak
  • Hishammuddin Hussein
  • Farzad Farzin, Iranian singer
  • Just Babes
  • Upskirts, Camel Toes & Nipple Slips

Najib is put alongside such illustrious company (screenshot below).

I’m afraid Najib’s Bangladeshi Facebook fandom is not reflective of high intellectualism — not if “upskirts” and “nipple slips” are anything to go by.

Butt Lovley upskirt

Bangladeshis who are keen on Najib’s Transformation programmes?

Urm, maybe they’re hoping they’ll be able to vote …

These Bengali Facebookers are the ones consistently ‘liking’ Najib’s entries on his economic and other Transformation programmes.

If we look at Butt Lovley’s Facebook entries, he is uploading photos/posters every few minutes in clusters throughout the day. This pattern of posting is not indicative of an authentic Facebook user. Similarly the other Dhaka Bangladeshi I mentioned earlier, Emon Sarkar.

You can check out Najib’s Facebook for yourself to see how many others among his 2.3 million Facebook fans are equally suspect.

FacebookNajibEcons

The real Facebookers bash Najib

Who can believe that any of these ‘people’ are the greatest fans of Najib’s ETP, GTP and other Transformation programmes?

On the other hand, the Facebooker Tang Le’Mond (screenshot above) who posted “U nak deliver apa, rakyat return to sender. Simple as that. Your word is rubbish to us” in response to Najib’s announcement (that the PM will be delivering a speech at the National Economic Summit) sounds more believable.

I’ve noticed that Najib is not spared the opposition cuts in his Facebook. Here is where the Najib Facebook moderators fail because they do not engage the critics by properly explaining Najib’s 1Malaysia policies.

The PM’s social media is to help him connect with the rakyat and hopefully to popularize him. Najib is paying tens, if not hundreds of millions of ringgit, for THE CONSULTANTS to run his social media campaign. And this is the rubbish that he gets?!

BELOW: One of Najib’s biggest Facebook fans is a guy called Butt Lovley who is also a great fan of ‘Upskirts, Camel Toes and Nipple Slips’.

Butt Lovley ni letakkan “Like Najib” sebaris dengan “Like Upskirts, Camel Toes and Nipple Slips”.

  1. Apa dah jadi pada pengarah media baru umno…. tak kan buta juga dengan perkembangan ini ms Helen?

    Kata nak promote “Lifestyles” sebagai approach media baru umno tapi faham ke tidak apa substance yang nak di tonjolkan?

    Patut le evangeiblis mudah je mendapat liputan dan acceptance oleh penganutnya walaupun menipu dalam bahan mereka.

    Khairy, apa dah jadi dengan orang muda pimpinan mu. Banyak anak muda melayu dan mudi melayu tapi kenapa vegina juga yang kau menaruh kepercayaan.

    Ilmu ada tapi kalau tak pandai guna orang lain main belakang nanti. Harap kalau mata dah buta jangan lah sampai hati pun sama.

  2. Talking about phantom bangla voters, recently I went to Cameron Highland via Simpang Pulai & went down via Tapah route. On the way down i.e. at Brinchang there was a pasar malam. I parked my car in front of an army post. The parking attendant was a Bangla wearing the blue BN t.shirt, the type given during the last GE.

    While asking how much the parking charge was, I also asked him; “waaa, awak pakai BN punya baju, ada undi ka?” His answer surprised me; “ya, ada undi!”. Even though he answered me half laughing, I think he was telling the truth.

    1. Please don’t spread anymore rumours about bangladeshi votes, no matter how you suspect that one bangladeshi wearing a BN shirt did vote. Immigrants will always often tell you what you want to hear just to shut you up and they don’t have to answer anymore question just to be in the country making a living.

      We have PR supporters doing that job to spin it out of control. Use your wise judgement.

      1. When Najib was photographed holding up the headless chicken bought at a basement price of RM1, I was wondering if his consultants were secretly working to menangkan lawan.

        Now we find Bangladeshis squatting in the PM’s official Facebook. My suspicion is strengthened that his ceiling priced consultants are indeed working to menangkan lawan by subtly making the PM’s credibility to sink and keep sinking.

        After all, it was his own Pemandu consultant who tweeted referring to Najib as “former Prime Minister”.

          1. More than a possibility.

            A glaring example in another precinct of Putrajaya — Look who is sitting in the Minister of Youth and Sport office.

              1. The two ‘SLAP’ mascots (one on each side to balance):

                (1) Teresa Kok for DAP

                (2) KJ for Umno

  3. Helen,

    apa boleh buat… PM Najib pakai Pemandu yang sedang memandu dalam keadaan mabuk…. selagi Pemandu berkenaan tak dibuang atau ditukar setidaknya, tunggu ajelah dibawaknya masuk gaung….!

    1. Masalahnya lagi runcing kerana PM sendiri yang bayar Pemandu gaji besar yang membolehkan mereka mampu membeli whiskey mahal-mahal.

  4. Bangladesh’s Islamic tradition is known to be moderate in tenor. It is the Hanafi school of jurisprudence and the saintly practices of the Sufi lineages. Hanafi is one of the four schools of thought in Sunni Islam and is known for its reasonable religious orientation.

    However, in recent decades, political ideology has creeped into Bangladesh’s customary practices. Indeed, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia have been fuelling the “Islamisation” of Bangladesh. As one person put it, “Pakistan is the breeding ground and the brain, while Saudi Arabia supplies the wealth.”

    Saudi Arabia is a major founder of madrasas and mosques in Bangladesh – and it is no coincidence that Wahhabism’s political objectives are increasingly turning into social reality.

  5. Several members lashed out at the Penang government for marginalising the poor Indian groups.

    They took Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to task for unable to resolve a slew of issues ranging from the Batu Lanchang crematorium, land matters to the lack of affordable housing for

    Isn’t Batu Lanchang in the borders of Bukit Gelugor. isn’t the MP and DUN of the environs Indians? You can guess who is the MP right kawan2.

  7. I don’t think Butt Lovley is a fake person. He looks like someone who came to Malaysia as a student and later working here.

      1. Seems like the photo was taken somewhere in Selangor. The hawker licence. He has someone called Abdul Hanan Bhuttha who likes the photo. I think that guy is from Pakistan. I think Butt is also Pakistani.

          1. Wow he does not protect his FB. We can all his mobile uploads. Milan thinks he is so hunky. Sexy biceps

            1. First of all, the name “Butt Lovley” can hardly be genuine.

              I would be suspicious that the profile photo of the sexy biceps is genuine either. Remember how the Red Beanies punk’d the Umno bloggers with the Hong Kong chess player photo?

              Examine Mr Butt’s Facebook lah for clues. For someone claiming to have a connection with Ipoh, I do not see Malaysiana in his Facebook content.

  8. I have to correct you on this, so that followers will understand better wrt to Social Media. Whoever is the managing our PM’s twitter account has the following tasks to accomplish:

    1. Transmit message as and when required;

    a. You have stated in your earlier entry that the PM fails to differentiate his own twit and that of his administrator’s, unlike Obama. While this is correct to certain extend, the fact remains that whatever message that is being twitted is as good as PM’s message itself, as the T&C over the management of his account is based on that understanding. Different people will take different approach on this;

    b. PM also lost ah?

    You have to understand, under crisis management that involved national interest certain protocol must be followed. This has to be strictly adhered to so as to avoid conflicting information being relayed unnecessarily. Even in Tun M’s FB the administrator will only put a disclaimer as and when necessarily only.

    In this case, our PM has made the right the decision to let H2O handles the issue mostly on his own, and we must admit that he has done a great job on this (there is hope in H2O after all). Even then the media throughout the world has come up with various version of the tragedy on their own; which H2O has effectively rebutted and refuted.

    It is a common SOP adopted by most country and organizations, where only certain personnel is allowed to speak on behalf of the respective. A case in point, l2 years ago I had argument with a prime-time newscaster somewhere in ASEAN over the Philippines Defense Minister’s refusal to grand interview for him to talk about the PRC naval intrusion near Spratlys. This despite he, himself, is of Pinoy origin and thinking that he would have easy access over the rest of the media through out the world. To his disappointment, he was refereed to the foreign affair department just like everybody else.

    So for you to say that our PM is lost and by that virtue insinuate that he knows nuts or “lepas tangan” is rather unfair.

    2. Increase number of followers;

    a. Fake accounts/followers

    i. I believe that the fake accounts are due to desperate measures taken by the administrator to achieve the agreed target numbers combine with the fake accounts created by real users themselves. This is nothing new, as Rebeanies have taken the same approach where each of them was reported to have at least 150 accounts.

    The same approach was also adopted and employed by many organizations who are “desperate” to promote and introduce their new products in the market. This marketing ploy is nothing new, for it has been going on since FOREVER even before the social media was invented e.g. fake customer testimonial.

    ii. Freeloader (or Free Rider?)

    The Bangladeshi follower mentioned in this entry is a typical freeloader who would use any account with large followers to promote their blog, product or FB. It works the same way, where blogger links others’ website to improve and increase traffics.

    A case in point, sometime last year a Malaysian actress had a commotion with her twitter followers, where many of them use her twitter space to promote their products much to her disappointment.

    1. re: “So for you to say that our PM is lost and by that virtue insinuate that he knows nuts or “lepas tangan” is rather unfair.”

      I said the PM is “lost” in specific reference to his social media campaign where he seems unaware that half, if not more, of his Twitter followers are fake, and his Facebook fans too.

      re: “This is nothing new, as Rebeanies have taken the same approach where each of them was reported to have at least 150 accounts.”

      The Red Beanies are guttersnipes. Our PM is a Pahang nobleman from the Top 4 most illustrious families connected to the Pahang palace. He mustn’t let his overpaid social media admins/handlers jatuhkan nama keturunan Orang Kaya Indera Shahbandar.

      re: “The Bangladeshi follower mentioned in this entry is a typical freeloader who would use any account with large followers to promote their blog, product or FB.”

      The PM’s Facebook moderator, if he was doing his job at all, would have weeded out the spam. It is a duty and responsibility. This is after all the Prime Minister of Malaysia’s official Facebook.

      1. Re. I said the PM is “lost” in specific reference to his social media campaign where he seems unaware that half, if not more, of his Twitter followers are fake, and his Facebook fans too.

        He has too many others important things to attend too. The job of cleaning up the list of followers plus posting by followers should have been done by the Administrator.

        Re. The Red Beanies are guttersnipes

        A marketing ploy (perception war) is still a marketing ploy, it doesn’t discriminate. Again the job should have been undertaken by the Administrator.

        Re. The PM’s Facebook moderator, if he was doing his job at all, would have weeded out the spam. It is a duty and responsibility. This is after all the Prime Minister of Malaysia’s official Facebook.

        I don’t think that the moderator bothers to read, thus the current problem. Plus sometimes it is hard to manage, for sometimes followers appear genuine but at later stage they change skin. You have experienced the same in your blog, but you still let most of them through. I have also forewarned you about this many times; Yahweh Melayu is one of them, and Pedang is another case, plus few others before that.

        The other possible reason is that they may have just want to hear the negative things as well not just the good things. If you follow his FB, you will read all sort garbage and mean things some of them said about the PM and his wife. Tun M is not spared as well wrt this.

        I didn’t followers Obama and David Cameron’s twitter or FB, but judging by the freedom of press and speech, I am not surprise, both suffer the same. This I observed from responses by followers in the US yahoo news and others media in the UK, where they call them all sort of names.

        1. re: “He has too many others important things to attend too. The job of cleaning up the list of followers plus posting by followers should have been done by the Administrator.”

          Of course I don’t expect YAB Dato’ Seri Najib to personally clean up his Twitter and Facebook. But it does show something when his people are not only failing to do their job but their negligence and deliberate sabotage (in the case of the “former Prime Minister Najib” tweet by Pemandu) is plummeting his prime ministerial stature into the ravine.

          re: “Again the job should have been undertaken by the Administrator.”

          On an operational level, yes (with the Admin) certainly. But the buck stops with No.1.

          e.g. in Japan, Ministers have resigned in shame to take responsibility for the mistakes made by their subordinates.

          re: “sometimes followers appear genuine but at later stage they change skin. You have experienced the same in your blog, but you still let most of them through. I have also forewarned you about this many times; Yahweh Melayu is one of them, and Pedang is another case, plus few others before that.”

          Ya lah, I let through ‘yahweh melayu’ although he gives me a hard time, and ‘Pedang’ although he ruffles many feathers but neither of them spam readers about how to earn pocket money through doing xyz.

          re: “If you follow his FB, you will read all sort garbage and mean things some of them said about the PM and his wife. Tun M is not spared as well wrt this.”

          Some commentators spew garbage and say mean things about me too. But they are the distractions and not part of our main thread. Our discussion narrative remains intact and on track because I put in a lot of effort to counter and rebut the other side.

          I haven’t measured the actual percentages (it can be done but it will be too time-consuming and too much work) of Facebookers “against Najib Razak” versus “for Najib Razak” but the fact that his admins/moderators have let things get so much out of hand (i.e. Dapsters hating on the PM in his own turf) only goes to show how his own people – the paid consultants, social media handlers – are losing him and losing BN the perception war.

          As I’ve said earlier, I’m beginning to wonder whether Najib’s consultants are like the Regina Lees. The J-Star is supposedly owned by MCA but their readers actually rejoiced at the passing of the Wanita MCA vice chairman.

  9. Najib? Yes, you are rated as a very inconsistent leader! Why don’t u face Anwar? Scared?
