Nobody “liked” your business? Never fear you can just lie about it

By Barcham - 2 April 2013 21


After listing Canberra’s top 100 most “liked” things, Canberra Centenary have just produced a handy resource for companies and events that nobody likes.

You can now print out a poster provided by the centenary and claim you/your business/your band/your cat/your drug habit is the 101st favourite thing in Canberra, with all the authority of the centenary and the ACT government behind your claim.

See below image for example of how this may be abused.


Seriously, people like me spitting in your ear almost as much as they like the Laksa at Dickson.

You HAVE to try this.

We wanted to make it easy for all those and any others who think they deserve it to nominate themselves as the 101st reason to like Canberra, which was how the poster idea came about. It’s another way for individuals and businesses to promote themselves and the top 100 list.

Can you please explain the process so we understand? Exactly how much tweaking was there, and by whom? How come Charnwood was dropped off the list? Which person was given the authority to do that, and what was the process that led to that decision? Exactly how many changes were made to the original list – e.g., exactly what number of the “raw” original 100 are still there? Were ALL the cultural institutions on the original list, or were some of them added in?
And lastly, where on Earth did you out-of-town PR contractors get “Garema Place Carousel” from? It’s the “Civic Merry-Go-Round”!

Cat got your tongue?
Sure looks as though Robyn Archer’s little Canberra Centenary PR correspondent has “engage on social media only when it suits, and for a one-way communication” on his or her contract!
