Walmart Proves People Will Literally Like Anything on Facebook

Leaf-pile post rakes in the love

As we already know, brands post the silliest stuff to Facebook. But what's truly remarkable is how people eat it up. The latest example: this Walmart photo, which has gotten an impressive 130,000 likes in 24 hours—despite being almost aggressively insipid. Walmart has more than 21 million Facebook fans, of whom thousands upon thousands will love anything you throw at them. Thankfully, there's the counterbalancing Walmart haters, who masochistically like the page so they can write snarky replies to Walmart posts. See below for a sampling of those. What's galling is how obviously fake the image is. An Adweek colleague suggests this tweak: "Like this if you ever Photoshopped your boss's daughter into a stock photo."
