Published by MENBOX.bg Interview with a troll
Author: Alexander BoychevTrolls in the forums and social networks - all speak for them. The truth is that chaos reigns in the explanation of what it is. We found one and took him an interview.
For most people, the trolls are online users who run for money or slandered laudatory comments about the causes, people, businesses or political parties.
For other people trolls are online users who have no other work , except for money (for many ) to sit all day in front of Computer and preravyat forum after forum.
In the perception of the audience - the subject of mystification , as in any focus is a kernel of truth . But trolls are not people . They are avatars. They do not exist . They are subject to virtual reality. They are multiple manifestations of alter ego 's.
Trolls are grown on farms - for " farms " serve virtual homes, such as websites and social networks. A troll out of the digital " mud " and begins to grow. And his dungeon master, his master of " darkness " confidently with your keyboard sculpts his destiny - added his friends makes him like things , not like others, makes him live , even in the virtual world .
At the end of the day dungeon master- the with love looking at their few trolls / avatars / virtual identities and takes a sip of wine in your offline world.
Sought and found such a dungeon master. Menbox.bg will respect his desire to keep his complete anonymity.Since when developing such projects?
I have been doing this since 2009 . I was interested of the subject when I was a student second course and began to experiment . First, I identified several themes and started to write on them. I created my profile in several dozen forum. Facebook
was not as active during that time. And since then , that today we're a team of 7 people who deal professionally with it. How people manage a virtual physical person?
We have about 600 accounts on Facebook
and more than 1,200 in various forums.
Sammy you may consider that each of us has about 250 accounts that use on demand and order. All these profiles are supported and run hard. Lead your table each profile - what is the name of the person you fantasize , what is the email that we have signed , city , address, profession. All this information is stored in a table which actually is the engine of our business and the business.Who are the clients of the services " trolls "?
We have a variety of clients - we wrote and we have commented in protecting people from business , the public sector, politicians. Usually people looking for us if they want to harm the image of someone else or company.
Most often they are competitors who want to " flood the Internet " negative discrediting their competitors. One time we had quite curious incident when within three days called us both . It was quite comical to troll against someone and soon to go and write another.
This can lead to a split personality as a joke of course. But lately, people who pay for this are politicians, public figures or those embroiled in a skalndal . And receive orders from large companies who want to izpaknem negative aspects of services to their competitors .What services do they want political parties , if they buy virtual support?
In most cases, they want to push their views on various issues or decisions. For example, quite material written by referendum on Belene NPP. We have worked both opposition parties and the government. Basically we are working non-party and so , for what we paid . Not infrequently we defended politicians and tried to dislodge them in a better light. One of the tasks for which they pay a parliamentary groups was to write against energy companies last year. General interest, especially economic, that is, which is the main motivator for someone to pay for these services .What is the most controversial campaign that you have organized?
Only scandalous - would rather share a few interesting . Some time ago there was trouble between an organization and a certain man of sport. Quite actively intervened there for five weeks we were able to generate more than 4,000 comments , including creating and developing a Facebook
page and a group with over 12,000 followers . Earlier I mentioned that we were involved in the referendum campaigns past to build a second nuclear plant. We have a lot of work and the protests . This is where we make the best money lately . Interestingly it has to work for both sides . Splitting into camps and soil. And yet one of the parties " escape " from the forums and moved only in social networks , we managed with the help of other like us to move away from there.
Took part in a campaign in dispute mezhu two companies in the field of entertainment and the entertainment business. Both companies are nationwide and there had to defend the position of one of them . It was a great battle , and for three weeks we wrote over 1,500 comments.Do you follow the matrix scenario in preparing virtual content?
Yes, of course. No organization can not achieve quality results. For each client understand what support his points.
We develop 100-200 comments that are reviewed and approved by him. If it’s required, we make corrections, adjustments and base them to create comments and participation in forums and social networks. Each of us strives to make from 40 to 60 posts per hour, 8 hour day. We also have more 20th people who are our friends and we can activate them as needed.
Each is divided into team of 2-3 people and take up the specific sites and places where to write . Just not having a plan and an estimate of the action can not happen job. After the end of each day preparing a report with links and account names which where comments. On a weekly basis is sent to the client for verification. Quite often happens that admins delete our comments , but for the next week are looking to compensate.
