Reminder to all users that companies post on /g/

Most post about products are usually posted by the parent company, or a competitor if it's bad.

You don't seem to understand consumerism. Companies don't need to start threads here. People do it for free.

Shilling for shills, a new low. Not really.

In all seriousness, I find it hard to believe that high profile tech companies would waste their time trying to shift /g/'s opinions. 4chan may have a relatively large userbase, and /g/ may be a reasonably high-traffic board (though nowhere near /b/ or /v/,) but it still doesn't seem like it would pay well enough to hire people to shitpost here. I mean, they'd also be targeting the (hopefully small) subset of users that actually believe what they hear on /g/ and do what /g/ says to do. Not to mention that /g/'s most vitriolic posters tend to shoehorn sexism, racism and other things that offend normies into their posts. If it was discovered that a marketing guy at some company was talking like a 4channer to sell products, it would ruin them. The risk is too large.

Is there any evidence for this, or is it just a meme and/or baseless paranoia?

Just a baseless paranoia, senpai.
Now why don't we talk about the freshly new iPhone 6s and all the wonderful functions that it has?!?

Not really. Places like Reddit's technology subreddit are significantly bigger than /g/.

Look:
Right now, 4chan has 189,134 users, and has had 2000 Mposts. /g/ has had 5.2 Mposts. So I'd guess there are like 500 people on /g/ right now.
/r/technology has 2,319 users online, and it would be much easier to market on their without getting caught. So why would a marketer waste time trying to advertise here?
>>
Apple produces so good products the users actually advertise them to everyone.
Poorfags blown the fuck out.

Wait, nevermind. Apparently I cannot count to 8.
/g/ is bigger than I thought; it must have about 5k users online.
