Oh, wait, I'm not. You know why? Because Abby Farle is fake. I'm Jeremy Goldman, author of the upcoming Going Social: Excite Customers, Generate Buzz, and Energize Your Brand with the Power of Social Media and blogger at jeremygoldman.com.
You know why I'm not lying to you about who I am? Because lying to further a cause sucks. Brands shouldn't do it. Advocates of those brands shouldn't do it.
I'm sure many of you have seen that Chick-Fil-A has allegedly created Abby Farle to stick up for their policies. The truth is still coming out - but we do know that Abby Farle - at least the one in the picture - is a fake.
Assuming for a second Abby Farle is 100% the creation of a brand - or a brand representative - doesn't that suck? Shouldn't we be past this type of idiotic manipulation as a society?
In my mind, we are. That's why I'd like to encourage all of you to avoid any brand that speaks down to you or misleads you in any way. We're smart, and we're owed better.
