BlackBerry ‘mindful’ of suspect opinions, ‘working with Google to unravel this’
BlackBerry’s launch of BBM on Android this week was marred by a rather large number — and extremely suspect — reviews left in Google Play along with its 10 million installations on Android and iOS. Apparent to anyone with a set of peepers, the reviews in question all share the same broken English and likely Indonesian origins, though the number of stars left on each review varies.
The reviews read, “Thank you so much blackberry team. I was waiting this app. Its really great user friendly and smooth”
It’s still unclear whether the scores and scores of copycat reviews are a coordinated (if ridiculously obvious) effort to game the system, who, exactly, was behind it — as we all know, BlackBerry and BBM have a very … passionate … user base — and why the hell they didn’t think anyone would notice. To leave a review on an app in Google Play, you have to have a Google+ account. So there are at the least names and faces to move with the farce.
BlackBerry’s Victoria Berry, director of PR for BBM, gave Android Imperative the next observation:
We now have not too long ago been made aware about a variety of probably faux 5-big name opinions of BBM for Android on Google Play. We don’t approve of or condone such actions and are dedicated to working with Google to get to the bottom of this. There are additionally many really nice and helpful evaluations from our new BBM customers on Google Play. We want to inspire our passionate enthusiasts and customers to proceed to supply real assessments of the BBM expertise thru the right kind channels.
So, yeah. One thing’s up. We nonetheless have no idea precisely why, although.
