Rihanna gobbled up 1 million dollar to sign up for an account at Pocodot, and Lady Gaga inadvertently accepted 2 million dollar from Pocodot. Okay, that’s sweet, but really — what the heck is Pocodot?
Pocodot is a Facebook-killer. And it is pushing hard to make its presence sense on the web. That’s what Pocodot.com is all about, I thought.
However, this social networking website takes the dirty route by using YouTube as its weapon to trick the users. Check out the popular music videos on YouTube and you’ll know that Pocodot has drummed the rhythm out of these videos by dropping convincing comments and rapidly earning “thumbs up” in the comment section of YouTube. Yes, the comments on celebrities tying up with Pocodot are fake.
Pocodot spam on YouTube
