Oh, that’s literally what CBC quoted them saying. “Stop complaining on facebook.”
I don’t think Facebook complaining is helpful either. And having the mayor post his information exclusively on Facebook isn’t helpful.
I’m an outsider looking in, but here are some observations:
- the city (and the mayor) have some clear and accurate information and messages. They’re positive.
- putting these messages on Facebook is a negative, since they’re surrounded by conspiracies, nutbars, and whiners.
- The city has a communications department, and I’m sure they’re pulling their hair out (or facepalming) every time the mayor posts on facebook.
- pick a message, stick to it.
I mean, I wouldn’t want them to post their stuff on HTMF exclusively either. 'cause it would be surrounded by another, different group of nutbars, conspiracies (ALIENS!), and other bullshit.
But hey, like I said, I’m an outsider looking in. I am friends with the mayor on facebook, and I did contribute to his political campaign way back when. I think he’s doing a great job. He just needs to stop posting official shit on facebook. Or if he can’t stop doing that, then the rest of the city staff and council need to stop complaining about facebook :-). Pick a message and stick to it.
