So in the aftermath of the Best of Korea FB page… (this one) I did ask the owner of page to link to my blog on the page as a way of compensating me for firstly taking my comics with no credit to me and then secondly for having an admin abuse me, threaten to hack my blog, steal my comics, remove the urls and then make a fake FB page (claiming it’s the official My Korean Husband FB page) stealing my profile pic and everything.
I’m guessing they never linked to me as I’ve had no increase of traffic from that source. The last correspondence I had with the owner of Best of Korea was her asking me to get my fans to stop spamming their inbox. Oh so sorry my fans were upset about me being threatened and my comics stolen!
I was so worn out by all this drama that I had no desire to fight any more. The biggest thing was getting the fake FB page taken down and it’s down now. It’s just such a shame the type of people they are. They could have done more. Surely that admin should have been fired right? Nope.. she is still there.
It isn’t surprising really… the type of Facebook it is - all they are doing is taking other people’s stuff and posting it. Some totally cringe-worthy stuff too (none of them are actually Korean).
In the end it’s pretty depressing that these people really believe they are so great because of the amount of FB likes they have - on a FB where they don’t actually create anything themselves. I couldn’t believe it when that admin told me that they are way better than me because they have way more FB likes….. lol what.
I’m pretty sure that was part of her vindictive motive the second time she stole comics and made the fake FB, also stealing my bio from the blog AND making a fake Mr Gwon page as well. She wanted to prove how many likes she could get. Within a day that fake page got more likes than my real FB page. Best of Korea own a bunch of other pages as well and it was promoted on them as well. I say “promoted” but really people are told “LIKE THIS PAGE!” and they mindlessly like it. There is no connection made with people and on the fake page there was very little conversation or engagement. Why do people think likes matter so much? The community is more important than the number of likes and on our real FB we have a great community and a great bunch of regular commenters.
That’s the thing though…. the beliefs of the girls that run Best of Korea differ so far from my beliefs. I think they also know it’s harder to report community pages on Facebook, which is why the fake FB page was technically a community page. There apparently has been a FB glitch for months where you can’t actually report stolen intellectual property properly. FB really doesn’t care at all.
The positive that came out of this was realising how much all our blog readers care about us. I really appreciate everyone. People completely spammed them and tried reporting them over and over. How many Best of Korea fans messaged me? None…. Which shows that the connection you make with people is so much more important than the number of times random people have clicked a button. So in conclusion, I’m not wanting to fight them any more, but just wanted to update everyone and say thank you to everyone who helped.
