A Friendly visit to Pocodot

After seeing enough spam from on all my favorite YouTube videos, I thought of giving this website a friendly visit.

If you don’t know what is Pocodot then just visit any popular YouTube videos and you’ll see that Pocodot bots have spammed all over them. The Pocodot bots use fake YouTube user accounts to comment about Pocodot on popular video songs. Within few seconds these comments are given up vote by fellow bots, thereby making these spam comments to appear as Top Comments.

Here is a screenshot of Pocodot if you are curious to see how it looks.

The site itself is slow, poorly designed, looks like cheap ripoff of twitter & facebook. I don't see any compelling reason for anyone to register an account with Pocodot!

If you are curious to know if all those celebrities Pocodot account really exists? Yes, they do! But these are all fake accounts & you will get couple of them whenever you search for any celebrity in Pocodot.

OK, spamming may give you a head start! You may get few hundreds of new visitors, but its of no use if none of them comes back. I guess this is what the case with Pocodot. Just wait for few more months and Pocodot shall die its natural death.
