Having experience in working at global corporations social media department, I can assure you they do. Heck, some of a.net members may even be on their payroll, for sure.
Where does the conspiracy end? How do you know Boeing doesn’t secretly own Airliners.net via a secret subsidiary? Maybe some of the more vocal members here are being tailed home by private investigators? They must get tired of masterminding these schemes all day every day.
American corporations are generally never ashamed to use every possible communication tools and chanels to spread their word. They probably also believe that when you repeat the same lie many times at different places, even though some well informed people will get more upset, most will start believing it (like the radios playing the same crappy song over and over again until you start liking it).
I remember a year or two ago, I was "receiving" those sponsored ads on Facebook praising the qualities of the Lockheed-Martin F-35 and how it would be a perfect product for the Belgian Army. That my profile would show up when doing queries on "aviation hobby" + "belgian" was probably enough to be targetted.
I was quite half amused, half upset that LM deemed necessary to spent money on trying to convince people like me that my country had to buy their junk. I have zero influence on my country's governement other than being able to vote and the comments below their advertising were anything but polite. Clearly that strategy was counter-productive and naïve, but since Lockheed Martin finally got the deal, it was actually not their money but MY taxes they were spending in advance
Right cause rest of the world is teddy bears and cotton candy ROFL!
People's hate towards other races, nationalities, religions while pretending his/hers is pristine is mind blowing.
