MS hired contractors to post positive Xbox One comments - [briefly]
02:16 PM EDT - Jun,08 2013 - (1 comments)

Reddit user "mistysilver" claims to have visited Microsoft's Remond, Wash., headquarters for a business meeting this week when members of the company's marketing team were busy voting up positive comments about the Xbox One and voting down negative comments. "I noticed [a Microsoft employee or contractor] was mass-downvoting a ton of posts and comments, and he kept switching to other tabs to make posts and comments of his own," mistysilver wrote in a post on Reddit. "I couldn't make out exactly what he was posting, but I presumed he was doing RM (reputation management) and asked my boss about it later. According to my boss, MS have just brought in a huge sweep of [social media marketing] managers to handle reputation management for the Xbox One."

A post by another user revealed a Reddit account that was created a day after the Xbox One announcement that only posts positive comments about the Microsoft console. The Reddit account for mistysilver was created Friday and has no other posts. Microsoft issued the following response saying the allegation is untrue: "There is no coordinated or sanctioned effort by Microsoft employees, or anyone paid by Microsoft, to unduly influence Reddit or other online forums."
