Ever since the marketing style has changed in Hong Kong, companies have been tending to social media to market their products.
Fewer people are reading publications which is why they are going out of print.
Anyway, the topic revolves on OpenRice because tasting reviews are now omitted unless you click “show tastings” because the public is fed up with reviews because they find them more like advertisements.
While I agree with this point, it is also going to encourage more restaurants to open accounts to write fake reviews on their restaurant.
I just hope that the public is ready for this!
It would be good if OpenRice could come up with a scheme so that people with more than 10 reviews or experienced OpenRicers can write the first reviews to counter fake reviews by restaurants at the beginning it is listed.
