And now VW's deleting comments too. Evidence: #vwfail

After ignoring well over 1,000 comments on its Facebook pages , Volkswagen has found a new tactic: deleting them. It's difficult to understand why VW bothers to engage in social media like Facebook at all if it has absolutely no interest in listening to what people think . Here's the evidence: two comments on VW Sweden that were there in the evening, but then deleted in the morning. Before: After: Huge thanks to the hundreds (nearly a thousand) of online activists in the 'Jedi Council' - a group of supporters who've been chasing Volkswagen around Facebook to highlight how they're continually dodging the issues and refusing to meet us. Are you on Facebook? Join them. If you're not sure what this is all about, Volkwagen is lobbying against critical laws that will make our cars use less oil and limit our emissions.
