Last Friday we noticed that Grand Theft Auto 5 had a new social channel, which saw a launch many months after it had been originally been created, so this obviously caused 10,000 people to like it in just over one day. The following day we reported the GTA V news about their social profile going live and the fact that it climbed to 25,000 just 24 hours later.
GTA V social rush calms after silence — seeing 25,000 people join Rockstar’s Facebook profile is understandable considering the promises made on their wall, which includes a statement that the news will come first there, so if this is the case why not like it? The problem is there has been nothing posted to the wall since it went live, and in fact the last message had been almost 2 months ago.
There are a lot more than 34,577 people, the current like number, on Facebook that are looking forward to getting hands-on with GTA V, so why the massive slowdown over the weekend with not even another 10,000 likes in 2 days, which is of course still a respectable number?
The key with most companies that create Facebook pages is communication, so we hope this isn’t a sign of things to come and Rockstar do start to get active with their wall in the coming week. They had to make it live for a reason, unless someone pushed the “live” button a little premature like the early trailer reveal?
What would you like to see go live on the GTA 5 wall next? Personally we’d like to see GTA 5 trailer number 2, which needs to include some gameplay with clues towards upcoming features and character involvement. We’d hate to see all the juicy details left to the magazine reveal next month, but we guess that might be the case unless we can all have the GTA 5 release date news and features on the Facebook wall that is, which is what those liking the page are hoping.
