    “at least three of the roughly 100 five-star reviews for the Facebook Portal all match the names of specific Facebook employees”

    This is news? 🙄

    I’ve seen my teammates at another company review our own app, too. I know they did it on their own accord, it was lame, and who cares.

    These people are well-meaning and likely expressing genuine opinions. There’s a conflict of interest, though, and they should disclaim their relationship with the company or refrain from writing anything.

    But then again, this is news? 🙄

      It's not news. These "journalists" are failures and should work at Starbucks.

      TC at Starbucks is probably better than as a "tech blogger" too

    Big deal. Who cares. It's more common than you think.

      Should I consider this as official acknowledgement?

    They couldn't buy Portal at the company store and used their real names in their public Amazon profiles?! This is so Facebook :-)

    If I helped build the device, and was proud of it, I’d leave a good review too.
