Peninsula – a simple truth…
You have no idea what you are talking about.
You have tried to jump on the social network and PR bandwagon and failed miserably DESPITE getting on the BBC website (which I refuse to link to on this occasion because of the appalling nature of the article).
47% of the UK population works. Average working hours for those are 8 hours 43 minutes or about 174 hours per month.
If the Facebookers are an average population they should work (3.5 x 0.47 x 174) = 286 million hours per month in total. Of which they spend 233 million hours on Facebook during work hours it seems.
In other words if you replace PLCs with all work in the UK you would come to that all UK Facebook members spends 7 hours 30 minutes per day and during work hours on Facebook leaving 1 hour 14 minutes to real work, walking the corridors, eating and so forth.
But of course, it is truly very bad that they spend all that time online on Facebook when on the farm tractor, when conducting the tube, when driving taxis and running Peninsula. Glad Iâ€™m not British!
That all seems to make perfect sense and doesn’t seem terribly complicated either – why can’t Peninsula seem to get this right? Hope they don’t provide accounting services too…
Turns out that The Times (in the US) is also up to the same type of phantom number-generating when publishing an article about DVD piracy..
To quote Seth:
$903 million is about 9,000 jobs paying $100,000 a year each. That’s a lot of ticket takers, Blockbuster clerks and gaffers. And yet the Times reprints the numbers as true.
I will leave the best until last though. The Enquirer reckons to have got to the bottom of Peninsula’s methodology!
