Our Singapore Conversation VS The National Conversation (Singapore)

Our Singapore Conversation and The National Conversation (Singapore). Both look equally legit and both appear to be seeking to engage Singaporeans on PM Lee Hsien Loong's initiative of finding out where Citizens want to bring the Nation to next.

It is not possible for both to be the real McCoy and one is an impostor. The government initiated one is Our Singapore Conversation and the "fake" one is The National Conversation (Singapore).

REAL SITE: http://www.facebook.com/OurSGConversation

Many people are confused by the two because the nature of the postings are so similar. The National Conversation (Singapore) purports to be a citizens-led initiative to have uncensored national conversation but the truth of the matter is that the group that created this clone is creating confusion.

People are going to unknowingly provide their feedback to the unofficial initiative and wonder why the Government did not listen to their views when they should have contributed at http://www.facebook.com/OurSGConversation

The efforts of the legit Our SG Conversation are likely to be compromised as the clone dilutes the efforts in gathering feedback.

For national interests, I certainly do hope the admins of The National Conversation (Singapore) update their facebook information to clearly show that they are not the official government led initiative.

As a concerned netizen, I will encourage Facebook users to report The National Conversation (Singapore) so that something will be done about this impersonation effort.
