People/companies selling Facebook Likes guarantee 100-1000 likes for your Facebook page. Some say "real looking likes", "permanent likes", "verified", etc.
I figured I'd try one of these guys out, and got 95 likes on a page.
In my initial investigation of these likes, this is what I found:
- All had 100+ friends, many of which are linked (all seem to have the same "friends")
- All started around October with various quotes like "If you are given a take-home exam, you will forget where you live.", all posted on their timelines, with no new posts since February.
These statuses seem to come from db's like that at cutefacebookstatus dot c()m (not providing them with any type of link-back).
I there some application that's auto-generating these pages for these people?
Do these types of "Likes" end up hurting a FB page's ranking/ability to help the web page it points to?
