    So basically after a year or so of a steady likes count (23,000+), out of nowhere, I lost about 500 in the past 2 days and it keeps dropping.

    In case this info helps anyone out here it goes... out of those 23K likes, about 11,000 came from YouLikeHits - the rest were purchased from Fiverr.com. I am okay with losing a thousand, I'm just worried about the count dropping beyond that.

    Anyone else getting hit as well?

    You can make a thread so go for it. :D
    You can't make a sales thread though, but you are not allowed to sell services like you now seem to be trying now either....

    It's hard to tell if this is true or not.

    Note that Zynga lost fans as well,
    Zynga and FB is following each other. When Zyngas margin drop, so does FBs, and the FB quote.

    Hard to tell.

    I would contact the guy that gave you the fake likes on Fiverr and ask him to redo it again. Most likely he will.

    Yes a few of my sites are getting hit as well. I think this is a good thing thought because it helps to level the playing field when it comes to marketing via fbook. Cutting down the unnatural methods of establishing "authority" is a must for anything on the internet because this will help give quality the end users that are searching for that particular service/product/etc. The ate delivered content that they actually want to read and filter out all the spam/fake sh*t.

    Trust me! It's for the better. May not seem like it to those people that have bought tons of "fake" likes but look at the big picture here. If they did not have things to properly filter and flow traffic then we would all be hit with BS all day everyday. Same goes for Google, this is why they are always doing algorithm adjustments and changes. To not only filter out spam but also filter results to deliver quality information to the end user, this can not be done without proper methods to keep spam/fake stuff out of the picture.

    Fake likes, etc. also impose a burden on the financial structure of Fbook. It throws the balance off from properly and effectively marketing on Fbook both using free/paid methods. They are not going to be able to pick there stock prices up until they get a handle on all the spam/fake stuff all over fbook, this devalues a lot and throws off the market.
