    I believe this. I also believe that social networks could fight the spam a lot harder if they wanted to. They need the inflated numbers however. Recently Facebook has been getting a lot of heat for poor ad performance. Some advertisers have even started to jump ship because of poor click through rates. At the same time this became news Facebook started going after fan sellers. I don't think this is coincidence. They want to improve the quality of their traffic now.

    Great post man, especially about fb getting stupid on fan sellers/providers. Social networks need those fake accts to inflate their overall user number which I believe has some impact on the value of the social network.

    What is "spam"? If any kind of internet marketing is "spam" then so are Ford, and McDonalds commercials. Silly...

    I answer your questions like, What is "spam"?
    More than a canned meat, it's a way of life man.

    How do you think I get green like the incredible hulk,
    it's because I'm sending the incredible bulk.
