    On a recent discovery of an LA Attorney who got caught buying views in order to boost his campaign. I found an interesting paragraph in the published articles regarding the incident:

    "Companies or individuals looking to generate views for movie trailers, commercials or music videos can pay a fixed fee for social-media marketers to deliver a audience, or they can pay per view. Industry insiders told The Times views sometimes cost only pennies each for clients less concerned with whom their videos reach, or up to $2 per view for end user in a targeted demographic."

    (Here's the article http://wavenewspapers.com/news/local/article_2ca7a490-6662-11e1-9209-0019bb30f31a.html)

    So this has me wondering... Because the new "Marvel Avengers Assemble" Trailer on Youtube, The statistics show that 8 Million of the views (Most) came from a mobile device. Maybe they used the mobile views method. And the other strange thing was that 3 months ago I ran into a Geico commecial that generated 12 Million views in 48 hours and 98% of all the views came from "Facebook". Which is impossible, because I searched and they had no Geico Campaign on their fan page and I searched the link and it showed up that the video wasn't embedded at all on Facebook. So maybe the views that supposebly came from "Facebook" were faked and the views came from somewhere else.

    Just an interesting fact that I came across. :confused:
