    I was reading another thread here about facebook likes, and people's offers to generate them.
    People mentioned about getting likes via PPC method, and offers to generate likes. Some seem to get short lived and others last.
    Someone mentioned if the person cared about getting legit Likes.

    Questions:
    So, I ask, what are the different kinds of FB Likes that can be made?
    Does it really matter if it is "legit" Like or "normal" real person Like, if all you want is to show a larger number on the Like?
    Is there any benefit, other than psychological, for having a non-real large Like number?
    Will the Likes generated from the offers to generate the Likes last or disappear?

    I assume generated Likes will not generate any traffic or business, but just show a higher Like number?
    Can there be any harm done to an existing long standing FB business site page if there is a sudden growth on the number of Likes, and they detect they are some how not legit, or I assume from made-up FB profiles?
    If generated Likes disappear, does it happen fast or slowly, and does that make the business site look bad?

    Gottoloveit,

    In general, if you just want to increase the number of likes and don't care about anything else, this may be a good strategy for you. I doubt you will get much interaction from the page but then again I've never run a page that has fake likes so I'm not entirely sure how these businesses go about generating fake likes. My guess would be that they just have thousands of shell accounts that do nothing but sit out there and serve as puppets to like pages.

    In answer to your question, these likes have no other prupose than to make the like volume on the page look larger. For instance someone might want to sell a page so they buy a bunch of likes and then turn around and sell the page.
    You probably can get your account deleted for using tactics like this however I'm not sure how fast it would happen if it would happen at all. Using tactics like this at all may depend on what your goals are for the page. If you have a short term plan for doing this and all you need to show is a number, it may work for you. If your plan is to engage your target market and develop a following, this is not a good strategy.

    There is also the chance that the fake likes/comments and other things will be removed,

    Hope that helps,

    It's like pagerank for facebook. Go google it. You will find your answers there.

    To answers your question. Fake likes will only hurt you in the long run. They do no good other than "seeming" popular
