    Why are you pissed off quickpick? This is the kind of shit bhw users do. This is what is being taught all the time here.
    What do you think this place is all about? What origin do you think most of the users here have?

    It's the fact that facebook is screwing users who are paying for legitimate ads and receiving fake likes in return.

    The real legit reason to be pissed is the fact it's okay for Facebook to be deceptive and say they are real
    and this is a legit way to get likes and then basically scam so called "honest" people trying to use the
    proper channels to get likes.

    What we do here is openly exchange or buy likes for a price which is not deceptive at all because the
    purchaser knows what he/she is getting. So the double standard can and will piss marketers off.

    Exactly. We know that the 50,0000,0000 likes we are getting for $5 are fake. The people spending thousands with FB ads dont.

    He's obviously pissed off at the hypocrisy of all this.

    Pretty informative and great video. I've always had my suspicions and I always tell my clients to avoid paying for Facebook ads for their pages.

    this has been happening for a while, some dude tried to buy likes for his charity page. He promoted a post and only 100 people saw it out of 100,000 so he went through the accounts and saw that most were fake.

    With enough money anything can be legal unless you cross someone the wrong way.

    Exactly. Evry fucking big company plays his own rules cause have money to do so. Companies like paypal stops abusing the user's money only once they got a lawyer's letter. But as that hardly happens, as it involves a lot of money, they wont stop abuse all the other users.

    And then theres companies like facebook which scam without letting you know or without left any footprint which could be taken to court.
