    According to Mashable "Spreading spam on Facebook Pages is a booming business of at least $200 million a year. And a single post that contains a spam link is worth from $13 to $58, depending on how many likes the Facebook page has, according to researchers."

    I call BS on this. I think most posts never get seen, at least from my experience.

    OP that is conservative it is likely to be much more than that!

    But I guess we will never know as they will back off on these figures...

    Because facebook is spam free as the honcho Mark Zuckerberg is all SPAM!
