    "It turns out that people posting links to Facebook fan pages to third-party scam sites may be bringing in as much as US$200-million a year."

    The operative word is "may". Like most of the shit posted on Yahoo, just make up random shit and say well this may happen.

    If people are providing quality content to their fan pages and keeping facebook users on their site longer then they should be getting paid yes

    Report : "Some group of random people may or may not have made 3 trillion dollars off Instagram. Details unclear at this time but it seems like the money may have been of green color with a former President stamped somewhere on it. Reporters may have made this story up."
