I think facebook likes price going to be high......
More bad news for spammers lol. I'm wondering if FB is gonna completely wipe out the market place like YT did. Next will be twitter than instagram.
After that you're gonna see job employment skyrocket at Macky D's.
Fake likes are becoming distastefully common in my experience. Less people are engaging and when I visit new follower pages, their profile just shows tons of "changed their profile picture" updates with nothing else.
Was allready posted but yeah this is going to cause prices to go up!
i don't know about that its already posted .
Oops I haven't seen there was already a thread about this. As long as they don't sue the people who sell them it's okay.
I'm pretty sure this story is 90% pure BS. The BS part being the lawsuit, and the truth being FB's recent crackdown on fake likes.
First sentence of the article on the BBC website:
LOL? A $2 billion judgment was awarded against "like sellers" and this is the very first we're hearing about any of it? I don't think so Tim.
What FB actually wrote was:
They've been touting the bold part on their sec blog for years now... That $2 billion in judgments is from all of the lawsuits against spammers over the years. FB has only ever sued a small handful of people for spamming related activities, and most of that money comes from only a few very high profile spammers. Adam Guerbuez alone was ordered to pay a $873 million judgment.
As far as I can tell Facebook has never actually taken a like seller to court. Lot's of threats I know, but never any actual lawsuits.
Someone please post a real source if I'm wrong (like an actual court document), but this seems like just another example of typical half-assed tech "journalism". Other websites seemed to have gotten the story right, so this is just sad and pathetic on the part of the BBC really.
this is BS story if i make hundreds of fake profiles and order them to do what i want they cant nothing about that except to ban accounts when they find.. maybe in usa can sue but not everywhere. only thing they can do is to make some new security to stop this. They want people to buy likes from their damn fb ads.. btw not all of us are spammers who knows what these people was doing else than likes
Is this the 3rd or 4th thread discussing this now?
That's pretty hilarious considering it seems like no one actually got sued. They sure do know how to rustle some jimmies though
All this news fuss is actually just based on a statement from facebook
I seriously doubt this is going to change anything. We just have to be intelligent enough to keep under their algorithmic radar
What to do....what to say.....I.. LIKE... it ?
Grizzy is right. There are MANY sellers out here that have a high chance of being victims of such a lawsuit.
Did we hear anything from them (good or bad)? Nope.
Bluff. Facebook is 'dying', it needs all the attention it can get, even in this way it seems.
Hold up how did youtube get rid of the marketplace for "likes" ? are you talking about when they used to use the star ratings?
And they laughed at me when I said I was going into business selling MySpace likes...
