    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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?
