    So all of a sudden im getting alot of likes but cant figure out why. My product is likeable. But its like not anything really that popular right now.

    I bought facebook ads at a penny a click like in june. Saw a litte traffic but nothing special. A few likes here and there a week. Just a link to the page type ad. and now all of a sudden i go from under 1000 likes to almost 3000 likes in a month.

    Likes are mostly from egypt and they are really random people. From highschool kids to 60 old ladys. Im getting a good few a day. Everytime i sign in it says i got a like 23min ago and 2hrs ago etc.

    The reason im being anal about this. Is since fb moved to the promote your ad thing. This can get rather costly. If i wanted to actually promote a post etc.

    wich leads me to believe this is a cruel trick by fb to get more money for promoted ads.

    Can anyone shead some light here or should i not look a gift horse in the mouth?

    Just see that none of your paid ad campaigns are running. I don't think FB will automatically Promote to get money out of you.
    It may also happen that someone is providing likes to you by mistake. I did that once :p
