    Ya I always knew facebook was doing this. It's very easy for them to just program a script tied to accounts to like a page. No clicking involved for them at all.

    So promoted posts are the way to go? Buying likes appears to be counter-productive, even if they're legit.
    Not a shock unfortunately.
