    Hey everyone,

    There is a guy making a killing since 5-6 days on facebook, mainly in France.

    In a few days, he managed to have more that 600,000 fans for a web site he built a week ago. (!!!)

    His method:

    He makes a fan page about a viral video with a catchy title, with a "The video" tab inside.

    Then, in order to see the video you have to go through a fake spam filter where you click 3 boxes: (too bad I can't post a link or pic, but I'm sure you already saw that)

    - The first box makes you like the website fan page on facebook

    - The second one makes you like the video fan page.

    - The third one directs you on a landing page, where he told you that to see the video, you have to click on a fb button.
    This is actually a permission request for his app (allow post on your wall, share your informations etc...).
    I didn't go further in my investigation, but I guess that when you allow it, he posts videos for his website on your wall.

    Does anyone know how the fake spam filter is done? and also what he uses to do it. Making a 600,000+ fan page in less than a week is very impressive!

    Thanks a lot!

    Also, interesting thing to note:

    I think the first video fan page he made as been deleted by facebook, but his website fan page hasn't.
    He keeps the two things separate, the landing page is not is real website, and he don't mention any of its viral groups on his website fan page.
    I guess that's why fb took down the viral video fan page with the fake spam filter but not his real fan page which bring him a ton a traffic.

    Sounds like an example if clickjacking to me. I don't think these scripts run cheap though. Pretty crazy method when put together in a nice package like that.

    This sounds very interesting. I'm going to have to have someone build me a similar script. I mean, 600k in 1 week, imagine 1 month, then 1 year.

    i could acquire a page with just over 1 million fans, just not sure how to effectively monetize it. If there was a way to earn from it monthly instead of a 1 time shot it might be worth getting, but I think too much marketing on it and it would lose its fans.

    Would love to know if anyone is making it work on an ongoing basis

    He doesn't promote products in this fan page. He just puts the new videos he added to his website.
    Obviously to see the video, you have to visit the website and that's how he makes money.
    Imagine your website appears on 600,000 (soon 700,000) fan's walls twice a day.

    Moreover, people continue to spread the site because they also like the videos he posts on the website...

    wow...

    I'm not entirely sure how he goes about steps 2 and 3, but I found this in an ebook I got somewhere, it explains how to make someone like your fanpage before they can see content

    "This page can be created very easily using the code below.

    <div id="wrapper">
    <fb:visible-to-connection>
    FANS-ONLY CONTENT
    <fb:else>
    <div id="non-fans">CONTENT FOR NON-FANS</div>
    </fb:else>
    </fb:visible-to-connection>
    </div>

    All you need to do is get the application ?FBML? for your Facebook fan page. Add it to the tabs menu Then insert the code.
    Heres an example of how you would hide a Youtube video:

    <div id="wrapper">
    <fb:visible-to-connection>
    INSERT YOUTUBE URL
    <fb:else> <div id="non-fans">Click ?LIKE? if you seriously want to check out this dude riding a horse over a rainbow of golden dust</div>
    </fb:else>
    </fb:visible-to-connection>
    </div>

    So non-fans would see the following
    Click ?LIKE? if you seriously want to check out this dude riding a horse over a rainbow of golden dust
    Then once they become a fan they will now see this video link"

    I don't really do anything with fan pages, so I don't know if he just has figured out a way to go from one to the other to the other with this FBML, or if he has his own script.

    But, I guess that is how you make someone like your Fanpage before they can view the content.

    The fanpage is very easy to do. Also, making a Facebook apps is quite easy if you know what you're doing. You can make money, just by having a facebook app, and a video with a catchy title.

    It seems that his other video fan page has been blocked. But his website fan page is still up!
    Very nice technique. I'm waiting for his new viral group to come up now.

    For those who sent me MP, I reply to you as soon as I have 15 posts! :)

    Before you can see the "AWESOME VIDEO" you must invite 10 of your friends to this site
    and after you get it.
    Nymber of likes go like crazy...
    When I look it for this script I catch some page with this " Tinie App V3 "
