    I was thinking about buying some fake facebook likes to boost my social proof on my facebook page but then I had this though...

    Seeing as facebook only shows your posts to about 10% of the likers, would buying fake likes not just mean that it would show your posts to the fake profiles instead of the real likes you already had and would potentially get?

    Does anyone know how facebook decides who to show the posts to or how it all works?

    That is correct by buying fake likes, theres a good chance your posts will get shown to the fake likes as apart of that percentage at first. But new likes actually go straight into that percentage so to answer your question..

    Yes your posts will get shown to the fake likes but over time as new likes come in that will push put the fakes and your posts only get shown to the new likes.
