The reality about feedback and likes is that these are indirectly manipulated, especially when you pay for advertisements on Facebook.
Some people in countries like Bangladesh and Egypt are paid to like your page. I guess they are paid per click. I would say they are the FAKE likers of your page because every page they click LIKE, they are paid for that.
What happen the day you STOP advertising with Facebook. You will see your number of LIKES getting cooked day in day out. Why? The FAKE LIKERS DO NOT CARE about your post being good or bad. They are not your fans. They’ve been paid to be your fans. So they will get rid of your page as soon as possible, because they have money waiting for them i.e to like hundreds of pages who are paying FB in form of ads.
So do all these scientific analysis about LIKES, FEEDBACK, REACHED hold good then?
I would say NEVER, because we are being cheated.
When I was paying FB , my FB page would reach more than 5000 people daily. But when these truth came clear to me, I stopped advertising and tried to step back and observe. It became clear: in the space of 3 days, my REACH plummeted from 4000 to 200. And the LIKES get shrinking day by day. This confirmed to me what many people who has been writing on these CHEATING business.
What FB is doing now is that if you pay, they open your algorithm and your posts reach many people/fan, otherwise, be content of the peanuts, they say . - See more at: http://www.marketinggum.com/losing-facebook-fans-how-to-find-out-secret-negative-feedback-insights/comment-page-1/#comment-84153

Very interesting post Brandon.. Spamers are everywhere and social media and search engines should be for users help. people take decisions to buy a particular product on the basis of what other people says and how much likes or reviews product has. Fake things should be under control.

Nice post Brandon.
I've been writing about Facebook quite a lot over the last few weeks.
They aren't just doing nothing to crack down on fake likes and stop scam adverts, recent changes to how the News Feed works gives advertisers even greater incentive to buy fake fans and likes.
Facebook are showing a complete lack of ethics and are taking no moral responsibility at all in dealing with these problems and i'm fed up. Isn't it about time they were held accountable for their actions?
Scammers and spammers do nothing to add value for users - Facebooks own reporting mechanism for scam adverts is a farce. They do nothing after receiving reports of blatant identity theft and ridiculous claims that are unsubstantiated and as such in direct conflict with their own guidelines, proving Facebook has the best interests of its advertisers and not its users in mind with the decisions that it takes.
