Spammers in developing countries like the Phillippines, India, Pakistan and Egypt, among others, are known for operating “click farms”. These click farms create fraudulent likes that make advertising on Facebook useless. Click farms are banned by Facebook and if one who manages a Page to get Likes deliberately uses them, themselves, they will — like hundreds of thousands before them — find their accounts suspended.
These spammers, however, have been known to cover their tracks by clicking the Like button on anything on Facebook.
Derek Muller’s Veritasium, a weekly podcast, that airs on YouTube has come forth boldly and clearly with his assertions.
Advertising to promote your Page on Facebook may very well be a waste of money. Derek Muller got 80,000 Likes (that Facebook won’t eradicate) but not the adjoining upturn in engagement with his post.
Being on a small percent of the newsfeeds of your followers, unless the interest/response rate is high, is the usual Facebook policy. These fraudulent practices aid and abet Facebook as the next step is to dole out more money to Facebook in a useless pursuit to reach followers.
Facebook must do some major overhauling in how things are done to be wholly trusted to do business with, and they know it.
