  1. Hey Brian,

    Thanks for the links! i had no clue about this ‘Facebook fraud’ as i would call it. I think at the end of the day, the page that do this end up losing out. People aren’t stupid, it would take a fool to not recognize that there is something fishy going on on a page, and it leaves that business in a position where they have not learnt how to market effectively.

    Like the old saying ‘you get out what you put in’, i don’t think these pages will be benefiting greatly in the long term.

    best to do it the old fashion way! good old hard work, skillful marketing and a great product/service!
