Facebook Cans Spam
Facebook put up a long post today on the business blog with a veiled warning to Page owners – don’t buy likes or artificially inflate your pages. We’ll find you and punish you.
But they didn’t want to be that blatant, so they made it about the spammers instead:
We have obtained nearly $2 billion in legal judgments against spammers, and we utilize these channels when possible to remind would-be offenders that we will fight back to prevent abuse on our platform. We also limit likes per account to make spammers’ operations less efficient. When like activity gets unusually high, we take additional steps to make sure the likes are legitimate, such as asking for additional verification.
