1. Thanks- exactly what I was looking for as I remember another blogger writing that he didn’t like the likes in Blogger groups, if they came from a different niche, as this also interferes with the algorithm.

  2. This is awesome information for those bloggers or businesses about facebook likes. I didn’t know there was ghost accounts or fake people. It is so worth checking for these people. Thanks for sharing the information.

  3. This is so true! And at the end of the day, you’ll just end up disappointed and that is no good. Hope this awareness will reach them out.

      Thank you! And as another poster said, if running ads it is throwing good money after bad! :/

  4. This is such an interesting and helpful. I will put this on my bookmark for my future references.

  5. So true! A few years ago I worked for a company that had purchased a lot of Facebook page likes so it would look like they had a lot of followers. The problem was that when we wanted to run Facebook promotions or even simple posts, we weren’t reaching the real followers, but spending a lot of money on fake followers with no real interest in the company. We had to do a major cleanup.

      I think people just don’t realise! Hopefully, this post will get the word out there. I can imagine the cleanup of that account would have been immense!

  6. Giveaway hops were the trend when I created my Facebook page six years ago. I have attracted quite a following thanks to these giveaways, at the same time, I have discovered a handful of spam likers on my Facebook page. ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Facebook has changed so much and it’s tough to keep up with the metrics. I think this definitely helps in understanding all of it and what you can do as well.

      Glad you found it helpful! Yes, the way they change the algorithm all the time certainly keeps us guessing!

  9. Never really thought about this before. I guess you really could consider likes on FB to be a “see how popular I am” sort of thing… I don’t really care about likes, I just post my content and content I think is funny! ๐Ÿ˜‰
