Whenever we login to Facebook we will find our wall filled with lot of likes, comments and shares from our friends. Most of these likes, comments and shares are genuine but there are fake ones too.
Fake Facebook Likes and Shares
In my wall I found a link of a site (Dirty Talk Q&A Site – It’s not porn but a Question & Answer site) shared by one of my close friend which made me wonder as I know that person from childhood and he never does anything as such. So the next day I called him up and came to know that it’s a fake post.
When we try to use any app in Facebook it will ask for sharing our details along with a permission to post or publish on our behalf. For example when you start with the horoscope app it will ask for certain details along with the permission to post a horoscope on our behalf, that’s the reason we can find lot of horoscope post on our wall.
Recently I found a post shared on my behalf in my Friends Wall who is NO MORE which made me very angry. The worst thing in this is I was not aware of it at all and it was there for almost a year. Also I found lot of such posts published or shared on his behalf.
The main reason behind writing this article is to make all my friends aware about such things. Social Media is one of the best way through which one can market their stuffs so we should be very careful about sharing our details as it can be easily misused for marketing purpose. We should share only when we are sure about the app or the company.
Even Fake Likes are used to market certain stuffs or companies. For example, when we find a company website with more Facebook Like we feel as if that company is loved by many and is good thus we end up using them. These are marketing strategies used by many these days so we have to be very careful in everything that we do and share in Internet.
