So I saw a couple of different places where you can buy facebook fans / likes.
That's a waste of money IMHO. The ONLY value of this would be to impress other folks but it is NOT what Social Media Marketing is all about. The whole point of FB and Twitter is to create genuine interest by earning fans and their trust/interest in you and your products one person at a time.
This would be a red flag for any search engine. The sudden amount of new 'likes' etc would look very unnatural.
I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
I'm guessing this topic spawned from the recent Link Development topic?
Do you buy your friends?
It doesn't take a huge amount of effort. Success with FB and Twitter can be achieved over time by doing small amounts of work on a regular basis.
A better alternative would be to test some small ad runs within Facebook's own system, and target them to aim at exactly the demographic you want to reach.
