I came across something odd today. A few of my pages mentioning certain products had between 15,000 - 18,000 likes. They are gone now, but for such low traffic pages it was really surprising to see that.

I didn't notice the spike until today and since I cache my Facebook stats to a database, they lingered around for a couple of weeks. Is this some kind of new technique to make a page look popular or something? I don't get it; these recommendations are only good if you have real friends and I highly doubt these 15,000+ fakers had any friends.

Andem I think this all people can not be fake but some people who does not connected with your field then we can get traffic but can not get business.

I'm sorry, but I didn't understand a word of that. These 15,000+ 'likes' yielded absolutely zero referrals. I am sure these were not real users.

It is funny how FB seems to enjoy these fake users anyway. I think a big chunk of the user base growth that I'm sure they put in their corporate report is just that.

Anyone knows, by the way, how to make a simple Facebook like button: a custom made image button and a code underneath it that would redirect the user the same way as the regular FB like button does.
