These computer programmed Facebook accounts are used for inflating certain number of likes on Facebook pages for branding.
Facebook has announced saying, We will take out even the fake likes generated by spammers, malware and black marketers. Pavan Varma said, “How does and advertiser today is treating a Facebook page? It is treated as a place where they just come with a number of people who are seen there. This is not the correct way of doing it” .
