Facebook 'likes' and adverts' value doubted

BBC : A BBC investigation suggests companies are wasting large sums of money on adverts to gain "likes" from Facebook members who have no real interest in their products.

The story is too old to be commented.

I only like companies I know and actually like. Once that happens, the second they post a spam "status" or something useless, I delete it or block it.

Also "Earlier this year Facebook revealed that about 5-6% of its 901 million users might be fake - representing up to 54 million profiles. "

How is that number not any higher? I don't know of a single person with a Facebook account that either 1 Doesnt use it, or 2 has SEVERAL fake accounts. A majority of them are for stupid games that need 50 friends. My GF has 6 accounts alone.....

Also I've seen my friend create programs for fake accounts and spam, he even got in trouble for it. Its amazing how easy it is. Build a fake page, fake profile, and get thousands of them going within an hour.....
