However, lately there has been a lot of spam regarding pages, and post likes, as well as Subscriber spam.
Users are using tricks and scams to lure people in to liking pages. The famous “Alexander Torres” pages that are scattered all over the Social Networking site offer perks such as free trainers if you like their posts and pages, when you actually receive nothing at all. Another method is offering hundreds of friends requests for liking a particular post or subscribing to a particular user. They will then use another user to post a comment saying it works and that post gets lots of “Likes” too creating a snowball effect that everyone is falling for. This encourages more spam from the same person, as well as making other people see the opportunity to get their pages liked and start wreaking havoc themselves.
Another thing that is spamming the Facebook pages are the funny pics, related to Meme’s and other well known internet funny brands. These pages can be fun and non intrusive, but they manage to slide their way onto many user’s home feeds, and with many of these pages posting lots of new pictures daily, this can make your home feed absolutely full of them. The other issue with this is the horrible comments that appear to be coming from user’s on the images. It is common among these internet trends to say things that would be deemed too inappropriate in the real world. Comments that are rude and aimed at particular people are also included causing problems and negativity among the social network. Facebook does not seem to want to get involved in resolving these issues, and I would bet they don’t see it as a problem, but I have seen from experience on websites, that when you allow this to happen for long enough, everyone joins in on the bandwagon and we will see hundreds of disgraceful comments being posted on these picture posts everyday; and imagine around ten of these images are scattered down your home feed when you log in to the social site. Perhaps this will make you log straight out and in to Google+ instead.
