Recently launched one Ad campaign on Facebook for INR 280/- Within couple of days of launching the advertisement and paying Facebook; Got 31 LIKES and around 1500 people saw the campaign. All this is GOOD and worked for me till I chose to view the profiles of the people WHO liked my campaign; this was to see what profiles like the campaign and thus how can I further launch other campaigns and to get likes like this.
I thought of seeing the profiles of last four people to get the sample; At first glance, the followers seem to be genuine. Most of them have profile pictures, cover photos, history, and activity levels. But soon found that the last four profile (sample taken) have little activity from the time those were created ; with only one person had some activity of changing the profile pictures; three of the four profiles had just liked MY CAMPAIGN in last one year.. Suspecting that those were created just to like my campaign. Fourth profile had just 58 likes; Now I am not sure if the LIKES I did not see also have similar patterns; but It seems that those will be based on the same pattern like Pal Shah; Surjo Aditya; and so on....
I am not suggesting any FRAUD here; but Facebook needs to look at the overall advertising campaign strategy.
