    haha, 75 for 1000 is crazy overpaying

    It’s surprising to me that companies are using Facebook “likes” as a factor in determining how much to charge and pay for advertising, since it’s so easy to rig that statistic, even if you don’t use a mill like the one in this report.

    How about 800 Facebook likes on Fiverr for $5?!?

  4. Assuming anyone would pay that. Think about what 1000 likes gets you. 0 – 1 clicks per post, 10-100 “views” at best. Twitter promotions offer more value. Heck, yahoo ads and aol offer more.

    Likes on FB have about as much validity as FB’s user count of 900 + million…

    Overpriced.
