Have you ever heard of like-farming on Facebook? Read today’s guest post to find out how dangerous it is and how to protect yourself and your Facebook connections from it. – Elena
These days, you need to be very careful what you like and share on Facebook. While click farmers will engage in fraudulent activity with your posts and pages, they’ll also use their own profiles to engage in like-farming.
Like-farming is another type of online fraud, and it’s growing increasingly popular on Facebook. Like-farmers will ask people to like and share posts in order to quickly gain followers on a spam page that’s then flipped for a profit. You’ve probably seen these posts before, even if you didn’t realize it.
Like-farming is not only annoying, but like any fraud, it can be dangerous as well.
