    According to Web of Trust, it's just about as dodgy as dodgy can be. Fakes, scams and spam are not a good strategy to use in any way, shape or form.

    To add to what Stevie said, while this topic comes up all the time fake social following will not bring you results but it will hurt what you already have or build down the road... That's because social networks actively optimize what's shown and who is shown against the interactions of each page. That is to say the more people you have following you who don't interact [click/ like/ comment/ post] the less your posts show up to others. On Facebook brands see as much as 80% suppression, on Twitter it comes back in the form of follower limits, suggested followers and just outright banning [automated following is a TOS violation and is enforced].

    The bottom like is that while you really want to see bigger numbers of likes, your followers want to see content that's relevant to them. Take it from someone who has managed pages with millions of fans... the network effect comes from those who were interested, the rest just sit on the sidelines.

    I really don't think this one is up to the ethical standards. As much as possible, we should just try to carry out our web activities humane.

    This thread seems to have blown up on lift off. Thread closed.
