Purchasing Facebook and Twitter likes

I got a call from a client the other day telling me that they had received an invitation to bulk purchase likes on Twitter and Facebook, in fact they could purchase 10,000 fans for $300!

This seemed like a fantastic idea as they would get credibility as being a well liked facility as well as developing a large network of friends. Alarm bells immediately went of in my head, as usually in business, anything that seems too good to be true usually is, so I started doing some research and found that purchasing likes may actually not be in your best interest, please review the following article for more information, Buying Facebook Fans is a Horrible Idea.

Essentially what they say is that you could bulk entice them to your site with a prize or bulk purchase them from various sites available.  They allege that if you do this it will affect your Facebook’s EdgeRank algorithm, and although that might be a big fancy word, it is not really something your want to negatively affect.

I would rather encourage you to use the traditional methods that they talk about in their article.  If you would like to know more information or you would like additional assistance with Social Media, please schedule a face-to-face, telephonic or Skype meeting with me and I will be happy to assist you with your Social Media presence.
