In its latest move, the social giant geared up to remove out all fake users, accounts and likes. TechCrunch reports that Facebook confirmed about the move. Other site, PageData shows that tens of thousands of fans were quietly disappearing from Face bookpages. The data from PageData shows that Zynga’s Texas HoldEm Poker lost 96,000 fans while Rihana lost 22,198 and Michael Jackson lost 17,591.
The company said in August in blog post regarding the same:
These newly improved automated efforts will remove those Likes gained by malware, compromised accounts, deceived users, or purchased bulk Likes. While we have always had dedicated protections against each of these threats on Facebook, these improved systems have been specifically configured to identify and take action against suspicious Likes.
