Facebook Announces Victory Over A Spam Operation After Six Months Of Combat by admin: 11:12pm On 4 Apr
Facebook proudly announced today that it
has — it thinks — put an end to the nefarious
doings of a “sophisticated,” “coordinated operation”
that has been spamming the site for
the last six months.
In a blog post, Facebook’s security team suggested the “inauthentic likes” came
from accounts in “Bangladesh, Indonesia,
Saudi Arabia, and a number of other countries.” That narrows it down!
Actually, it sounds pretty smart: The accounts would appear,
like a few pages, spam
them, then fall silent.
Proxies and other means were taken to
make it seem that these fake accounts
weren’t centrally administrated — which,
of course, they were.
As far as volume, the post scrupulously avoids real numbers:
As we remove the rest of the inauthentic likes,
we expect that 99% of impacted Pages with more than 10,000 likes will see a drop of less than 3%.

If you can figure out
what that means, feel
free to comment below.
What about the fake likes and accounts removed before now?
How many pages were
affected? Are pages with fewer likes affected less, or more?
Are there other networks currently being fought in similar
ways, and, if so, what
kind of drops should we
expect when those get
rolled up?
No doubt this is good
news for everyone, but
I can’t help but get the
same feeling from Facebook here that I
get from Twitter when
it dances around the numbers of bots and
spammers on its network. The numbers
will be high, of course,
but even if they’re within reasonable limits, no user or investor likes to hear that there are 10, 20 or 100 million fake accounts or likes.
The dismantlement of
this particular network
comes hot on the heels
of an announcement by
the company earlier this
week that it was stepping up its efforts against spam and fake
news.
