Fake Facebook, Twitter and YouTube clicks are big business
Celebrities, businesses and even the US State Department have bought bogus Facebook likes, Twitter followers or YouTube viewers from offshore “click farms,” where workers tap, tap, tap the thumbs up button, view videos or retweet comments to inflate social media numbers.

Facebook has begun rolling out an update to the publisher box where users can make status updates and share photos. Now users can drag and drop image files into the box to quickly share one or more photos from their News Feed or Timeline.
