Fake social media life is about to end!
Social media marketing has now become a big business out there. It as well as social media influencing has created a source of income for people with high followers and influence on social media. However, as a result of this, people have started selling fake followers and likes to prospective influencers across the social media platforms.
To combat this, social media giants, Facebook have announced that they have now started taking legal action against providers of these fake social media engagements. In a statement released, Facebook said its platform, along with its sister platform Instagram, have filed a lawsuit in the United States Federal court against 4 companies and 3 people based in China for the sale of fake accounts, likes and followers. Facebook claim that the sued companies and people promoted the fake sales not just on their platform but also on other online service providers like Google, LinkedIn, Twitter and Amazon.
Facebook hopes that by filing this lawsuit against the accused entities, they will be able to combat and show that such malicious activity will no longer be tolerated by major social media platforms.
Although this action was taken in the U.S, if successful, it could mean the beginning of an end to the era of buying fake followers, likes and accounts across all social platforms worldwide. Because if Facebook and Instagram can do it, what is stopping the other platforms from following suit?
