This has got me interested lately, after I learned that there are fan finding systems available online. This sites are used by people all around the world in order to buy fans for their facebook page. And it got me wondering, why would they do that? I learned also from reading that it is part of advertising. In order to get more people and customers to view your page and buy your products. But there's that issue involving fake fans. Fans who don't give a damn about your products but only interested in you paying them to like your page. Some of then even make fake profiles and use that profile to like that page, possibly to earn more money. What do you guys think? are you willing to buy fans, both authentic and fake ones, for you facebook fan page? Me? No. Besides, i don't have the cash to pay those people LOL!

I won't buy fans on my facebook pages, it similar to cheating yourself, since I had my friends and relatives from facebook I can introduce to them my facebook pages and tell them to spread the word, that's far more cheaper than buying fans.

This is a great idea. I like it, I can also use to spread my link :-)

yup, it's indeed a brilliant idea, my relative use to ask me to like their page, and I too ask them to like the page I created in return, since they were far away and of course has a unique IP address getting, genuine traffic is not as that hard.

haha no way. i never even cared if i have friends on my account or not so i guess that would be a big NO. I won't spend anything for fans on an online site.

I don't see the need to pay for anything like that. I am still surprised people do so.

I think I can't do it,people should like it from their heart and I don't have the capability and the money to do it too.

I will not buy fans. It is pointless. It defeats the purpose of starting a fan page. I have a fan page under my same name-arcideaco. All the fans are genuine. They are like an extra form of traffic to my articles. I started the fan page for the readership. If you buy the fans, they will not even care what you post. Cheers.

there are communities that support facebook fanpages. it like when you become a member, other members will add your page as long as you also add theirs. better than paying for it right?

No i would not buy fans for a facebook page unless I somehow made a profit off them such as link sharing/referals/subbing.

I have a fb account but I'm not much into it anymore so for me, it's just a waste of time and money.
