Is ubuyibuy buying Likes? Do others do this as well?

Now that ubuyibuy’s Facebook page (which had 130,000+ Likes) is down, they’ve created another one: http://www.facebook.com/pages/uBuyiBuy/129669207073439 … now at 19 fans.

I clicked one of the people who liked ubuyibuy’s new page. They live in Pennsylvania. Ok, possible. But they also have liked 1147 pages. Who likes that many pages? I’m pretty active on facebook, and pretty keen to like things I actually, um, like. I’m at 189 likes.

So, is there an underground liking-ring that I don’t know about?

  1. Dear John,

    This is not uBuyiBuy’s page. I also left a comment on the page to advise people not to like the page. This is definitely a competitor trying to sabotage us and impersonate us. We are working on the issue and hope to have it resolved shortly. Thank you

  2. Dear John,

    We had brought the attention of our fake facebook page to facebook which they immediately shut down. Also, we had figured out the reason via response from facebook on why our facebook fans page was inadvertently disabled for the weekend. It was due to our profile name not matching with a real person, I wish facebook would of at least given us a warning about this. I do have to say Facebook was very quick to restore the account as they restored it once it was USA working hours. It was a very minor thing and glad it was resolved so quickly. In case anyone is interested, the email is from facebook.
