How the Like-Farming Scam Works?
Once you comment on the fake Facebook post created by scammers, pranksters and spammers, it will be shared with all of your Facebook friends, and if your friends do the same thing, it will end up and their Facebook friends’ Timeline, News Feed or Wall. And, this will continue until the post reaches thousands or even millions of Facebook users.
Cyber-criminals may also use like-farming tricks to spread malicious links to thousands of Facebook users, by tricking them into clicking on the links and downloading malicious programs onto their computers or devices.
