No, I think the stall may have had something to do with a little housecleaning at the Social Network. Or maybe with the new "gifts" feature?
Last month, facebook announced it would start purging Pages of fake ‘likes’ by deleting fake accounts.
Following a cull of spammers said to make up 8.7% of Facebook profiles, some of the fb's artist pages have seen a sufficient drop in ‘likes’.
Pagedata stats reveal that Lady Gaga lost over 34-thousand of her 53 million Facebook Likes! Other popular artists to have lost out include Rihanna, who had 28,275 fblikes taken out... Justin Bieber, 27,859 fake likes deleted... Shakira, with 26,406 fake likes removed... and the purge goes on!
it MUST be satire, because what would fb be without such diversions? Speaking of which, what kind of fool records themselves committing a crime and then posts it on fb? Watch!
In other fb news, founder Mark Zuckerberg is off to Russia next week, reportedly to hold talks on innovation with Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
