Facebook itself is a major venue for ads that draw members to Facebook business pages, and targeted ad campaigns are paid by number of impressions or click-throughs. There are also countless services that offer Facebook fans in bulk for a flat fee, many of which are scams that do not deliver real people or any Likes at all for that matter. The image above is from Freelancer.com in October 2011, showing requests for "over the top" numbers of Likes. See clickjacking.
