I have liked the odd 9gag thing before.
I did not "like" this post.
Facebook are telling people I did!
That is defamatory and fraudulent.
That is both civil and criminal liability for Facebook.
Not sure what I should do.

It's simple, stop using Facebook.
Recorded delivery letter to Facebook about processing of inaccurate data, and exercising your right to object; MCoL if no change, if you have suffered distress as a result of this?ReplyDelete
Well, actually, as a result of my Blog, Facebook are investigating and think it is some sort of "clickjacking" and they are sorting it.Delete
Specifically, a clickjacking attack is one where a malicious website has something legit looking that you click on (typically an "X" on an advert) that visually hides something like a Facebook Like button, but is transparent to clicks. Thus, you click the X to close the advert, the browser forwards the click to the Facebook Like underneath, and you have sent Facebook a genuine Like for the content.ReplyDelete
Understandably, if Facebook catches people using clickjacking to generate Likes, they're liable to lose their Facebook accounts completely.
Ah possibly explains why I quite often see fb friends liking shameless commercial organisations. I have always assumed something fishy must be going on.Delete
I see this all the time with amazon.ReplyDelete
People have clicked like on amazon and then when amazon place adverts on facebook for _specific items_ it says that the person liked it.
