Behind the scenes, WordPress.com runs a robust spam filter that catches fake comments — about payday auto loans and pretty young Ukrainian girls who are dying to be my bride — before those comments are posted on the blog. I always check the filter, because every now and then a legitimate comment gets netted and put in the pen.
The “names” attached to these spam comments are usually things like “Ergonomic C1 al is” or “a;soif3aenr.” But today I found one that sounded both desperate and trendy: “Buy Facebook Likes.”
Note: If you think buying Likes sounds like a plausible plan to help you market your product or yourself, back away from the computer.
Better yet, read “How to get more likes on Facebook: Don’t do this.”
Go on. It’s a cartoon. Read it, and then tell me which of the creative suggestions for actually getting people to like your work is your favorite. Personally, I choose “Paint a portrait of George Washington defeating Skynet while riding atop a bald eagle.”
