Facebook Porn & Brands Failing on Facebook

Facebook has been hijacked by Porn. Go to any Fan Page that is geared towards young men 13 to 30 and you will see many, many like this from the Dorito’s Fan Page:

Laila Wensley I’m 23 and looking for a single man for some hawt encounter I just want to spend some fun night with anyone who wants to accompany me I’m not into something serious for now, have no time and patience for a relationship for now Let’s talk in my personal page, I have chat widget installed —> http://bit.ly/cKIsYu

So how many ‘active’ users on Facebook are spam accounts? And why aren’t brands monitoring their Facebook Pages and scrubbing this? You can find this also on the Mountain Dew page. And its not just one or two posts. Its pervasive and constant. And any 13 year old can see and click.

I recently saw a Freelance Job post asking for 1000 Facebook Pages with real photos, real friends, and real high school to be created for a client…..I am sure you can connect the dots for what those accounts will be used for. So Facebook..how many of your accounts are frauds. How many of the actions from these spam accounts do you count in your numbers. And do Brands know they are being connected with porn on their Fan Pages?
