    Wonderful Information mate. Specially SEO guys who want to do Social Media and don’t understand this kind of rules. They just want visitors by what ever ways. This will really help FAN Page Admin to stop this kind of activity.

    We have a huge problem on our FB page from one particular spammer who likes our page, spams several times, then unlikes it. This makes the report button disappear. Unless I can catch her right at that moment I can not ban her. I have reported her personal page to FB but I know they don’t really care. I just want her banned from our fan page. Any ideas?

    Hey Nikki
    This is one of the situation I have never faced myself.. I suggest report it again to Facebook team and they will take care of it.

    I have a strange question. I have a facebook fan page for my metal music blog. and I’ve looked at some of my “fans” and some look like the last type of people that like metal music. so why did they “like” my page in the first place? for example, I have one fan, I looked at his profile, and under his fave music, he’s got all rappers listed. I just find it odd.
