Paying for "Likes"

WSB in Atlanta has seen their Facebook "Likes" grow at a very fast rate. 

WSB has over 700,000 "likes" on FB and the number continues to grow.

But, the station is using a pay for play ploy to get people to click like. 

Just how is WSB getting artificial "Likes"?

They are doing it by taking out these cheesy sponsored ads asking folks to 'LIKE' firefighters, police, and paramedics.

The "Like" is not for the subject, it is for the gain of the TV station. You "Like" their page, without even realizing it. 

So basically, WSB is buying their friends.

How sad is that?
