More than half of all Facebook and Twitter accounts are fake. And both Twitter and Facebook make money by selling fake “followers” and “likes.”

And both Twitter and Facebook have been repeatedly caught manipulating content to promote pro-government memes and themes.
Now advertisers are spending less and less on ads featuring social media ‘influencers.’
