If you’ve never heard of a click farm, here’s a look at how one Chinese company is raking in cash by faking social media “likes”. Covert footage taken by a Russian who visited his Chinese click farm reveals how they use thousands of mobile phones to work day and night trying to fool consumers into thinking that thousands of people “like” certain products and pages on social media websites.
Companies reportedly pay thousands for this service.
The video reveals a massive operation and shows workers busy on computers as they manipulate social media with their robots, making people aware that there’s not much we can really trust in today’s society.
Digital manipulation often takes place in Russia and China, but their fake influence travels the globe.

@EnglishRussia1 Just more reason we should be teaching people to think for themselves, we have no idea what's reality anymore
