Scam Alert! - How To Avoid The Pitfalls In The Bitcoin Craze

Scam alert



I am a huge lover of cryptocurrency and the benefits it could bring to every suffering family in the world. Others hate it for the same reason but that’s not the subject of this piece. I am assuming that you have at least a faint idea of what cryptocurrencies are so I will not define it here but if you don’t, a little research would help. The first, most known and most valuable is bitcoin. Currently, the value of 1 bitcoin hovers around $2,600 and $2,800 on a daily basis and has not fallen below $2,000 since July 17th 2017. Some experts believe it would rise to $3,000 by the end of this year and could rise to as high as $10,000 in about 5 years. Now, therein lays the danger! Already, several websites are springing up daily claiming to have some ‘magical powers’ of doubling bitcoins. Some go as far as promising ridiculously high weekly returns of 250%. They claim to have the ability to inject exploits into pools and blockchains. Simply put, they have the ability to exploit mining pools and blockchains probably by some hacking ability in order to mine bitcoin quickly hence justifying their ability to pay high returns on investment (ROI). Think about it, if you have the ‘powers’ to invest in personal mining technology and exploit pools to mine bitcoins at an insane speed, would you waste time inviting others on board or would you simply quietly mine away??? The nefarious activities of these websites only serve to sink the reputation of cryptocurrency and provide ammunition to the critics and those who fear the impact of this potentially life changing technology. The MT Gox episode should still be clear on everybody’s mind. Note that, by 2018, about 80%, the equivalence of 21 million of all bitcoins would have been mined already. There are a lot more people mining today than there was 5 years ago and they are using far stronger and expensive hardware. This has raised the bar in terms of mining difficulty, making it extremely difficult to gain1 bitcoin. Therefore beware of anyone promising you bitcoin doubling.


So what are these people really doing?

This is based on some background investigations, assumptions and observations but I may be wrong.

1.    Based on the information in the introduction, if we are to assume without admitting that these people are really exploiting a system to mine more bitcoins, then, they are probably hacking mining hardware/systems and directing the mining efforts of hundreds, probably thousands of machines to their benefit. They may also be hacking wallets and stealing bitcoins. Don’t forget that, in this day and age, it’s easy to hack all ‘internet of things’. That is why even Mark Zuckerberg would cover his webcam. Hacking is illegal and someday when they are caught, the websites would shut down and they will vanish with your bitcoins or earnings. On top of this, most of these websites have conditions that you must fulfill in order to withdraw your earnings and you can easily be blocked.


Test Case 1 – An Investigation

So, here’s a test I conducted using one of these websites. I was asked to just insert my wallet address and click start on a supposed online software bitcoin generator. Some progress bar appeared and run for a few minutes, then bingo, I was told my wallet has been credited with 0.1 BTC (over $200). I visited my wallet and there was nothing there so i came back to the software and found a notice asking me to send .000227 in Bitcoins (a little over $6 at the time of writing this piece) to the owners of the software for the confirmation of the transaction. Note that, it’s normal to pay transaction fees in money transfer but here’s a little bit of common sense. If you have possession of funds that you generated on my behalf, why would you request I pay transaction fees before you forward the funds to me when you can simply deduct it from what’s in your possession and forward the balance to my account??? See?? Basic!! The fees have been deliberately set at a little above $6 to make you think it’s nothing. But, think about it, if just a 1000 people fall for this every day, these criminals would be smiling to the bank at the end of every month. To top it up, they have a live chat room on the site saturated with bots singing their praises. How did I know? Well, I tested that too. I went into the room several times with different names typing different messages on the board and I kept getting the same replies. Yes, from automated bots…. They also have a persuasive narrative on the site claiming they don’t know when they would be found out for the software to be shut down by ‘the authorities’. This is intended to create an urgent effect on you to pay the .000227 BTCs, don’t be fooled.

2.    Any investment firm promising you huge daily Returns On Investment far beyond the going market rate in that industry is very likely running a Ponzi or Pyramid scheme. Basically meaning, they are taking investment from others and giving it to you based on the amount you invested (the higher the amount you invest, the higher the percentage interest gained). They are not mining!! Such a business can shut shop at any time and vanish into thin air especially in this case where cryptocurrency is not under any regulation.


Test Case 2
Scam advisor


I investigated another website offering the doubling of bitcoins, a registered website in Europe, beautifully created and professional looking website, that is. The narrative is persuasive although couched in some technical financial terms that would confuse the ‘ordinary’ person. However, there was one problem! They have blocked scam advisor (an online software used in checking the reputation of a website; you would learn more about scam advisor in the next paragraph). That’s the first red flag. Any website that blocks a reputation checking software has an ulterior motive, I suspect. Then again, a little background check from the registrar in that country proved that the website is only 1 month old and registered as offering financial investment services. There was nothing in there about bitcoins. The catch here is that bitcoin is not regulated so if they vanish with your earnings, they can’t be prosecuted. I seriously suspect a pyramid scheme here.


How to Avoid Being Scammed

A while back I wrote this piece Avoiding online scam, which I really suggest you read immediately. It’s a guide to finding the right tools online to investigate the background of every website before you give them your money or profile. Here are two main characteristics that you should spot:

a.    Making wild claims of getting rich overnight

b.    Having landing pages that lead you to sign up without showcasing the details of what the business or website is about.

Read the full guide on that article.


How To Make Real Bitcoins

1.    The only way to benefit from bitcoins without being scammed is to set up your own mining rig and store your coins on a hardware wallet or a credible virtual wallet. There are several cost-effective ways to do this by investing in energy efficient hardware. The positive news is that, top hardware and software manufacturers like AMD and Nvidia have ventured into the market with some great graphic hardwares intended for that purpose. You can mine solo or join a mining pool where you bring on your mining effort and take a share of the profit based on your contribution. However note that, solo mining bitcoin is not cost-effective anymore at this point.

2.    You can also buy, store and sell at the opportune time if you have the resources.

3.    If you don’t have the resources to do all of this, then you will have to take the hard road of doing some online work that pays in bitcoins. My favorite is Paid To Click (PTC) where you just click on ads or do surveys and get paid for it in bitcoins. This article may interest you How to make free bitcoins. You’re not going to be paid so much overnight for viewing an ad but it’s low risk if you’re risk averse. The good in it is that, you can put all your earnings together and wait for the day the price of bitcoin appreciates and then strike.


Conclusion


It’s possible that the real intentions of these new websites are good and would be clearer when they have been in business for 3 years and beyond at least. However, be wary of unreasonable promises in the bitcoin world. In the wake of the appreciation in value of bitcoins, these numerous new websites may be preying on human greed to satisfy their own. Just because you got paid on a bitcoin doubling site, does not mean there is no fraud scheme here. It only means you are one of the early birds who might have benefited. The day that the value of Bitcoin depreciates steeply or appreciates significantly is when your earnings will also vanish if you still have it with them, of course. Do due diligence and don’t fall for it. Good luck!

Working Online From Home? Here Are 5 Basic Rules To Avoid Being Scammed

Avoid Scam


Many people who desire to work online from the comfort of their homes are discouraged by the many scams floating around in cyber space. This fear is justified believe me but there are several genuine work online opportunities out there. All one needs to do is due diligence before expending with any cash. I have previously written this article (2 Free Tools That Would SaveYou From Being Scammed Online). I recommend you read it in addition to this one so that you can avoid any obvious pitfalls in this game. With this piece, I only intend to give the fingertip guidelines that one needs to hone in order to spot a scam from a distance. I shall also give you a very good review website which you can use to gauge the authenticity of websites. It all boils down to doing due diligence and being highly aware of what scams smell like so let’s get down to it.

1.    Too good to be true

If it smells like a fish, it’s a fish, believe me! Have you ever seen those edited videos that switch from people standing by big mansions with swimming pools and luxury cars, to them taking luxury cruises? Well, most of it is make believe to capture your imagination and arouse your curousity using acting, don’t buy it!! Life isn’t that easy my friend. You’ve got to work hard in the right direction and it would take time to get there. Unless you win the lottery, there’s no easy route in this game, people.


2.    Email capture with just a brief explanation of what the business is about

Don’t get me wrong, there are genuine emailing systems designed to capture emails and increase sign-ups for their clients through affiliate links. But, you need to ask yourself if it is wise to sign-up for a ‘work online’ venture without knowing the details of what they actually do. Don’t sign-up on any website that’s just designed to capture your email with just a brief explanation of what they do and where you don’t have access to their ‘About Us/About Me’ and ‘FAQs’ (Frequently Asked Questions).


3.    Disclaimers

Closely related to the video thing are the disclaimers. How many of you have ever taken the time to look for and read a disclaimer on a website. This is basic! So, you get this well crafted video, showcasing ‘highly successful’ people, who started working online just two months ago but you never read the disclaimer on the website (usually in tiny, almost invisible fonts at the bottom of the page) that is telling you that, the owners of the website or business are not responsible for any losses you incur. Note – promising instant success, yet issuing disclaimer screams high risk and danger!!! Run for your dear life!!!

 
Trust Pilot Reviews
4.    Read Reviews

This is usually the first approach most people adopt to find credible work online opportunities. The common trend is to use search engines like Google. Unfortunately many of these results that Google would generate are likely to be well optimized websites littered with favourable reviews and affiliate links. It usually consists of people selling their affiliate links without having really tested the product or a platform. This does not make it wholly reliable so let me make life easy for you and narrow it down to a website that I have found very useful. Having used it for over 3 three months I have come to really trust this website Trust Pilot.  If you’re still unconvinced after using my 2 tools to protect you from scam  and would like to see some genuine reviews, then Trust Pilot is the place to go. All you need to do is to type the web address into the search console and if there are reviews they would be generated in the results. You should also consider writing reviews there to help others if you have some experiences. What makes Trust Pilot trustworthy is that, you’re not allowed to spam-advertise affiliate links which makes the reviews genuine.


5.    Only invest what you can afford to lose

After taking these basic steps, are you fully insulated against scam? Hell no! There are many online opportunities like these Free Bitcoins where you don’t require financial investment to start but anything is still possible. That’s why it’s very important to test the waters first if you’re ever required to invest any cash, with only the amount you can afford to lose. If you have $600 and you don’t mind losing $50 to test the waters in an online venture, then fine. But if you can’t afford to lose any of that amount, don’t do it. Basic!



The whole point – view any work online opportunity as a starting point of any entrepreneurial venture. By all means, develop a product, find the online opportunities, take measured risks but remember there is no overnight success like some websites would claim. It takes long to build online credibility and it’s not easy. All in all, don’t give up. If you found this article useful, feel free to share it and share your opinions.

Where And How To Get Free Bitcoins Every Week With Speed

Bitcoin

Hey, how’s the going? I am sure by now you know what bitcoins are. Just in case you don’t, here’s a brief description. Bitcoin is a form of virtual currency with which you can purchase and pay for goods and services. It belongs to a group of virtual currencies together known as crypto-currency. There are several types of crypto-currencies like litecoin, dogecoin, altcoin and lately Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash. But, bitcoin happens to be the first and most valuable of them all. Bitcoins have peculiar units of measurement. They are BTC (Bitcoins), mBTC and Satoshis. 1BTC(1 Bitcoin) = 1000 mBTC and 1 BTC =100,000,000 Satoshis. It can be mined online using the processing power of a computer (old method) or buying a specially designed hardware with huge processing power or even buying and selling them on an exchange. You require a virtual or hardware wallet to store the currency and there are several credible exchanges online where you can change virtual currency into real cash. If you want to know more about crypto-currencies, I suggest you do some further research online.


Mining vs Trading
Before I break things down, here’s a bit of very important information. When I first wrote this piece 15th August 2016), the price of 1 bitcoin on CoinDesk was valued at $588.53, down from $600 about a week or two earlier due to a hacking incident of a bitcoin exchange in Hong Kong. Today 6th August, 2017, the price hovers back and forth between $2,600 and $3,000. So the question at this point would be, should you mine or trade bitcoins? Okay, here’s the deal! It’s believed that about 70% of all bitcoins have already been mined and by January 2018 80% would have been mined. People have actually pulled resources together to purchase ultra powerful processing hardwares purposely to mine therefore individual mining is no more cost-effective. Infact it’s considered a waste of time unless you join what is called (pool mining). How about trading? Yes you can trade in bitcoins but how wise would that be? Bitcoin has reputation issues. In some countries, it’s not been fully accepted as a legal tender

1.      Crypto-currency is still not fully developed and no one knows the direction it would take in the future.

2.      Black-hat hacking issues (Criminals hacking into exchanges and stealing crypto-currency).


These and other uncertainties tend to make the price of bitcoins and other crypto-currencies highly unstable and high risk. Therefore it would not be very wise to buy and sell bitcoins at this moment but well if you are not risk averse, you can give that a shot because experts believe bitcoin will go up to $10,000 soon. Well, you can still do it if you don’t mind the risk involved. There is a great alternative though and it’s totally free.

The best alternative (How and where to earn free bitcoins)

Okay, I know you have been waiting to read this portion, so grab a chair, sit tight and pay rapt attention. Ever heard of PTC (Paid To Click)?? This is just a way of getting paid by viewing adverts. After personally investigating and participating, I have come to the conclusion that it’s the best way to earn bitcoins for free without any hustle. All you need is about 2hrs a day or better still, if you can spare more of your time, the better. After a couple of weeks investigating online, I came up with three websites that offer these services but pay in bitcoins. Note that, this does not in anyway, necessarily mean that, these websites are faultless. It only means that by my experience, it remains the safest method to earn free bitcoins if you have the patience, that is. Afterall, there’s no risk involved except your time, electricity and internet bundle. Here’s the list of three that I consider credible.


1.      ADS 4 BTC
ADS 4 BTC

 ADS 4 BTC is my favourite. They display the real unit of BTC you receive, not in Satoshis or mBTC. Ads are delivered into your account to be viewed as and when they become available so there’s no limit on how much you can earn. Click here ADS 4 BTC to sign up. The good thing is that some of the ads come with some substantial amount of BTCs, implying also that, the amount you can earn for viewing an ad is not fixed. The only downside is that, on sign-up, you’re asked to choose the best time you would prefer ads to be delivered. Once that is done, it can’t be changed. This is very important because it makes the difference between the number of ads that would be delivered and those you might miss out on because of the set time. 




2.   COIN ADDER And FAUCET HUB

Coin Adder

Faucet Hub Payment Proof

From my experience I have concluded that Coin Adder is another good place to earn some free bitcoins. You get to earn a maximum fixed amount of 75 Satoshis and a minimum of 25 Satoshis (equivalent to 0.00000075 BTCs and 0.00000025BTCs) for every ad viewed for just 14 seconds depending on your location. The only problem with Coin Adder is that, a set of between 6 and maximum 15 ads only, are delivered to be viewed daily and that’s it. No ad would then be delivered again until the next day. If you have no time to sit around waiting for ad delivery then this is great for you. It is a sort of touch and go platform. They require that you sign up for Faucet hub to receive your payment. Not only that, you can also earn bitcoins doing similar tasks on Faucet hub  if you wish but you need it for payment vetting and approval. The beauty of it is that, you can then shift to other projects. Click here Coin Adder  and here Faucet Hub to register and start earning.  The above images display my payment proof..




If on the other hand, you’re thinking about mining? Here’s where to go - Genesis Mining. They have existed for over two years and it looks like they are here to stay. Theirs is cloud mining which is a form of pool mining (all the purchased hash power is pooled together for the mining and shared according to one’s contribution). They do the mining on your behalf with their machines. What you do is that you buy what is called hash power at a certain minimum price. Hash power is basically the speed at which you want the mining to be done for you. Have you heard about the “doubling bitcoin” craze that’s going on around the world? That’s what this is all about. You can even customize the amount you want to buy and you can also either buy with credit card or with bitcoin.  I joined recently and here’s my strategy. I use the bitcoins I earn from the freebie platforms to buy the hash power on Genesis Mining and then bingo I am off.  However, you can also buy hash power directly with cash so go ahead give it a shot and make some money right away. This is where i want to offer you some quick help. If you want to buy hash power with cash, use this secret promo code -(mj20UV)to get a discount on your purchase. Not so fast though because there is a downside.



Downside of Cloud mining


However, there’s a downside even to cloud mining that you need to be aware of. Those who had set up the hardware would require that you pay maintenance fees which include electricity, cooling, maintenance and more. The fees vary on platforms. Platforms like Genesis Mining would cancel your contract without giving you any profit if the maintenance fees exceed profits from the coins being generated by the hashpower you bought, simply requiring that, you need to invest more to buy hash power. This should tell you that, a single bitcoin isn’t easy to come by so always beware of those promising to double what you have. Before you invest it’s important to determine the profitability of the investment. This website Crypto Viral can help you do that. 


Conclusion

PTCs are great for people starting from ‘ground zero’ (no money to invest) in any online venture and in this case, earn bitcoins. Besides if you are a novice at making money online, it’s never advisable to pay and join any website that promises to make you ‘rich quickly'! It’s high risk! PTCs are a safe place to start since they don’t require monetary investment. The trick is to sign-up for 2 or 3 of such sites that are credible, withdraw earnings when you earn the required minimum and invest it in other ventures like Genesis Mining . The whole point to this is that, the $5 worth of Bitcoins you hold to today, could become $200 tomorrow. However, if you have the resources then purchasing hardware, setting up a mining rig and joining a mining pool is probably the best option of them all. The whole idea with PTC is to raise capital and invest somewhere else. Anyway, share this article if you found it useful. Feel free to comment or ask any question as well. The investigation continues!!

How To Choose The Best Clickbank Affiliate Product To Sell In 5 Minutes

 Are you a beginner digital marketer, maybe even experienced, trying to sell affiliate products from Clickbank? Do you log in to the site to find a whole ‘bank’ of different products that you believe you can easily market and pocket some daily commission? Have you created your blog or website, tweaked it for maximum search engine presence, done all the social media marketing etc., but somehow, you’re still struggling to make your first sale? Did you know, it is very possible that, you’re not picking the right product to sell, even if it’s within your passion, interest or niche? Well, unless you’re a genius marketer who can sell ice to an Eskimo, you would need some help. This short article is intended to give you a simple and basic guide to helping you pick the best product to sell from clickbank in 5 minutes, even if it’s within your niche or passion.

Of course you can go directly to Clickbank.com and pick a product to sell as an affiliate. However, the platform can be pretty complex even for experienced marketers, how much more new marketers? Infact, there’s a whole Clickbank University where how to use the platform to maximum benefit is taught, therefore, you can imagine what happens to those who can’t afford to pay for such a service. That’s where cbengine comes in handy. Cbengine offers a platform where you can quickly research the status and sales trend of clickbank products to enable you make a sound choice. It has a paid service but most importantly, it can also be used entirely for free even without signing up. Infact, you can even pick your clickbank affiliate link directly from cbengine if you so wish. I am a free user and it has really helped me in making the best choices. Visit the website and follow these steps.

Note that, in the images presented, all the notable portions have been highlighted either with a line, circle or arrow in red or yellow, therefore, they are not part of the main website content of cbengine.

1.     Paid Sponsors
How to choose clickbank the best products


Upon visiting the home page, you would find some prominent clickbank products on the first page, reaching out to affiliate marketers as indicated in the image above. These are all paid ads. As a good strategy, I do not recommend picking any of these products because they have already saturated the market but if any of them drives your interest, you can still follow the research steps I am about to show you before you make a choice. The strategy would be, to find existing products with significant growth prospects. So, how do we find them? This takes us to the next step.

2.    The Search Panel

How to choose the best clickbank product


Once on the home page of cbengine, locate the search panel on the right side. It’s in a sidebar format and has several features that would enable you pinpoint your search based on keywords and all but remember that, we want to do this in just 5 minutes so that we can quickly move on to other things. Therefore, our focus would be on the top three portions of the panel. These are, “Top Category”, “Sub Category” and “Ranked In”. In the Top Category drop down menu, leave it at ‘All’ but for Sub Category and Ranked In, choose “Top Only” and “Top 20” respectively. Do nothing else after this. Just find the search button at the bottom of the panel and click on it.

cb engine



From the generated results, click on category at the top to display the important details of the results. Now pay close attention here because this is the most important part of making the choice. Locate “Earn” and “Gravity” at the top of the results content. Which product should you choose? You can notice from the image that some of the products are offering some pretty high commissions per sale. These are worth taking a close look at. However, you need to compare the commission these products may be offering to the ‘Gravity’ of the product. So, what is the ‘Gravity’ all about? I would not bore you with the technical details of how the gravity is calculated but basically, it’s an indicator of a product’s market strength, in terms of its marketability and earnings. It measures the product’s market strength on a daily basis based on its sales and revenue from the day it was introduced therefore, the higher, the gravity, the higher, the market strength of the product. It is more or less the market growth analytics of the products. All this, does not necessarily mean that a product with a low gravity has a low market prospect, per se. It could be that the product is new. The gravity needs to be compared with the time the product was introduced before any conclusion can be drawn. This leads us to the next step.

3.    Analyzing The Results

cb engine


Once you’ve sieved through the results and decided which product to research, click on the product link for further details. As can be seen in the image above for an example, I picked a product with a gravity of 30.28 but with a negative outlook of -2.14. This implies that, its market strength had dropped a few points, probably in the past few days, weeks or months, albeit it’s paying a commission of 75%. To ensure that I am making a good choice, I would click on ‘graph’ at the top for further details.



gravity

gravity

As can be seen in the images above for our example, there was a study rise in gravity from the introduction stage in the year of 2011 but it peaked in 2014.  Since then, there has been some decline in market strength. On the other hand, the referral rate as indicated in the  graph image immediately above shows some sturdiness, which is an indication that, with the right marketing approach, a marketer can still earn some good commission by bringing in referrals. The length of time the product has existed may also prove its strength.

There you are, we’re done! Based on this simple step, you should be able to choose a clickbank product in 5 minutes. Do I have an advice on the best product to choose? Personally, I have found that products with gravities between 30 and 50 are study to market and sell. However, I have also gone for some products with gravities as low as 6 with ‘rising star’ prospects or statuses and I have been pleasantly surprised. All said and done, the ultimate decision rests with you.

‘1.65 Billion Reasons’ Why Start-Ups Should Take Facebook Seriously



468x60 #2

Facebook Stats



Hello!! Did you hear the great news a couple of weeks or so ago, the research that revealed that, Facebook had 1.65 billion users monthly in the first quarter of 2016? Check out the stats here: Facebook Stats 2016.  Are you an entrepreneur struggling to find market for your products? Do you have a website struggling for traffic, leads and conversions (sales). Well there-in lays your answer if you don’t already know. Imagine finding a readymade market of a mere 1000 of this amount of regular users every month for a product that sells at just $1.

Facebook leads and conversions



Oh yeah, you’re nodding your head right? Sometime last year, I took a break from Facebook and wrote this article Five Things I Achieved After Deactivating My Facebook Account. Do I have a change of mind? Absolutely not! What has changed is that by taking the break, I was able to discover what to actually use my Facebook and other social accounts for as a digital and social entrepreneur.  Listen, it’s all good if you want to solely indulge in social engagement on Social media. Infact, some strategic social engagement as I have broken down in this article The Uncensored Guide To Getting Massive Direct Traffic, is actually important for business success as long as it’s done with much tact and prudence. Afterall, that was what social media was created for. However, if you’re a serious entrepreneur who wants to succeed at all cost, then you should also look beyond pure social engagement.


REASONS

1.    1.65 billion Monthly users would be any search engine’s dream but the good thing is that, it’s social media so you don’t need to be found through some SEO strategy. You don’t have to be worried about messing up your website whilst doing SEO. You don’t have to worry about search engines penalizing your website based on some false suspicion that you’re trying to manipulate them. You can basically spread the word and get found by friends and friends of friends through tags, sharings and likes. This creates a chain of views and possible leads for your product or content across the world. Better still you can use paid ads to get a well targeted audience for your products.


Facebook Likes


2.    I know a lot of people hate the ‘like’ button.  I used to hate it too until I understood its real use for content and business promotion. I have seen many complaints by Facebook users to have it taken down but Facebook would simply not budge. Infact, Facebook tells you not to like something if you don’t want your friends to see it in the ‘ticker’. I know a few great relationships that have ended because of the ‘like’ button, if you know what I mean. Sad as it is, that is not the topic here. Why wouldn’t Facebook take this down? Now, this opinion is purely based on observation and hunch, not research. Facebook’s main source of revenue is through ads so they need to assure advertisers, content or product owners that there’s a feature that would ensure that their product or content would go viral if they stay on Facebook and spread the word. The ‘like’ button is one of them. How many times haven’t you been curious about something a friend liked once it appears in your ticker? Yeah, that’s what Facebook wants to happen. They want to drive your curiousity with the ‘like’ button and have you click on that link to find out what it’s all about. And how does that happen? By seeing it ‘liked’ by someone else!! That’s how virility is created with the ‘like’ button and that, I suspect, is one of the reasons why Facebook would not take it down. It also, in a way, indicates what your interests are so that they can target such products to you on the advert panel. Simply put, it’s a major feature for contents to go viral and reach a larger audience which in turn, is very reassuring to business owners and advertisers. The more people they reach, the more leads and conversion they make.

3.    Facebook’s ‘bot’, if there is any, seems to ‘spy’ on people’s search interests even outside Facebook. If you pay close attention, you would realize that, very often, you see adverts for products you might also have searched for on other search engines appearing as ‘right in your face’ ads on your Facebook newsfeed or the advert panel on the right. Yeah, they seem to ‘spy’ on your search requests outside Facebook, thereby enabling them to determine what your interests might be so that they can deliver them to you once you log in to their platform. Great for business owners, isn’t it??


4.    Finally, Facebook would not issue page warnings at will or block your usage of any of their features just because you tried to get ‘commercial’ on their network. They are very flexible with commercial activities because they know that, at some point you might want to pay to get further exposure. Infact, with all its numbers, Facebook still advertises for more users around the world. They know how to find scam accounts too and quickly delete them.


As an entrepreneur, I see Facebook in a different light now than I used to and I am getting a piece of the pie in my own way. By the way, if you want to know how to do this without paid ads, read this How To Make Your Facebook Page Go Viral Without Paid Ads.
