You may have attracted fake Facebook fans without even realizing it, and those fans may be damaging your position in the news feed.
In this article I’ll show you how to sniff out those fake Facebook fans and ban them from your page.

Do you need ideas to reach your local Facebook audience?
If you’re a small business you need to localize your marketing efforts to reach your real customers.
In this article I’ll share 10 ways you can encourage your local community to find and like you on Facebook.
Why Local Facebook Fans?
If you’re a local small business, you’re likely most interested in customers in your area, not those scattered around the country or globe. While Facebook provides ample opportunity to increase brand awareness and visibility, it can reach beyond your targeted audience, costing you time and money.
When you focus your Facebook marketing efforts on your local community, you become more visible to the people you want to reach. Your interactions with your community as a whole and how you bring that relationship to Facebook establish your business as reliable, trustworthy and influential.
Do you know how to tell?
In February, Facebook announced that it had 1.23 billion monthly active users and up to 11.2% of those users are fake.
In this article I’ll tell you how to spot fake Facebook fans and what to do about them.
Fake Fans Hurt Engagement
Facebook has been actively trying to get rid of spam and phony profiles since early 2012, but like weeds, they keep coming back.
When Facebook detects spammy comments on your Page or likes from fake Facebook accounts (whether purchased or not), they remove your Page updates from the news feed. You end up losing a significant part (if not all) of your reach and engagement.
In mid-2013 and early 2014, Facebook made big changes to their news feed algorithm in an attempt to filter out spammy and poor-quality content. Pages that provide the most relevant content and have high true engagement have the best chance of appearing prominently in the news feed.

Refine Ad Targeting With Facebook Data
As Facebook continues to evolve and strives to increase profits for its shareholders, it has slowly been rolling out a variety of advertising options to deliver a better experience for its advertisers.
The crux of those efforts is offering precise demographic targeting.
In early 2013, news began circulating that Facebook was teaming up with some very powerful data giants (Epsilon, Acxiom and Datalogix) to allow brands greater access to a vast amount of audience data. These three data giants not only tap into shopper loyalty programs, but also consumer purchase habits, demographic information and a host of other options from both online and offline consumer activity.
