The Bizarre 'Click Farm' of 10,000 Phones That Give FAKE 'Likes' To Our Most-Loved Apps

Pages on social media websites are given fake 'likes' to make them look more popular by thousands of phones. Footage has emerged of a giant "click farm" that uses more than 10,000 mobile phones to give product ratings and pages on social media websites phoney "likes".
Companies reportedly pay thousands to get their apps more likes by using services like this massive plant offers. This covert clip in China shows rows and rows of like-making machines all wired to other devices in a factory. And there are said to be thousands more phones in the same building all made for the same purpose.
The footage also shows a number of workers busy on computers. Experts say digital manipulation is carried out in Russia and China but their influence is felt worldwide. One viewer wrote: "Is everything in the modern world 'fake'?"
