    Yeah, I agree. Better to leave the businesses on the pages. While it’s hard to get people to “like” something, in the end it’s worth it because they’re doing it to help you out, or because they genuinely like the product. Obviously better than pestering them with friend requests. Everyone can sniff out self promotion when they see it, for the most part.

    It’s a direct result of all the hype that’s pushing FB and other social media outlets as the next big frontier in marketing. It’ll be awhile before it dies down because it will take time for people to realize that the only ones making money are the ones selling the idea that social media spamming is effective.
