The number of "likes" on Facebook can serve as a measurement of interest and/or popularity in a particular brand, product or personality, though there have also been reports of the "overblown importance" of likes.[8] Due to social media's role as an influential way of shaping reputations,[9] there exist companies specializing in selling "likes" from fake accounts.[10] This has caused issues for companies advertising on Facebook, due to receiving an abundance of likes (without credibility), that distort actual user metrics.[10] Facebook's Terms of Service agreement states that users are only allowed to have one personal page,[11] and it has an ongoing "war" against fake accounts.[12][13] A May 2015 estimate put the number of fake accounts at 170 million,[14] and a Symantec study in September 2011 found that 15% of 3.5 million video posts were made through fake likes.[15]
