Look, this is just like that time when you said it's impossible to spoof an e-mail. Go do your 20 minutes of research and save us all some time.

There is what, 6 comments total?
No.
I'm sorry I didn't count very thoroughly. Its hard to view the full site from a mobile device. Turns out it is 21. That definitely changes everything

Nope.

You're also missing the part where by "most" you meant "10%".

Oh so now you think Lagos is the only place that has like farms? I can only imagine what the rest of those analytics look like. Maybe you could end this by just taking a screenshot. Show all those likes that cone from countries that actually use the internet.

Also, it could be that you are right and they are genuine, which is fine by me. I just wanted to see if you had entertained the possibility. It just doesn't seem likely that your site is genuinely more popular than the old one because when you do an incognito search on google the old site is first and because I don't see random noobies here but they are aplenty over there.

No, I'm addressing your claim that most of our insights (sic) come from Lagos, Nigeria. Here, have a quote:

I did look at the page and it seems that most of your insights come from Lagos, Nigeria. Boy that sounds genuine.

They don't. We have 243 likes from Lagos. That is less than 10%.

I can only imagine what the rest of those analytics look like. Maybe you could end this by just taking a screenshot. Show all those likes that cone from countries that actually use the internet.
k:



Yes, some of our likes from Nigeria are probably not useful. Even if you slash 715 likes from us, we're at 2.2k, just about to double the other site's likes. If you decide you don't like Mexico too, we're still ahead, albeit not by much. That is assuming that all our likes from the top 2 countries are completely fabricated (n.b. they're not, we get a fair amount of shares from Mexico and we've had an ok amount of comments from Nigeria), and that all of the old site's likes are 100% genuine (which they likely are not).

Learn some SEO. Their domain reputation is pretty high, given that they've been around for 9 years. We've been consistently (and very slowly) climbing up in Google results.

Looks like click farm stats to me. By the way I know that their domain reputation is higher than yours. That was precisely my point.

So your point was "precisely" that they're an older site, and therefore your Facebook argument has nothing to do with this? Congratulations, you knew why you were wrong and you still driveled about it.

What the fuck are you talking about? I brought up SEO because the fact that it is easier to find the old site makes it seem less likely that your site is more popular than the old one.

The very claims you make, sadly. It's not my fault you're contradicting yourself so much.

I brought up SEO because the fact that it is easier to find the old site makes it seem less likely that your site is more popular than the old one.
It is, however, easier to find our Facebook page, and most of our acquisition comes from social interaction started by people who already liked the site.

Know what's funny?
I did a search on Facebook for the flat earth society.
I got only 3 pages that look like one of ours.
Two are groups.  One of which is closed.
The last is an automatically generated page.


So... What the hell are you guys talking about?

You won't be able to see most social interactions. In our case, they will usually happen on people's walls, and those are often private.

This might be a shitty argument, but it's a solidly technical one. It belongs here imho.

Its not a shitty argument. Its a worthwhile consideration that you are actually a victim of. Not all the likes are the result of it but its apparent that a large portion are.
