Wow, it didn’t take long for the Facebook mafia to step and squash all the LIKE assistance apps on the market. It was only a month ago I reported on a new kind of application that helps Facebook starter sites get some kind of grounding by getting them LIKED based on liking other sites back. This if of course helps one to meet that dreaded “25 LIKE” quota so that new Facebook sites can properly establish a decent “username” (aka vanity URL) such as: http://www.facebook.com/SimpleInbound
This previously working site is called Twiends. It’s premise was pretty simple and served a NEEDED function that new sites struggle with. Though all good things come crashing down and Facebook killed Twiends LIKING app. Shortly after (and word got out) onliners were turning to Twimates which also got squashed. So in typical online fashion, a forum discussion began in several sectors which made mention of some helpful alternatives.
Yep, you guessed it! Squashed, squashed, squashed.
I had given up hope and found 1 small straggler that still seemed to work. Per this article, that site WAS called earnlikes.com.
A week later, app wasn’t killed, but INSTEAD the whole DOMAIN was taken down. What gives!!!
Now I don’t need to write an article to point out that Facebook is really killing their own market. FB users will get fed up and jump on the next big thing that arrives…..remember MYSPACE???? Facebook, quit before its too late! Kill your app killing bots and embrace the freedom aspect that keeps folks even interested in being a part of you in the first place.
