If that's the case, is Facebook not resourceful enough in solving this?

New Design Requires?

An intentional design or  a systemic error? May be a case of politicians who often like to say what people want to hear. Are social networking websites too adopting that, provide the Wall Street's investors figures they would like to know?

It can ask users to supply their cell number and send a verification code via sms.

@t.alex, what if the user has multiple cell numbers? Doesn't it help him to create mutliple fake accounts ?

You are right but wondering about Facebook algorithm with such anomaly with inability to detect ghost accounts.

@Wale, I agree with you. It would be hard to detect ghost accounts. I think facebook should come up solid algorithm which can do a neat job of finding the ghost accounts.

but I know a few people that do just that. The names are similar and they keep the same friends.

@pocharle, that is really funny but it definitely works because you never know which is the original account. So we can say duplicity will increase security ?

I think they should be able to detect these fraudulent clicks with pattern recognition and determining the sources of the clicks.

@Nemos

I see what you are saying but I suppose in order for this fake "Likes" strategy to work, it needs to be done in a concerted and organised effort. Therefore, all those fake IDs are probably managed by computer scripts and those scripts must be organised somehow.

As a matter of fact, since this is a business, based on the requests, the pages "Liked" needs to be programmable in such scripts.

"Last year Facebook announced that nearly 54 million of its users did not actually exist, which implies millions of the "Like" hits received by many companies could be fake."

As a total number  it sounds big but in reality those fake numbers don't change the "like" image on a page unless they  gather together and vote for a specific page (that is impossible) .

That is a good point. There are many grandparents on FB.

But my thought process is that if they can get to the site, login, and share/post content, they have a leg  up on so many people that do not even know how to use a computer.
