Facebook accused of massive click fraud

“Facebook advertisers are accusing the social networking company of click fraud rates of between 15% and 100% – charging them for non-existent clicks. The move follows a Microsoft civil lawsuit against alleged click-fraudsters filed last week.

Click fraud is defined as “A type of internet crime that occurs in pay per click online advertising when a person, automated script, or computer program imitates a legitimate user of a web browser clicking on an ad, for the purpose of generating a charge per click without having actual interest in the target of the ad’s link.”
