BuzzFeed News: The Hot New Facebook Grift Is Taking Over Huge Pages About Celebrities And Films Using This Clever Technique. “Interest pages are auto-generated by Facebook from interests that users list in their profiles. They typically have no formal connection to the person or thing they’re about and don’t have humans managing them. But even though no one is actively managing them, popular interests can still attract millions of fans. In total, BuzzFeed News found more than 100 stolen pages for celebrities, books, films, religions, and generic interests such as ‘love’ that were taken over through this technique. These pages have more than 55 million likes. As of this writing, Facebook has removed 21 of the pages.”
