A click farm or like farm is simply a business that has a business model of generating fake social media likes, followers, clicks, views, and reviews. They often are nothing more than a place with employees and thousands of smartphones that are used to generate these fake results.
This is how some businesses get their likes and reviews. In the videos, you will see both a remotely accessed bank of smartphones and the less technical method of a worker physically swiping around pages to get likes. Though Facebook can detect this, they seem to be more focused on tagging everything with COVID banners and Community Standard violations.
Regardless, the inside look into the Like Farm is rather interesting.
