StartUp Limited Run say in their experience YES!!
New York-based online music startup Limited Run has ditched Facebook after its research revealed an alleged advertising scam. The company claims that 80 percent of its online ad clicks on Facebook were generated from automated ‘bots,’ not humans.

Lets keep in mind ” No publicity so they say,[whoever they are] is bad publicity!” So moving swiftly on!…
I started reading this over on http://www.mediapost.com/publications/article/179962/most-facebook-ad-clicks-come-from-bots-start-up-c.html? and shared on Google+1 too, collegues from the online community substantiation required…
I’d left a comment over one the Media Post post
“Interesting post thanks for sharing, is there any substantiation to go along with it or any other possible explanation for your experiences? As you say 80% is high bot ratio!… through the roof really! To this end I’m wondering if other people are experiencing the same issues, or have the same doubts.” :o)”

London 2012 Olympics: Athletes rebel at social media crackdown

See on Scoop.itGo Mobile Social Local Today | GoMoSoLo

Olympic athletes today united in an online rebellion against a social media clampdown which bans them from posting pictures thanking their sponsors.

” I’m so happy that Social Media users will not conform to silence instructions.!  :o)
This is an especially ill thoughtout instruction given the well covered news items in the UK with regard to the tax breaks offered to Official Olympic Sponsors. It seams very mean to try and prevent the athletes from thanking their sponsor. Some of these people have just one sponsor and it is sometimes just a small local business backing these champions simply because they have known them growing up. Pffft!” Sadie
