It is not surprising considering that social media is an extension of print and online media whose survival relies on TRP ratings and network effects (readership). A few years back there was news how some of the call centers in India were being paid for number of clicks to boost the popularity of ad's on Google so that they could charge a premium from end-client. Data Credibility is therefore a reflection of the organizations value systems and moral compass. It is sadly the current business reality. Shows how technology is abused for "nefarious" purposes.
