How to spot fake ads on social media: 7 tips

By Emily OstermanThe Washington PostOn Tuesday, a new study by researchers at The University of Texas found that people are more likely to click on ads for fake products and services if they believe the product or service has been promoted to them.

The study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, found that participants who believed they were buying a product or services were more likely than people who didn’t believe they were purchasing the product to click the link that would lead them to a site with the advertised product or product service.

The study also found that consumers were more willing to pay for these services if the ads included the name and phone number of a person they believed was selling the product.

The researchers asked 1,500 people to rate the effectiveness of six different advertisements that featured people selling products or services.

They also found evidence that people who were primed to click were more than four times more likely in that study to buy the products or service if they believed they had seen the ads.

But the study also noted that people were not necessarily more likely when they believe that they had bought the products advertised.

Instead, it found that the more people believed they actually bought the product, the less likely they were to click.

The researchers suggested that the results of the study could be attributed to how consumers are able to understand the nature of the ads, or even their motives.

Researchers suggest that this could be due to the fact that most of these products or businesses are highly targeted, and consumers are more susceptible to fake ads that they see when they are searching for products or when they try to shop for products online.

But they also note that consumers have different motivations for buying and selling products.
