  •  It could have been robo-likers: (6+ / 0-)

    Folks in Indonesia and such being paid to "like" W. Mitt's page.  Didn't they buy a whole bunch of twitter followers?

      Actual folks from Indonesia who genuinely likes Obama would have swamped Romney's paid likes from Indonesia.

      And since Mitt turned off the credit cards, they are starting to expire.  

      The proof of this would be to examine the hourly statistics to see if they conform to the normal distribution of change per hour for Facebook users.  

      For example if Romney is losing 800-some "friends" every hour regardless of the hour of day, and there is a statistically significant difference between that distribution and the normal distribution of Facebook activity, then we can reasonably say that some of Romney's "friends" were paid-for.  

      (I could spell out the hypotheses and the tests if anyone's interested, but anyone with a grasp of basic social science methods should be able to figure it out easily.)

      We got the future back.
