I've seen that video and would not consider giving facebook any money for any promotion after that. Of course this guy is a Google employee but... veritas offendi.

I assume other internet companies suffer the same fate, but maybe older companies had more time to combat this.
I remember being a big user on a "semantic" social network that is now defunct. Before it shut down (and making all user content inaccessible - with no backup mechanism in place a la Google Takeout) it was completely overrun by 3rd-world human spam farm activity, fake profiles and spam content - to the extent that its Google PageRank suffered quite a bit from it.
I wouldn't call this facebook ad-click-case fraud however. I don't know of any law prohibiting a person from clicking an advertisement without intent to buy (whether with money or time). Annoying-as-hell, yes, but... I don't know how it's even possible to protect against unwanted ad-clicks.
