  • Forcing people to LIKE you Facebook page in order to view your website, unless it is a result of bad coding, is a shameful, vile, immoral, and disgusting tactic. If u want to have a loyal following base then fix this issue otherwise people are not going to be spending much of their effort or time on your low quality site.
