All this computer hacking is making me thirsty, I think I'll "like" a Tab.

Is it really possible to be a freelance Facebook "like"-er?

I recently heard this episode of Planet Money
in which they described different businesses that pay for people to "like" things on Facebook. They mentioned a site that supplies the freelance workers who do this. I looked at the site (freelancer.com) but couldn't figure out how this might work on the worker's end. It looked like a lot of the jobs were searching for bundles of people in a specific demographic (200 likes from Brazilians living outside of Brazil, for example). Has anyone actually done this? Once you sign up as a freelancer, do you have to bid on every job you want? That seems like it might take more time than the actual "like"-ing. The podcast made it sound like you could make some decent pocket change if you did this, and I happen to have a fair bit of downtime right now.
