Facebook on Thursday sued a Hong Kong company alleging it of baiting people into clicking on celebrities' photos and bogus advertising links, so it could install malware and run ads for counterfeit goods, diet pills and male enhancement supplements. Facebook accused ILikeAd Media International Co software developer Chen Xiao Cong and marketer Huang Tao of using improper "celeb bait" and "cloaking" practices since at least 2016.
