Is "Facebook Bot" real traffic?

    I'm getting this huge spike in "traffic" and my statcounter stats say it is "Palo Alto, California, FaceBook Bot" and nothing else.

    Is this an artificial inflation of my traffic stats? Should I set my statcounter account to not count these "impressions"?

    I realize this is probably people linking on facebook to pages on my site but I'm thinking that doesn't mean they are actually visiting my site so the stats are misleading, right?

    Thanks.
