    Cant think of a reason why it wouldnt be legal, and it can only be a good thing if it gets ur page viewed more and you get more subscribers etc etc.

    IMO, it's the same thing as getting lots of traffic to your site but none of them are your target audience so conversion/engagement will be very low. I'd suggest growing one's fan base naturally by offering value and cross-promoting your socials on your own site, newsletter, blog, etc.

    Running targeted Facebook ads are also a good alternative :)
