I did not know that an individual could BUY followers. That’s what google says. You can purchase a certain number of “followers” for the right price. That way your blog or your facebook or your instagram will LOOK like you have a ton of followers when you in fact do not. Why?!
So then google tells you it is pretty easy to see who buys their followers. For example, a blogger has 190,000 followers. Yep. There is a guy out there that does. And YET he only has 3 comments on each post and no likes but here and there. So out of 190,000 followers no more than 3 people have something to say about his blog? If they have nothing to say then why are that many following him? Because he is a LIAR!
In the real world there are so many con artists, liars, manipulators, etc. I cannot fathom the thought of someone needing to buy followers to just “look” liked. I mean if makes the person feel better? Then what number fits feeling better? 3 thousand followers? 10 thousand followers? But 190,000 followers? You’ve gotta have a serious need to be perceived as liked if you need that many fake people.
I guess what I don’t understand about buying an illusion is that it is just that…an illusion. Can’t we just have real? Anything real? Real friends? Not just “facebook friends.”
I loved my blog when I had 2 followers as much as I love it now. I love to interact with real people who have real experiences and choose to live life honestly and genuinely with integrity.
Here are to those of you who even if you only have one friend, or one follower, you embrace that!
At this point in my life I would rather be alone than have fake anything much less fake followers. Like…really?!!!!
