Should You Buy Social Media Followers?

Many people wonder if they should buy followers. When you search Google for buy followers you will find hundreds of pages offering to fill your twitter, Instagram and YouTube accounts with followers.  Buying Followers We created 5 brand new accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. This is what we experienced with the exception of the first one. We didn’t get scammed but that is mainly because we were able to determine they were scam or fake companies before entering our own information.  Below are the highlights of what we learned from the account we created along with other issues not relates to our test.   Scams Most alarming is the fact that it is not terribly unusual for people to say they all their friends got spammed when they coughed up their login information in hopes of being given thousands of free followers. If it’s free it’s most likely a scam. They just want your log in information so they can use it for nefarious purposes. Embarrassment When anyone that knows anything about social media sees an account with 50,000 followers and only 2 likes on their latest post they know know the followers are fake. If your  business is in social media don’t do it. It’s easy for people to check your followers with apps like Status People.  Time Consuming Fake followers is a pain in the butt. If your account is indeed filled with fakes you will quickly find your inbox filled with spam and getting rid of them isn’t easy. You basically have to go through them one at a time and delete them.  Less Engagement Yes...
