Ahhh, Social Leeches, you know who they are, right?
Let me fill you in…..If I may be so bold, fuck it, I am bold and not always so timid.
Social leeches are the ones that latch on to your Social network Feeds and want you doing everything for them while they do absolutely nothing for you in return.
Simple, they want exposure and want to do nothing to earn it for themselves. nor do they want to pay someone to do it for them..
But how can this be?
Again, Simple, they attach themselves to you, follow your feeds, jump in to get noticed, ask for a favor and once said favor is done and they’ve gained more popularity they’ll unfollow you, you can count on it. Others will just latch on suck on our teet, then raid your followers list and go after anyone of importance in their type of business or avenue and latch on to them and just keep repeating the cycle. People looking for money are the worst. Always fully investigate the Program or issue for its authenticity before donating any money.
Others will follow-back anyone who follows them just to get more numbers so it makes them look popular. Didn’t we all graduate from high school?
You can prove this theory quite simply. While your curiosity strikes you, give it a try, look at a few following lists. Not followers but following. Now, how many EGGS do you see for profile pics? BINGO!! These are bullshit accounts, they arent’ real people, these are the accounts that the “Buy , followers for $20.00” people offer. Those are bullshit accounts as well and you won’t find either in my list. I BLOCK them as soon as I see them.
To add to this list are foreign language accounts. They may follow me but if I don’t speak the language I don’t follow back because we can not interact with each other and I slowly weed them out as well.
How am I supposed to keep track of all this shit you ask?
Simple Again my friends, there are a multitude of viable programs to help you with this.
I use unfollowersme.com
Simple to use, I can keep track daily of who unfollowed me, who followed me, who has been inactive 3 months or more, who does not follow me back and who does not have a legit bio or picture etc. I use it daily. I am not in Social Media for the numbers game. My goal is easily understood, share my writing, things I believe in, pictures, movies and music I like and help others do the same. This is why social Media was created. It’s not about being worried about who has more followers than jack and Jill. Clean out your followers list on a regular basis and stay true to who you are. Remember it’s about quality not quantity.
Look, it’s simple, if you want to be legit, put up your pic and a real bio, people do pay attention to these things. I ALWAYS check out the bios of the people who follow me, it tell me a lot about the person and whether they are worthy of my follow-back.
Stand and be counted.
SPECIAL SHOUTOUT to Joe Wilson for inspiring me to write this! You are one of the Realists out there and I admire your honesty.
