Technology Matters-Friend and Followers

    You're a small business or a celebrity looking to build visibility.  You're thinking more Facebook likes will show my hard work and brand is bigger than it really is.

    There are websites that will procure likes.  You pay them a fee that varies depending on how many fans you want to add.

    So, mission accomplished.  Look how many like my business or like me.

    All you've purchased is empty clout.  You'll end up with a high number of likes, but they'll be from people who don't actually like you.  They don't know you.  You bought them to boost your numbers.

    If you want a higher number of followers, fine.  But if you want people to support your business or genuinely like you, then think twice before paying for likes.

    Same goes for Twitter.  You can buy followers.

    Thanks to the website Fiverr, it's cheaper than ever.  The site lets you buy and sell products and services for five dollars.

    According to Gizmodo, you can buy fake Twitter followers for yourself and a friend. 

    Look at a Twitter account that seems to have an unusually large number of followers.  You'll find faceless eggs that are non-tweeting fakes.

    Fake followers reveals some things.....about you.  You think you're smarter than everyone else.  You're deceptive and make no apology for it.  You have low self-esteem.  You're a fraud.

    So before you go artificially pumping up your numbers remember, you're killing your credibility.
