Followers and Fakes


I just went through my list of followers and deleted a bunch of them.  GASP!!  Why?  Because they’re fake!!

Has anyone else noticed this?  I did a post sometime back about how bad Internet dating is.  Oh boy, you should see some of the racey followers I got from that!  I got followers from exotic girl dating sites, all different countries and I got followers from Hookup sites.

My recent posts about me buying my house has resulted in followers from several Real Estate companies.

These, of course, are spam.

It’s disheartening!

Do you remember when you reached your first significant benchmark of followers? Maybe it was 100 or 500.  For me, the first time I got really blown away was when I reached 300 followers!  I was thrilled!!

I still feel that thrill when I see the numbers grow.  But now, I question it.

It would be nice to have an accurate number.

*What’s your take on this?  You get spammy followers?  Is your follower count accurate?
