Our story continues and finds our hero embodying a common social media persona: Spam Follower. These folks “follow” you in an attempt to inflate their numbers (and, no doubt, their ego) but, if you do not reciprocate, they drop you like a very warm potato. I’ve noticed it the most with Instagram but it’s prevalent across all platforms.
Here’s another old one, back from the black and white days, and “pre-ear.” I’m still mystified as to who gets to determine when “awareness” days are scheduled and the topic for these days–or months. I pretty sure you or I could log on to Facebook and, if we had enough followers, could arbitrarily declare today to be “National Beef Jerky Day” and it would go viral.
