Whilst I’m not a natural social medial creature, I realised that as an author with books to sell, I needed to get involved.
Over recent times I’ve built up a bit of a following on the ‘T’ thing. If someone is kind enough to follow me, I follow them back providing their page isn’t emblazoned with bits of their body.
Now my question is this. Why do some users of the aforementioned ‘T’ thing follow for a day or two and then disappear as soon as I follow back? Here are a few theories:
- They want to build up their followers but don’t want their feed clogged with other people’s posts.
- They want to appear extremely popular by having far more followers than people they’re following.
- They have far too much time on their hands.
Whatever the reason, isn’t it a bit counterproductive? Or are most people more altruistic than me and continue to follow?
I have to confess to having very little time to spend on social media currently so it is highly likely that some are slipping through my net. However when I do manage to inadvertently find un-followers, I derive enormous satisfaction from removing them.
Therefore I would like to say a huge thank you to all the five minute followers for giving me an angst outlet!
And … relax with calming photo.
PS: Apologies for not engaging with all the blogs I normally enjoy.
A few aspects of life have been getting in the way but I’ve promised myself a huge catch up as things return to normal.
