Buying Followers – What’s the point?

Who knew but apparently there are web businesses that will sell you followers for things like your Facebook and Twitter accounts.

 

I have to ask though, what the bloody point? Isn’t the whole point of social networking to connect people that have common interests, or that you at least find interesting. Selling your online identity to some marketing company that then sells them to people whose only interest is to have more followers than the next guy is a bit like selling your soul to the devil.

 

Personally I like to think that people (or the one person, thank you whoever you are) that read the stuff I have to say find it interesting or at least mildly musing. If no one reads this stuff, well what the heck, I have a bit of fun just putting it out there. At least it stops my brain from gumming up entirely!
