I am not normally one to have a rant but………..
Well, it is like this. It’s not a new thing but I have noticed it has become more prevelant of late. In the social world of instagram and twitter, numbers appear to be a game and there are those who play that game by following a person………..until they follow back…….and then they promptly unfollow.
It strikes me as a bizarre way of going about things.
If you want people to respect you and become invested in you or your mission, then why treat them like numbers?
It leaves rather a bad taste in the mouth and while you think your tactics go un-noticed they really don’t.
So I am opting out of that game and no longer auto following back. To me, a single figure followship of interactive and/or interested people has greater appeal than hundreds or even thousands of faceless numbers that I’ve had to ‘play’ into being there.
I would hazard a guess that when you get to the end of the game of life, you won’t be sitting there wishing you’d had more instagram followers ~ so if it is not a dream to die by, why live by it?
So what type of instagram or twitter user are you?
I’m simply girl who wants to share her writing.
If you’re only playing bait, then stop fishing; I’m not biting.
