Some companies get paid to load your Twitter account with followers, and your Facebook account with friends. This really gets my goat. First, it doesn’t take rocket science to see that the whole benefit of social media is destroyed by random people hooking up with random people for the sake of numbers! Social Media is good ONLY because it helps us find and forge relevant connections with others. I recommend that we grow slowly with REAL friends and followers and relevant content rather than dilute the whole system for the sake of web ranking, which is so transient anyway, given all the fluctuating algorithms.
