    I mainly use Instagram to be honest.

    I’m sure most of you know it’s a done thing to buy followers on these platforms.

    Not as in you have to it everyone does but there are a lot maybe 30% boosting their followings with bots.

    How do you tell who has bought a bunch of followers?

    There are a few I can tell are embellished

    There’s one guy who has seemingly bought 70k followers, he gets 90% of his comments on his video telling him he’s hot or has a huge D. I don’t know anyone in real life like that, looks way to conceited.

    How many followers can you buy before they ban your account?

    Why would you buy followers, of for that matter why would anyone care about how many people follow them? Do people compare their number of followers?

    Yes. It’s usually a sign you are respected in your field

  6. Well you can monetize your account if you have enough followers. Maybe buying followers would give you more ad revenue in return? I have like 20 friends on my instagram so I have no idea what that'd be like

    I have more than 14k. Ask me anything.

    Instagram followers aren't worth as much as before because they started filtering out posts similar to FB. They want you to pay so all your followers can see your post. Lame ass shit.

    When does the money start?

    Obviously if you have 500 followers you get nothing.

    So at what point do you start getting money?

    There's random Asian people that I'm following on Instagram who I have no recollection of manually following.

    Probably at least 100k because of the filter. Before the filter, maybe 40k. They have to be real followers too - no bots. I have a clothing line and they're all legit. It's cool when they comment on our pics and we see them at events. I don't get paid to post. We have ours so we can communicate with our supporters.

    Ok. I remember seeing someone with 100k living off it.

    I’ll try and find that again, not sure if I’m remembering correctly

    Living off 100k seems hard with today's filter. But in the end, if the post gets results (account has hardcore followers), that's the real value of the account. Not how many followers.

    You can tell someone buys followers when they have 40k followers but are only getting about 100-300 likes on their pictures, it's pretty obvious on those instances.

    there's a hack available that allows you to increase your number of 'likes' on here. but it's all dependent on your account (older accounts will yield larger numbers).

    a user paid me to take care of his, which I did - but now he's super pissed at me because he only got about 200 'likes' as a result. I explained to him beforehand that he's a 2018 user, & not to expect much of an increase. he can't say shit though, because I have his personal info via paypal.

    It makes sense to buy them when you're starting off a business account and trying to sell stuff.

    Most popular youtubers, instagramers, facebookers etc buy followers, comments and likes.

    The easiest way to tell is that they're followers or like's suddenly drop off. A lot of the accounts get banned so you don't keep all your followers for long.
    I saw an instagram account go from 30k to 20k in about a week. Also, the comments people buy are usually pretty obvious. They're usually generic "love it!" comments. But you can request personalized comments like "You're hot!" if you're that lame.
