  • This was a very informative article and I believe that the facts found are really reliable I mean with the boost in social media I really don't see an end to users clamoring to achieve online popularity of some fashion. Many users don't have the patience to build strong quality relationships on these sites because many users today are shallow and are hardly interested in hearing something or even following someone they don't know and if they don't know them the best chance at getting a follow is to entice them to follow you by having a large number followers. Today some form of a Follower Increase is almost essential to ones success online. You measure your own success so if buying followers gives you the feeling of success then who's to say that you are unsuccessful. Just a Thought! Great blog and great topic. http://www.followerincrease.com

  • Outstanding, intelligent presentation on socializing 'smart'! When Yats! started following me on Twitter, I was intrigued by their business model. Thanks for sharing documented social media marketing strategies that work! Here's a presentation I put together for social media marketing newbies about a year ago. http://www.slideshare.net/LolaMcIntyre/web-20-marketing-strategies-for-the-rest-of-us-presentation
