I overheard this conversation between a group of teens girls and they were like talking about the number of "followers" that they have on tumbler . if I didn't heard wrongly , she said it was about at least 2000+ .. I believe this works the same way as facebook or so but BUT .. one girl was telling the rest how she did it . I quote , just show a few bra straps and flash a couple of cleavage and you should see the followers counter go sky high .
Wow , I for one didn't know such methods exist and somebody actually "coach" how the rest howto do it . Seriously , I am amazed at how these people go to such lengths just to get these so call "online followers" , I hope they feed her ego . If you ask me for my opinion , I would rather just have a good number of quality friends then to have thousands of fake friends who are never even there for you when you needed them . Quality people is my first priority for sure with no questions asked ,but when I put myself in that teen girl's shoe , I think there are a couple of valid points to raise up .
1) What if she is the kind of person that has low self esteem and need these "follows" to boost her spirits and confidence ?
2) What if she is just someone that wants attention ?
3) what if she is doing this , due to the size of her ego (character issues)
I am not sure about this but I think this seems to be a trend in social media , things ranging from facebook , tumblr , twitter and even youtube . If you ask me , I am really blessed with the number of awesome friends and watcher here that really looks out for me unconditionally. But what if you have a whole load of followers that follows you just because you did a strip tease on youtube or uploads like 20 photos of yourself a day just people to save them to their computer ( eye candy ) . I am not sure about this , what is your take on this one...
