To buy likes or not to buy likes?
It's been suggested to me to buy likes on Facebook, YouTube, and followers on Twitter before I start advertising my new small business. How does this work and is it a good idea?
Hi Michellyn, in addition to all the other good advice already posted to not buy likes, here are two other reasons why it's not a good idea:
1. Eventually, it's likely you'll get caught. This happened recently when Facebook deleted millions of fake accounts. Not only did the number of fans reduce on pages that had bought likes from these accounts, but if you had paid someone to acquire all these fake fans for you, you would have lost your entire investment.
2. Depending on how aggressive the fake LIke seller is, on some social platforms you could end up with your account banned for abuse.
