Social media users that follow to unfollow, you’re lame!

**BE SOCIAL THEY SAY**

I’m about to rant right now, because with this new blog comes a new IG and of course I get these irritating followers that unfollow if you don’t turn around and follow them right back. Sorry, but I’m just not that into you or your content, let alone this game that you play. If you’re not down with my posts and don’t genuinely want to follow the account, then what’s the point of trying to scam a follow out of me? Seriously, this is probably one of the lamest tactics ever and if you do this, then there’s a pretty good chance that I’d hate the person you are anyway, so it’s a good thing that I didn’t follow you back to begin with lmao! Really, though, what a waste of time and a damn good way to make certain that people absolutely detest you.

Do people truly believe that no one will notice and even if they do, that they will be like, “you know what, that was hella uncool, but I’m down for your misleading ways and you’ll probably mislead me some more, so I think I’m gonna keep following you even though you’re a shady motha.” I hope not, but unfortunately some people just won’t notice and will get used like a bath towel, and I just can’t help but be infuriated by this. I find that to be so low, immature and desperate.

If this isn’t an actual person behind the physical method of following then unfollowing, perhaps you paid for some bot action, some AI, but that to me, makes the account holder even more lame. I blogged before blogging was ever a thing and would never once have thought about paying for followers. Seriously though, I am from the Bay Area (Silicon Valley); my parents had one of the few ISP companies around at the time (think late 90s – early 2000s, so we were one with the Internet hype, so to see all of the fake stuff out there just gets to me. I guess with all of the technological advances comes the disingenuous. I really wish I would have held on to my blog, but I didn’t, so it is what it is. My loss, but I have to vent because really? Girl, bye!
