FIVE REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD STOP BOOSTING INSTAGRAM LIKES.
What is Instagram??
Instagram is one of the biggest social networks today, which is trending hot and going wide all over the world. Instagram is a free social networking service built around sharing videos and photos. It was launched on October 2010 on iOS first, and became available on Android on April 2012. Facebook purchased the service in April 2012 and has owned it since.
Like most social media apps, Instagram allows you to follows users that you’re interested in. This creates a feed on the homepage showing new posts from everyone you follow. You can like, love, and comment on posts.
In addition to posting normal videos and photos, which stay on your page permanently, Instagram also supports stories. If you have used twitter or Snapchat you will surely be familiar with these. Stories allow you to post videos clips also with one or more photos in a series just like in WhatsApp status. Anyone can view these for 24 hours, after which they expire.
Moreover, Instagram also supports direct messaging so you can chat with friends in private. You can also explore profiles to see what else you might have interest in. We will not be able to show you how all this works for this is not today’s topic.
NOW, LET US WORK ON TODAYS TOPIC.
Not all Instagram “likes” you see are real, not even followers. Instagram is the easiest place to cheat and get fake likes and followers. In fact, I can personally teach you a way to get minimum of 100 followers daily for free. That’s why it is the most preferable place for upcoming influencers to begin their career. Instagram has changed a lot in recent times and lots of people who use the platform for either business or pleasure has complained that it is now more difficult to gain likes and followers than it used to be before.
Below are the reasons why to boost Instagram followers seems wrong.
NUMBER 1: IT GIVES YOU A VERY BAD INSTAGRAM ENGAGEMENT.
Have you ever seen a post that has over 2k likes on Instagram only for the same post to have only 5 or 6 comments? Or you see someone with 1 million followers getting less than 1K comments or likes. That’s what is called bad engagement. There’s no way you’ll have so many people liking your post that at least 10% of them will no leave a comment. If I see such post I immediately know it’s all fake and I immediately lose interest. A place where people go to buy fake likes is called a “Like Farm.”
NUMBER 2: IT DESTROYS YOUR REPUTATION AS AN INFLUENCER
If you are an Instagram influencer or upcoming Influencer who wants to earn his living on Instagram. Your reputation is what the brands are more interested in and not really your “huge fanbase.” If you have huge fanbase its a good thing but we all know its very easy to boost Instagram followers and the companies know that as well. Imagine a brand wants you to promote a product for them. Only to discover that over 70% of your followers are fake and your likes are fake. Your reputation is already destroyed and they’ll never contact you again even if you gain real followers in the future.
NUMBER 3: IT’S VERY EASY TO EXPOSE A FAKE INFLUENCER AND SPOT FAKE LIKES
One may think that you’re being smart and no one will find out but you are totally wrong. These days it is very easy to spot someone that boost Instagram post. Imagine a Nigerian who uploads a photo or post and starts getting likes from only white people while there are little or no likes from fellow Nigerians. Automatically it means that all those likes are fake. Secondly, online tools like SocialBlade or FollowerCheck can also be used to expose any fake person on Instagram.
NUMBER 5: INSTAGRAM WILL FINALLY CATCH YOU
Oh yes, Instagram will catch up with you eventually because they know who is real and fake. The company has a strict attitude towards cheating on its platform. They encourage users to upload photos and engage fans in real-time and not use bots. If you’re lucky, they may send you a warning but if you’re not they block your account altogether. If celebrities like Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, and so on will lose millions of followers because of Instagram purge, I wonder why you think your case is special.
