Instagram has emerged as one of the best social media sites in the last few years, more and more people have joined this platform because of the variety of content it offers. It is a photo-based as well as video-based site and hence gives more opportunity. Instagram has given rise to a lot of ideas like Influencing, social media marketing, and many such things. It has become a place where people can showcase their talent and brands can come and promote their products. Everyone is in a race to gain more and more followers because it is all about getting likes and shares.
Benefits of having more followers
A lot of influencers can increase their followers and get more likes by the type of content they post but a lot of aspiring people who want to make a name in this field use unfair means to get fake Instagram followers and fake Instagram likes. Now it has become a proper business to buy and sell followers and people who are at the initial stages of their career keep on receiving messages for fake accounts that claim to pay a certain amount of followers and gain 1000 followers in just one day.
But the question that arises now is, why do people need to buy fake followers and Instagram likes and indulge in such unfair means. According to my, the reason is the eagerness to get early success without putting in much effort. More followers and likes help you in getting more recognition and the Instagram algorithm recognize you more. And the fact that fake followers lead to more organic followers because when people see such huge followers, they tend to follow your page. The same lies with likes when people see a post with more likes they like it and its popularity increases even more. According to a recent report, it is believed that of celebrities who have a crazy number of followers, half of their followers are fake. Whenever we post new content, the next one hour is very crucial for its reach so the greatest number of fake likes are done at that time. And same lies with YouTube in recent times a lot of singers have agreed that they have bought fake views and like for their videos.
According to all the things that have been said till now it can be concluded that it is not fair to get fake Instagram followers and Instagram likes and it is not only unethical but also illegal in a lot of countries because it prevents real talent from coming in limelight.
