Firstly, I appreciate all my followers especially as my twitter, instagram and blog here are open to view by anyone…
Thank you 🙂 A majority of the time I follow back if relevant, interesting etc (not ones based on boobs and gym goers etc – porn type stuff – you probably know what I mean 😂) and occasionally I may not have realised I have missed genuine followers (more below).
So – I have an app for instagram and twitter that tells me what’s what so I know and can rectify. I got the app because when I first started out I noticed a massive surge of followers then the next day or within days lost loads! I was curious….
From this, I’ve noticed there are some followers who follow then unfollow within a very short period. I feel used for their numbers but have learnt to deal with that. Whatever. Goodbye!
But what really gets me is the ones who’s bios say they are interested in mental health – e.g advocacy, service user movements, helping people with MI, specialise in MI areas (like trauma, addiction, abuse, certain mental illness), support groups… yet they unfollow.
Why? Is it because they are more interested in themselves by getting out there? Do they not realise they are perpetuating the very thing they’re arguing/standing up for?
I find it annoying but sometimes hurtful. Am I being oversenstive? I just find it fake.
What’s your thoughts? Do you find this?
