OK so I at the app fallow all who do follow me - since I know it actually has no function I myself am not looking up for people to follow on the app… and I noticed that the number of the ones I follow is always bigger and bigger than the followers = some people who fallowed me did unfollow me after I did fallow them.
honestly, I don’t mind, because as mentioned above the followers on the app have absolutely no meaning and no function - but especially therefore I wonder why do people do this?
I mean what goes in the mind of a person who tricks others (dunno how else to name it) to get more followers this way?
Why they have a problem keeping you fallowing?
I am just asking for the psychological background of this behavior because honestly, I don’t get what is going on minds of such people - I mean do they do it because they feel great because they tricked someone?
Because it if would be just about that they want lot fallowers there is no need to unfollow people.
I mean if you look like you have more followers than people you fallow you are supposed to be more important because it creates the illusion that the followers followed you by themself because you are sooo interesting… yeah I get some might see it like this - may be the kids on the app think this way.
It must be for them then very frustrating if someone unfollows them.
yeah, but who would think you are “better” just because you have lot of followers and fallow only a few?
Even it’s true I noticed that especially the big authors who have really a lot of followers do fallow only a few - but its more on insta where it is understandable because you see the content of all you fallow so fallow thousands of your readers would end up in missing a lot of content of the people you are really interested in following.
But on the app which the fallowers have no function at all (sadly) so here it must be simply about collecting them like somebody does collect cards.
Honestly I dont have the patience to open very profile of the one fallowing me -and as you say I am not able to keep track of who is fallowing or not - tbh if they would fallow unfalow and fallow me again I will probably even not noticed its the same person for second time.
Hmm- that actually can be a motivation too - good point!
Sometimes people do even weirder things to promote their stories.
It happened to me on isnta where in DM I usually eather help people with coding or talk to fans that I got fallower and as I fallowed back (yeah I do it on insta too) I got DM in meaning “Hi love if you are interested read my story”…
I am interested if somebody would even try to open the story if it is so “pushed” in your face
