Why do people buy "likes?"


Recommended Posts

So I see the “I bought Facebook likes and twitter likes but they were fake, etc etc” threads a lot here on the forum, but

just simply wondering…why do people want to buy them?I don’t do twitter but I do have a Facebook account, sometimes my

friends will “like” my post, in other cases they don’t, and either way I’m cool with it.

Of course if I post a funny photo or story ( or at least I thought it was funny and was worth sharing with my friends) and

I get a “like,” yeah it’s nice, but if I don’t, not really a big deal.

So I guess the question is…why do some people want to buy them?

So let’s say I get 1000 likes. What does that do to me??? Or for me???

I mean, if I had a REALLY funny story or a photo and I got 1000 likes that’s nice, but I won’t want to buy them

because it’s not something I earned myself.

Does the number of “likes” effect their business or something???

I know it’s none of my business, but simply wondering…out loud… 😛

Ah, I see. The part where you mentioned marketing tool, that part I can get

clearly. Still people paying for it doesn’t make much sense to me, but oh well,

what do I know! 😛

BTW, I found another stone message gig which didn’t rip off your title or your

description/image, but the gig itself is pretty darn similar to yours. Then I also found

a complete description rip-off gig of that stone message gig.

So it’s a rip-off of an “inspired” gig. Strange.

Well, looking at how poor the photo and lighting quality is, I doubt

that they will get orders…

Nah, if I were you, I won’t be flattered at all.

I know I said this a million times, but being inspired is OK, but copying is not.

I mean, how the heck can you even feel flattered???

I usually look through Fiverr just to check out new stuff, and during that process

I also end up running into those annoying gigs. I just feel obligated in a strange way to notify people. Do let me know when you feel like it’s not necessary for you anymore though! 😃

There was a huge marketing black hat tip a couple of years ago that said that you need 1,000s of likes and that would help to gain more. If someone thinks your page is popular, they will follow you or join to see what it’s all about.

Personally, I don’t get it. I’d rather have someone interact with the posts. That’s the way the posts actually make money, not by the number of likes I have.
