I just read another Hub about paying people to comment on your You Tube account or Twitter account.
Yesterday I read a story about a company the will send 10, 100, 1,000 people to leave comments on your blog, Twitter account, etc. Pay up and abracadabra! Instant followers.
Buying friends and popularity. Good grief!
Then I ran across an unusual Hub page. The Hubber had made two comments, had a score of 78 and there were 534 comments on his one and only hub.
How prevalent is this stuff?
It makes me doubt the entire social networking community. Now I wonder if it even pays to join You Tube or Twitter. Is it a waste of time?
Comments on hubs don't generate revenue, ad-clicks do. The world is full of scam artists trying to beat the system.
those 534 comments may have been links to sites the writer was promoting
sounds like someone was using automated software and perhaps testing or didnt know what they were doing
unless the hub was really good and on just the right topic?
- paying to "populate" a website, youtube profile , forum etc. has purposes usually to make the brand seem successful or to make a new site seems old.
Its pretty well proven that the illusion of popularity has an effect on web visitors, no one wants to hang out in a ghost town etc..
in short - the "why" is not as transparent as "buying friends and followers"
Hmmm...what's the going rate for a friend these days? I have a couple I might want to sell. lol
if you use them right, along with Facebook, they're fine and can be helpful.
I can't speak for the other stuff (paying people to post) because I don't get caught up in that part of social networking.
I think there must be many who live their entire lives in a digital daze.
You can get a huge amount of comments if a hub becomes high traffic
I have never paid for social media traffic because social media traffic is so low value.

Does social networking bring us closer together, or further apart?While sites like facebook and twitter enable us to share vast amounts of our lives with others in an instant, are our intereactions in fact becoming shallower?

Why is there no longer an option to share Hubs on Twitter? It looks like it's been replaced with Flipboard, which seems like a weird choice.

Earlier I used to hit the tweet button as soon as I published a new Hub no matter what time it was. Not any more. I realized that timing is the key on Twitter. If you tweet in the night when most of your followers are asleep or early in the morning when they are busy with their motions your tweets...

I joined Twitter just for a laugh and I notice you can add yer hubs to Twitter straight from the "share" button on here. Any of you experienced Hubbers noticed any increase coming from Twitter ?
