Let’s Unfollow Like a boss, shall we?

I’m tired of following people on Facebook that I have no relationship with. I’m not sure if these people are all that beneficial to me, to be frank with you. I know that I’m not the only person who holds this thought, I must add, and that’s good.

Back in the day, it was customary to accept friend requests from people we rarely knew and strangers and say, “Oh ok, I will accept you. I will have more followers, more than you… and that’s awesome.

Really? Who cares? I don’t. Do you?

Wait. What if having tons of unengaged followers isn’t awesome? What if having people you aren’t connected with makes your instagram feed clog for often? Welcoming “friends” to whom you have no relationship with in social media is literally a ticket to irreversible damage. You don’t want this, trust me.

Do this. Today, go to your instagram or Facebook and unfollow anyone you don’t know. Do it like a boss. Don’t be shy. Do the right thing. If your ambition it to grow a social media account, forget about pods and bots and focus on speaking with people. Pods and bots are artificial means to generating buzz. It ain’t worth it.

Practicing humanity is precisely what we need today in the world. We don’t need more fake followers or anything fake. IGaudit.co exposes social media importers in servings.

We need to be indispensable. Be a leader, be a source of please. Build your online network based on your actions and interactions offline. Unfollow others if necessary.

In the end of the day, the truth always wins. My advice: Unfollow people who aren’t your friend. It’s that simple.
