The problem with social media is that you have to be so flim flam social all the time: what with adding friends, gathering followers, compiling likes, hitting that share button … who has the time? You might say, “Well, Tim, everyone seems to, because my Facebook feed is lousy with Instagram’d pictures of feet.” Sure but what about those souls who just can’t be bothered to do all that social stuff? Those people are the target market for this site buyinstagramfollowers.biz, which is exactly what it sounds like. For just $1,800, you get 20,00 new followers!
Services like this are hardly new in the social-media world: lots of people out there offer to get your more Facebook likes or Twitter followers. But Instagram cheating seems like a new low: Is your career as a professional photographer really hinging on how many strangers “like” your photo that looks like it was shot with a crappy camera in 1978?
Here is one of the “testimonials” from the site: “My business is booming and I really have to credit buyinstagramfollowers.biz with this increase in popularity. The pricing was great and I made up for it quickly with my increase in revenue.”
Pricing starts at $90 for 1,000 followers and $1,800 for 20,000. For likes, you can get 500 for $35, or go big and pay $1,120 for 20,000 likes. The site claims it does this using real people, not bots, but that’s about as much behind the curtain as they’ll show you. Alternative: You can pay one of our writers $20 to come over and pat you on the head once a day.
