How many followers/likes does it take to get to the center of attention?


Get Likes for Instagram, Like4Like, Magic Liker for Instagram, 5000 Likes Pro are free apps that will allow Instagram users to get more “likes”.  What is the point?

I am new to Instagram.  I have an account but I don’t post much just yet.  I follow some Instagram accounts and “like” pictures and videos because I genuinely like them.  I think they are interesting and fun, so, I truly enjoy them but why would anyone want to falsely get likes?

Instagram is used by many people to share photos of their everyday adventures and it is supposed to make you feel excited about sharing your activities with people in your community or your friends.  If someone has a lot of likes it makes them feel popular but who wants to have fake friends?

A lot of businesses use Instagram to market their companies.  When pictures are liked, your account gets more exposure and the amount of followers is linked to how many people know about your business. If your company has a large following, it will drive traffic to your website, which can result in increased sales.

This reminds me of the 80s Faberge’ Shampoo and Conditioner commercial, when Heather Locklear tried the shampoo, “it was so good that I told 2 friends about it, and they told 2 friends, and so on, and so on…”, That is old school liking.

But I digress.

Being that Instagram is the fastest growing social network according to MediaPost, it makes sense that companies would download the apps to get free likes to reach potential customers globally.  Some of the likes from the free apps are computerized but, so what?  The purpose is to grow your followers.  People will like the photos or follow your account just because of the high number of likes or followers there.  There must be something of value.  People will follow.

There are other ways to Increase the amount of your Instagram followers.  Check out Forbes magazine’s article, 50 Free Ways to Increase Your Instagram Followers,


This article sure caught my attention with almost 2 million views.  It must be very informative with that enormous number.  I am now following Forbes on Instagram.
