Thoughts on Buying YouTube Subscribers & Views

I was recently asked by a client of mine on whether he should buy YouTube subscribers and YouTube views for his new channel. When I asked him why, the reason he gave was simply because it is demotivating to make YouTube videos when you have zero audience.

Buy YouTube Subscribers for Instant Gratification

In these days of instant gratification (I want everything, right now!), you really can’t blame YouTubers who resort to buy subscribers. Afterall it is definitely quicker than growing YouTube subscribers organically. Growing 1000 real YouTube subscribers from scratch via proper YouTube intro and video SEO may take months. Buying 1000 legit YouTube subscribers can usually be done within days. The urge to buy is very attractive. Personally, I think new YouTubers who buy YouTube subscribers, buy YouTube views or even buy YouTube likes on a fresh account is ok. A little boost is not harmful to get you started. Moreover if you to buy subscribers and views from well known websites, it is unlikely for YouTube to flag your account. So it is pretty safe for your YouTube account.

1,000 Subscribers and 10,000 YouTube Views

However, once you are of a certain size, buying vanity YouTube …

Trump complains about losing Twitter Followers

It is a shame I call Trump my president. Trump today had a meeting and complained to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey that his Twitters followers are being deleted due to politics. Trump tweeted that his follower count would be “much higher” than 100 million if Twitter “wasn’t playing their political games.” Trump lost 204,000 of his 53.4 million followers in July when Twitter began purging suspicious accounts, according to Keyhole.

Twitter has been deleting fake accounts and fake Twitter followers due the widespread practise of people who buy Twitter likes and Twitter followers (eg https://www.appsally.com/collections/social-media/twitter/). This is not new has been going on for a while now, especially after the recent 2016 US presidential election meddling scandal. Trump has also accused the tech giants in Silicon Valley of spreading “hatred” against “a certain group of people who happen to be in power, who have won the election.” He tweeted in November that “Facebook, Twitter and Google are so biased towards the Dems that it’s ridiculous!”

Unlike other major executives of the U.S. tech company, Jack Dorsey had not met Trump before. He was not invited to a meeting with Trump in December 2016 featuring other major tech companies, and …

Facebook Likes to be in the Spotlight

Another day, another spotlight on Facebook. This time, FaceBook acknowledged that a recent password leak affected millions of Instagram users. It seems like FaceBook is having a streak of bad luck: political ads, leaked passwords, bots, fake accounts to buy facebook likes (eg https://www.appsally.com/collections/social-media/facebook/ ) and even outages. The exposure to the password is part of the security breach reported by Krebs on Security for the first time last month. Admitting the security blunder, Facebook said the company it had stored on its internal servers passwords of millions of users in plain text. It baffles me as to why huge Internet companies like FaceBook is storing passwords in plain text in 2019. It is just a disaster waiting to happen.

When the incident took place, it was estimated that the bug affected “ten thousands” of Instagram users. However, in an updated blog post, Facebook has confirmed that the issue has affected “millions of Instagram users.” Moreover, according to the company, it has also affected “hundreds of millions” of Facebook Lite users and “ten million other Facebook users.” However, how many millions of people were affected is not noted anywhere, but even one million is still an enormous number.
