Lately, I have been noticing something more and more on facebook, and to be honest I think it is irritating a lot of people not just myself. I have been seeing many bloggers pull that “If I can get so many likes and so many shares I will post a new giveaway”… First off, unless this “giveaway” is sponsored by them, they have to post it anyways, and the longer they hold off on posting it the more irritated the sponsor will get.
Another one I have noticed is “Can you please like this post is you see it, many people have been stating they can not see my facebook statuses” hmm maybe because they have this part of your facebook on ignore, because of all the lame “like this and I will post a giveaway post”
And don’t forget the “can you please click the link and tell me if you can see it, I am having trouble seeing the post”
Come on bloggers! Are you that desperate for clicks and likes… I know you get paid by the page load and all but by misleading your readers, and the companies that pay you for the page loads, is so damn tacky.
I am almost to the point where I will be hitting the unlike button, because if you need 750 likes, and 250 shares to post a giveaway that 20 bloggers have already posted… then you are just wasting my time.
If you are a blogger that does any of the mentioned things in the above, you may want to rethink before you hit the send button. You obviously new what you were doing to get your readership/facebook fans up there. Don’t watch them all fall back to nothing because you got greedy.
So a little advise from me to you, and it is FREE… Be yourself, and stop conning people into liking/sharing your posts. If it is a good post it will get liked and shared on its own.
