A company emailed me about their automated Instagram tool. For a fee it would pose as me on Instagram and like other people’s posts... posts I never saw from people I do not know.
In theory those people would notice my fake likes of their posts and then click over to my account to look at my content. I am guessing that response would be rare. Unless they have bots that do that for them. Eventually it will just be a bunch of automated tools exchanging likes.
Yet another reminder not to use likes to determine the value or effectiveness of your content. Every day they are worth less and less.
