In response to the blog posts that I have attached, their advice could work - increasing the amount of people that see your pages every day is possible. It works great for advertising a company or brand or even spreading the word about an upcoming event. I have friends that post two and three times a day with barely any followers. I also have friends that post once a week with more than 2,000 followers. Granted, the amount of followers you have does not make you less of a person but whoever has more will create a streamline of networking for getting a message across.
However, there are possible adverse effects. Bullying is a major problem in younger generations - middle to high school level - and that is the age range that uses social media the most.
In my opinion, Facebook is for your parents and grandparents and aunts and uncles and second cousins twice removed. Twitter is for businesses or teens with catchy 140-character thoughts. Instagram is for a normally boring photo that you pair with a good filter and caption. All are ways to communicate and express yourself.
I can remember creating my Facebook page in the Spring Break of my sixth grade year, my Twitter in my eighth grade year and Instagram somewhere between ninth and tenth. I used Facebook almost every day and now I might post once a month. Twitter and Instagram fall somewhere around once a week.
I wouldn't call myself addicted simply because I don't use it as much as I used to but I do find myself spending extra time on it or checking it more than once a day. Some pages are made strictly for advertising and others for social networking - a blend of both is what someone with several followers needs; the more followers that someone has, the more likely it is that the message will serve its purpose.
