We just got approached to purchase 'likes' on a Social Network website we deal with...what do YOU think?
In case you're wondering, this is FTGU's opinion and ANSWER: No thanks, we will keep our money! ALL our fans are REAL and EARNED with sweat, blood and tears! Perception to industry on a social network website is useless for 2 IMPORTANT reasons: 1) Because these services exist, Industry already knows these numbers are artificial. 2) If the customer of such services (band X) makes it past point #1 and industry is really that clueless, then what is band X going to do when expected to deliver on perception?
We are sure there are better ways to spend money that is hard earned from the support of a 'real' fan base.
That is ALL.
