    Hi,
    I'm looking at this IG account that has 2.6M followers even though it is private.
    How does that work?
    They also mention "SFS kik" in their bio, what does that mean? Shout for shout something?

    Thanks

    Hello, good question, some big pages shoutout each others and they type in bio "this account accept the next 100 followers" or whatever.
    SFS kik mean if you want to do shoutout so add him kik

    I'm guessing that he would only do that with pages that have a similar number of followers, no?

    He just swapped to private account. Probably because of this thread.

    Yes.

    They put their profiles private because they tend to do SFS with multiple people daily, and they want people to follow instead of just checking out the account and seeing 80% of the content is just SFS.

    The huge accounts that do this (1+ mill) only really do it because normal growth has slowed down or died.

    I see... But if their aim is to make money from paid shoutouts etc, what advertiser would pay to be on a board where all the followers are there because of an SFS scheme?

    "SFS Kik" Means shout out for shout out on kik messenger" Rules are a LOT less strict on kik messenger.

    Also it appears that it's only Private to those that don't follow them. As soon as you follow you will see their posts.


    Their main revenue stream would be their store not paid shoutouts.
