    Justin Bieber's 50% Twitter Followers Are Fake


    [​IMG]

    Around 50% of Justin Bieber's followers on Twitter are fake, suggests a report which looked into social media profiles on the microblogging site.

    The 19-year-old has the most followers in the world after overtaking Lady Gaga last year. But new research claims out of his 37.3 million followers, only 17.8 million are linked to real accounts. The website Socialbakers found 47% of the singer's followers on Twitter were genuine fans.

    Nah, they're just better blackhatters than most. :D

    Talent doesn't mean anything without the right use. There are thousands if not millions of people with talents and they have nothing but the talent.

    I don't know why people are even shocked to hear news like this. We should all chuckle as the entertainment industry IS BlackHat. The sheer amounts of views and social profiles created so these entertainers CAN get booked for shows, radio, etc are fake. I actually think more like 70%+ of any top celebrity following is fake or incentive based. Like how US presidents hire people to cheer and rally for them, entertainers do the same.

    Exactly, fake followers are natural things for fake celebrities. The entertainment industry is just a large projection machine to give big corporate pushes to the selected performers of the moment. They've got the cash to do it, so it follows they employ the best in the IM business to push the performers' brand or personas online.

    I dont think they are fake though. They are just teenagers who just sign up and never upload anything but just follow Bieber because they like him, so the system thinks its a fake account

    Dane Cook using Myspace and fake college kid bloggers was the pioneer. Without it he would be a nobody.

    A bigger question is who boosted his videos a few years back to get him so many hits that Usher signed him..

    Or do you think those were all legit?

    Exactly, how do they define fake? If I create an egg account and use it for nothing but as a small news feed for interesting people and then log off and never use it again, am I a fake too then?
    In my opinion the only fake ones would be the ones created for the sole purpose of up'ing his follower count. I'm sure those exist too, but that many? nah..
