(There are a lot of forums and I attempted to place this in the right category, please relocate if necessary.) My question: It IS NOT SAFE to buy views/followers on: Facebook Youtube It IS SAFE to buy views/followers: Souncloud Instagram Twitter Do I have this right? I've read through the blackhat forums, but I'm concerned with outdated info as social media is constantly changing its policies. General Consensus of BHW: People could maliciously purchase views to get competition banned, which is why social media targets inactive accounts that aggressively follow, rather than people who buy the followers. Facebook and Youtube are the exceptions because they are monetized, and basically these companies want every dime of advertisement for themselves. Additionally Facebook monitors engagement so buying fake likes kills your ability to reach others. Please correct me if I'm wrong or append with info if needed. I'm not looking for the secrets to your success here, I just want someone more knowledgeable to stop me now if they know something I've done is gonna cause me trouble. I'll fess up: I bought a few fiverr gigs this week to boost Soundcloud Instagram and Twitter by 1-2k views (fresh accounts, currently active, slightly aged ~1yr) what level of fuckery have I caused myself down the road? I've got the same user name for all my social media and don't want to screw it up long term. Have I already? I don't mean to sound paranoid, but I wanted to consult the higher powers anyways. BHW...is the force with or against me?
