    I often see celebrities, artists, actors, etc, get enormous stats blasts that aren't even possible, immediately after posting a song, tweeting, uploading a pic, or posting a music video. Also they seem to have fake obsessive fans, that act more like promoters.

    It seems like there has to be some company creating "fans" and managing them via bot, but it also seems like the the "fan" accounts are niche at times. An extra example is a HUGE mass of fake accounts that were being used to promote major label artists such as Wiz khalifa, linkin park, skrillex, etc. Making it impossible for the everyday "buy likes and reposts" service to compete. Do any of you guys know the marketing company offering these major league social services?

    Always wondered this.

    Probably a high level reputation management company with a custom solution.

    Yeah it's been bugging me, I think it's all either one or a small handful of companies too. Many famous people seem to be promoted by these drone accounts. If anyone knows and doesn't want the noobz to know PM me.

    Look at the Public Relations Companies and Management Teams of the celebs and find the connection.
    Tip, they aren't using fiverr ;)

    Interesting so you're saying it's the PR company? They aren't outsourcing to a more specialized company?

    I say this cause I remember that people here were supposedly boosting plays for the music industry, so I could imagine someone here is associated or actually owns a company that boosts social stats / interactions in this way.

    Key is, they make each individual account look real to Twitter etc..and too most unsavvy users. Perception is reality:)

    If you want to get a small glance into what goes into this type of manipulation, check out this book:

    They are using specialized services, the larger brands will use in house services, but independents will use the following types of agencies/services: (just examples)
    http://cyberprmusic.com/
    https://www.dittomusic.com/promotional-services/social-media
    http://www.amentertainment.com/digital-boost
    http://www.rantic.com/discounts/
    http://jadensocial.com/artists/

    This is the front/public service.
    Those in Music Marketing/Music Promotion have the connections for the next level, eg real looking fake fans, million plays etc.
    Obviously, you won't find those services advertised anywhere.

    looks interesting, I'm pretty familiar how this works, however my questions are with the bulk in which these tasks are done.

    Just finished reading this book 2 months ago. Definitely an eye opener. A lot of things he did offline was really creative and blackhat, lol.

    It was a great read, highly recommend it to those who are interested in learning how the media works. The same things tactics used today are the same ones used decades ago.

    The Music industry has always been pretty corrupt and Major Record Labels have all been involved in shady practices at one point or another.
    Complaints that the Charts are rigged go back to when they first started.
    Having said that, they excel at Marketing to the right demographic.
    Example, Justin Bieber, I think we can all agree that he is a talentless fool, but market him to a group of pre-teen girls and you have a cash machine that will last a decade.

    I've seen the chart gaming first hand, this website I used to work for was getting a pretty well known rapper a ton of Itunes buys.

    Before the digital age, record labels had to send clowns into the record stores to buy their artists music up, now it is much easier.
    It is massive business that is why they have organisations like the (RIAA) to protect their interests.

    Would be great if you could upload it somewhere or send it over to me - I have been trying to find it, but all links are dead (posted back in 2012)..

    Cheers

    Obviously Social media
    as you mentioned Celebs want to rock on Social media only as it has large number of people.
