Do you ever get a lot of comments and Likes from a follower on social media that you have no idea who they are and how they became your follower? I do and sometimes it drives me a bit nuts. I’m talking about nice comments and friendly interactions, but you just don’t really know WHO is that person. I like to have some kind of frame of reference, a picture in my mind , of who is talking to me and sometimes that is not possible when you accept friend requests from people you don’t know in real life, which I do on Instagram and Twitter and occasionally on Facebook. Am I the only one who actually thinks of ‘followers’ as real people and is curious about them?
I mostly reject accounts that are simply trying to add to their follower count and I have a Private account on IG so you must request to follow me. I don’t want to admit that I don’t know who they are, so sometimes I will do a little detective work. They might be a random person I friended due to common interests in running or hiking, or they might be someone I met at a race or through a friend. Hopefully they are not a potential stalker or bot. I do appreciate the love on my posts.
So whoever you are , thanks for Liking and Commenting on my posts and being so nice! If I do know you in real life, please forgive the brain fart. Keep up the positivity and kindness! You’re awesome. 🙂
Jesus, Peace, Love, and Running Forever!
