Genuine followers follow profile of any individual in case useful content is available on that profile. However I personally don't believe that all the profiles created on the social websites are genuine. Generally there is a trend to pretend to not being aware of fake profiles as only statistics matters. There are few individuals who pay also for inflating data about popularity of their websites. The promoters of the main stream and highly popular social websites are generally based in developed countries like US and they have employed highly paid employees for carrying out research and development. Their policies and strategies are generally not known to the common users. Generally it can be said that all such social websites are commercial ventures and their all strategies are aimed at earning profit.

I too came across such sites which puts a special condition to have certain number of followers in social networking sites. Most of the sites using social media profile like Facebook as a login option for the users. It is becoming a growing trend among new websites.

How it will benefit the sites?
1. It helps them to tackle fake profile users. Usually fake profile users won't have much followers than the normal users. It will help the sites to get real users for the website.
2. Users with more number of followers helps the site to get good page views if the users shared any post through social networking sites.
3. It will help the sites to increase their social presence.

What is your opinion on this?
I felt it is a good move by websites as the rule will benefit them a lot in various ways. On the other hand, it will put the privacy of users under risk as the website may get direct access to your profile details. Facebook has good restriction to protect the privacy of the users. But it is recommended to read the policy terms before signing up in such sites.

Followers on social media helps in many ways. If you are into digital marketing then you can reach more people and present your products and services.

Here are some of the benefits of the large followers.

1. Accounts with more followers show how much reach the person or brand has to people.
2. You can monetize such accounts with PPC and product ads.
3. People trust more for those brands with higher number of following.
4. Accounts with higher number of following and mass reach gets blue tick on their profile. Such accounts get additional benefits from most of the social media.
5. Such accounts also help drive traffic to website.
6. Such accounts also help on landing page conversion.

These are some of the known benefits of accounts with higher number of following.

My personal opinion is that the traffic from mail and the social media is important. The traffic from the Google often fades with the algorithm changes. So social media traffic has more value. And you can drive more sales and conversion by being more popular on social media.

How to get such traffic? You have to be more interesting and good with content to get more followers.
