soundcloud - followers question??

I continously get soundcloud notices in my email stating that people are adding and following me but when i go to the actual site to view my profile none of those people are reflected on my 'followers' list. Is there a reason for this? - has anyone else experienced this? - do i need to upgrade my membership or something? thank you again for the help???

yeah that does happen, probably bots or some other kind of spam, its quite annoying actually, especially when you follow the person back out of courtesy and then poof, they disappear

Re: soundcloud - followers question??

Also note that soundcloud is having some syncing issues at the moment. So comments might appear delayed to everyone - or you see someone is following you because the count is higher, but theres no orange notification yet.

Re: soundcloud - followers question??

I've picked up a dozen or so followers in the past week and my soundcloud has a couple of 15second gitchy things on it that anyone could make in 5 minutes. The whole follower thing is overrated. Just people fishing for followers in return. Some of the music is pretty good though

Re: soundcloud - followers question??

The problem i experience is people that follow, and wait a few days, then unfollow you...probably because i dont follow them back cuz i dont know who they are, and dont have time to bother with them. I just think its silly how some of these trolls play the game. Its all tit for tat...no real interest in the music, just this obsession to get as many followers as possible in hopes to get big, or at least look like they are.

Another thing i noticed on many of the Electro Bass forums i mainly frequented, even on Facebook, is that people will not comment on your stuff, unless you comment on theirs. That, i really hate!

Why are people like this? I notice its mainly artists that do it. How come fans dont comment much? Maybe that would help the situation, so that the interest in our music is real, and not with this "hidden agenda".

Re: soundcloud - followers question??

Is there a bot for this?

If not, these people got way too much time on their hands following 2000 people.

Re: soundcloud - followers question??

I keep getting notifications that the same guy has started following me. He's obviously following so many people he can't remember or doesn't care who he's followed already. Every time he does it he goes down in my estimations. At this point he's just whacking his head against the stone floor of my estimations.

Same happens to me. Pretty annoying if you ask me.

if i was going to do it i wouldnt just aimlessly follow people. the sensible thing to do would be to find an artist very similar to yourself that has lots of followers and just go through and follow all of their followers. i would imagine that takes 10 minutes

Re: soundcloud - followers question??

Most of my followers are spammers, dey just following people to get followers themselves. Since the cap for following is 2000, they have to unfollow some so they can follow someone else :p

i usually look on their profile. i make hip hop but the amount of house/electro/trance producers that do the 'fake follow' thing is staggering. if they make house and follow 1750 people with 200 followers i dont even listen to their music

"And remember kids: You are an artist if you're following less people than you got followers"

Some people seem to think this is really it.
