[DiversityForum] Fakebook and Faketwitter Why Africa is lagging behind in having global online presence?


Fakebook and Faketwitter Why Africa is  lagging behind in having global online presence?


Fakebook and Faketwitter: African businesses and people will not  be able  to globally compete online  as long as they are not  using the opportunities available to buy Fakebook and Faketwitter fake likes and followers.


African people and businesses have low presence on  world social media platforms because they are not aware  that options exit to buy  Fake Facebook and Twitter Likes and followers online.  In Europe, mainly in UK,    most websites' social media accounts with  thousands of Facebook and Twitter likes and followers include purchased fake likes and   followers.  Facebook and Twitter are watching. They laughing at businesses that advertise  with them to  acquire  real likes and  followers. Facebook and Twitter treat these business as stupid as they did not opt to buy fake likes and followers.


They encourage  people and business to cheat because advertising on Facebook or Twitter to get real likes  and followers is expensive. It is even more expensive for businesses based in Africa. African Heads of States have been the ones  who  can afford  to  get real  likes combined with fake likes  through advertising on Facebook  and Twitter. This is because they use public money to advertise on Twitter and Facebook to get  some  real likes and followers. Then add  fake likes and followers  through buying  elsewhere.  Small and medium  African businesses cannot  afford to get real  likes through advertising on Facebook and  Twitter.


With  Facebook advertisement, one real like can cost between $1 and $2 depending on the  industry  your page belongs to.  To advertise on Twitter to get real followers, one follower cost between $2 and $4.  You are charged to be liked and followed by someone. Some people who support advertising on Twitter and Facebook claim that  fake likes and followers do not engage. But even the engagement  of  the real likes and followers acquired through advertising do not engage .

If you post a message on business page that has 1000 likes, if you are lucky only 1 person will engage and the post will reach only 10 people.


You can go to an African Head of State's twitter and Facebook account and work out how much they paid to get these likes and followers.


If businesses based in Europe are buying fake Facebook likes and Twitter Followers, why not African businesses shouldn't  do the same? You


According to WordStream" 71% of Lady Gaga's over 35 million followers are fake or inactive, along with 70% of President Obama's nearly 30 million followers".  


BBC also has used purchased online fake likes and followers as confirmed by this website: https://www.greediersocialmedia.co.uk/buy-instagram-followers/


In UK some known to be top 10 job websites have social media accounts with thousands of   fake likes and followers.


Africa seems to be behind in using this opportunity of  buying  fake social media  likes and followers .  The sites  where you can  buy  social media likes and followers are heavily advertised in Google.  Just  type " Buy  Facebook Likes", Buy Twitter likes or Buy Instagram Likes", it can take you a whole day to review all of them.


I have compiled for you some of the websites where you  can buy Facebook Twitter:

Our Vision and Services

Our vision is of a society where no one should experience discrimination on the grounds of their mental health.

Mental health problems are extremely common across society, with one in four of us experiencing them in any year. Despite being so common, people from all communities will still experience discriminatory attitudes and behaviours that can prevent people from speaking out, seeking support and playing full and active roles in our communities. The impact of mental health stigma and discrimination will vary between communities as mental health has a cultural context that affects the way communities talk about the subject and engage with people who have mental health problems. In some cultures depression, for example, doesn't exist and in others an experience of a mental health problem can be attached to a sense of shame.

For the African and Caribbean communities a key issue is the overrepresentation of young African and Caribbean men in mental health services. Misconceptions and stereotypes have led to a perception that this group is more likely to pose a risk of violent behaviour and, as a result, they are more likely to be treated as inpatients and sectioned when compared to other groups. It is well documented that this has led to a fear of talking about mental health issues more openly and a fear of using mental health services. Research by the Race Equality Foundation (2011) also highlighted fears that discrimination against Black & Minority Ethnic (BME) communities and migrant service users will increase in the austerity climate and whilst commissioning arrangements change.
