    It's also great for that "perceived value" and "social proofing".

    I don't understand a lot of it either. There are, of course, the bots... but then there's just a whole flock of weirdos. I see it mainly on Flickr.

    There's droves of people who like and favorite terrible photos. And there's *tons* of terrible photos being posted constantly.

    Some of it is spam/bots/mutual benefit... but I can't help but think that there are mentally handicapped people of some sort or another who take a liking to photography. I don't know what to think.

    Think positively. You have more followers than some people. I have no followers and no account, for instance. ;)

    There's some really interesting artists on instagram. But hey, if you see an account less worth than yours to follow with thousands of likes, expect that they did buy their followers (which is useless). You know how trendy something can become ad unfortunately for us, they get all the credit.
