"Friends" vs "Followers"

13 New Followers... Huh?

Suddenly, new followers started to pop up every hour. Then it hit me: I accidentally linked my Instagram to my Facebook account while trying to link it to my artist’s page.

I never really wanted my Facebook friends to see my Instagram account, just my friends who would ask. My grand Instagram plan was to share things that I find interesting in the world and see how many random followers will I actually get! I can post whatever I want and no judgement from my friends would be made. No familiar eyes would be watching.

Now it's foiled. One of my friends asked, "Why don't you want any of your friends to know you have one?" I feel guilty not following them back, but I didn't want my Instagram feed to be basically the same as Facebook. However, I am actually surprised that people I haven’t talked to in years followed me. Yet, things I post on Facebook never reached anyone, resulting in a very low Klout score. I always feel like I'm fighting to speak, but I keep missing my chances.

My artist's page on Facebook, on the other hand, is where I want my really good friends to like the page. Oddly, some of my friends never even looked at it. I wonder if it was too much of a hassle or they just don't care. Probably they don't care. Now I'm just going to have to find an audience who kind of cares.
