One response to “Buying Popularity Online via USocial”

    The concept of “buying friends” is more common than most would like to admit. For example, social groups in the real world that require “dues” are, in my opinion, modeled on this same concept… Whether or not this is “cheating the community” is obviously not as clear cut as most think, and I believe in this day and age, questioning ALL forms of brand management is critical when determining the sincerity of someone’s on-line, or “real world” image.
