How to Instantly Have 8,082,015 Followers On Google+The one trick all the gurus aren't telling you about!
Made you look.
For those who don't know what's actually happening in this animated GIF below, I'm simply using the Inspect Element
feature of +Google Chrome
to manipulate the page and insert anything I want.

This is roughly how meaningful a follower count is without a targeted social media strategy. Worthless. Just a number on a page. Something that you can look at and feel validated (if that's what floats your boat).
This fun little joke came to me as I'm writing my next blog post for dustn.tv
about how meaningless vanity metrics can be. In that post I'll be attempting to identify what I believe to be the most
meaningful metric on social media.
