7 Reasons You Are Losing Followers On Social Media

7 Reasons You Are Losing Followers On Social Media (And What You Can Do About It)

You have met those follower-conscious people on social media. Can you blame them? Follower count is considered one of the metrics to see how good you are able to manage your accounts. In today’s time, the more followers you have, the more benefits you can get.

Here’s a list of probable reasons why you are losing followers:

1. You are not listening

People love talking about themselves, so pay attention to what others are telling you. Learn how to give proper criticism and thank the people who appreciate your content.

2. You are boring

A good sense of humor is likely admired on social media. Share some giggles with your followers. Be playful and creative, not dull.

3. You overuse hash tag

Hash tags are helpful when it comes to promoting your content, and many people would likely notice you. But most of the time, your followers would find it annoying when your post is flooded with hashtags especially if these are not relevant to the content.

4. You are careless.

Given that we are humans, to make mistakes is okay but only to the level of not putting others down. Think before you enter a talk.

5. You don’t update regularly

Don’t disappoint your followers for a dead feed. Give them something to look forward to in everyday. Being regularly updated is not the same with being a spam.

6. You are not being yourself

Do you tailor your style when dealing with other people on social media? It is important to be able to express yourself. Keep it real every step of the way, but be appropriate.

7. Your readers are no longer interested

Social media is not only about you. You also have to consider your reader’s interest. You can gather suggestions from your readers to know what you can do for them.

How about you?

  1. Hey you said that right. followers are attracted towards the relevancy of our interests and when we change out trends and posts interest, they bounce away and we lose followers.
    Thanks and i will always keep these things in my mind.

    • I’ve learned that it’s important to build a brand and stick on it. Not everyone will like you. But there are people who will go after you once you add great value on your entries that they find useful to them. And that’s okay. 🙂


  2. People who fish on Twitter (or any social media!) by saying they look ugly or fat. And when people reply to them, they retweet EVERY. SINGLE. THING. Ughhh.

    We have the same theme! LOL. Gotta love Sela! ❤

    • I observe different types of people on social media. It’s weird but I try to figure them out. So I understand those people who want to get positive affirmations from other people. 🙂
