KISS' FAKE FACEBOOK #'S VS. U2?


AM I THE ONLY ONE THAT THINK'S KISS IS WAYYYYYY FUDGING THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA NUMBERS?
EXAMPLES:
+ KISS HAS AN ASTONISHING 20 MILLION FOLLOWERS ON FACEBOOK... [fb number corrected below!]
+ BUT SOMEHOW U2 HAS LESS WITH 17 MILLION?

Right...


MEANWHILE...
+ KISS HAS A MORE REALISTIC (BUT STILL SUSPECT) 4 MILLION MONTHLY FOLLOWERS ON SPOTIFY vs
+ 9 MILLION FOR U2...

Is there anyone anywhere buying this but the HELLO KITTY or DYNAMITE COMICS licensing people?

MEANWHILE PART 2:
+ MONSTER HAS SCANNED 150,000 UNITS IN 5 YEARS
+ U2'S "SONGS OF EXPERIENCE" HAS SCANNED ABOUT 300,000 in 5 WEEKS.

MATH ANYONE? If you doubt the fudge, here, check out the SUNDAY 1/28 NY TIMES story (front page) re: "BUYING ON LINE INFLUENCE..." and the phony views people are paying for.

Because U2's fans are snap-chatting teenagers still, right?

No.

Facebook likes don't surprise me. It doesn't cost anything to "like" something. After any TV appearance I'm sure someone casually clicks "like on KISS' page with no intent of ever spending a dime. I wonder how many likes the band picked up during the Family Jewels run.

Just checked U2's fb-numbers/

17 440 102 personer gillar detta (likes)

15 752 716 personer följer detta (followers)

Seems the OP's numbers (for KISS) are off a bit......

Btw, God - it's been a long time I was on facebook......might just give KISS a like to help them a bit.....

The OPs numbers are woefully off. It doesn’t take but a moment to get the correct information. Either the original intent was to deceive or a total lack of pride in the research put forth.

I was going to type this as well.

Anyone can pretend to be a fan of a band like Kiss or U2 in Facebook, Twitter, whatever, which is why I like places such as this. Wannabe fans are not likely to come here after perusing about the band for five minutes or so in Wikipedia, if only because they never were that invested to begin with.

Re: KISS' FAKE FACEBOOK #'S VS. U2?

I stand corrected. KISS are now at 12M. I like facts as much as anyone and welcome scrutiny of all of my numbers... I still think their purported 12M is a stretch. Considering Spotify, etc. Twitter seems less tolerant of fake followers, where KISS has only 1.5M. That's quite the disparity vs. Facebook!

Your use of a plural "numbers" is woefully off, dude. One number was off... feel free to challenge me on all other numbers here. I'm intentionally sharing public numbers so it's not like I am hiding anything that can't be verified (other than soundscan). I've corrected myself. and went further with a twitter comparison of 1.5 M vs 12 M. Nothing woefully off with KISS' numbers at all! :drunken:

You forget to mention that facebook has nearly 2 billion active users while Twitter has around 300 million. It stands to figure that a band would have many more facebook followers than twitter followers.

Great...I’m happy you took the time to correct yourself.

Okay...we’ll take your word for it that there was no intent to deceive.

We’ll just chalk it up to shoddy research and lack of pride in one’s presentation.

Keep going skippy. You are showing your true colors. I fixed my ONE mistake (which might not have been... keep reading). You suggested there were more. Prove it. If you bothered to pick up a newspaper you'd know the fake social numbers thing is getting real... this just in from the NY TIMES this hour: "Prominent Twitter users saw over a million followers vanish in recent days after a Times report on fake accounts prompted investigations." The FTC is actually looking into this stuff. Mock me all day long. I looked one day and could swear the number was 20M, and the next it's not. I can't prove it changed in a day, but that's what's happening on Twitter, at least. All of a sudden BOTH U2 and KISS are down TO 1.5M twitter followers. Does that sound right to anyone? It sounds low for both... even to me. It's changing in real time. If anyone is interested in what's actually happening, click here: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/201 ... tions.html

Well at least we got to the bottom of it. It said 20mil one day...you reported it correctly...and then the next day they changed it on you.

Here I was think it was shoddy research. Boy do I have egg on my face.

Re: KISS' FAKE FACEBOOK #'S VS. U2?

Are you suspicious of Taylor Swift's 70 Million Facebook followers, too? She's selling a lot of albums, in the 5-10 million range each time out, but she's got like 70 million followers!? I keep thinking that's a poor ratio of support for so many people tracking her every move. Then again, she's something to look at if you've never heard a note of hers, so maybe that 70 million is legit for the sheer spectacle. Maybe KISS is too, haha, just something to look at whether you buy the music or not - a style thing and their fame preceding them. Legendry goes beyond what they've actually done, so they can be known for just being KISS, a band that's done a lot even if you don't know what specifically. They're in a hall of fame and lots of other people like 'em and many were inspired or influenced by them. I suppose I might put a like on their page for style points and a song or two. Or maybe because they were mentioned by or appeared with somebody else I was a fan of. I figure Any KISS appearance, mention, or cover is gonna be Somebody's first exposure and that can draw more likes for being cool even if it doesn't bring album sales.
