[SOLVED] Do I have fake followers?

I checked my recent 100 followers, and nearly 80% have followed me from level 1, with their profile displaying one post at the most, maybe. Also, following several weeks after the initial follows, their activity remained the same: Inactive. Are these users likely using alternative/fake accounts, or do you believe they could be legitimate?

Many are passive learner, they just come for a lesson not interaction with other users. so its not "never seen" just never actally show up


I think, a lot of people lose their motivation and eventually leave the app.


In my contry's Leaderboard, some in top 10 have not even a post or a codeπŸ˜‚


Oma Falk might same happenening with many people I think

Taste but that would mean 80% of SL come... login... follow... and are never seen again.


You will attract more followers as long as you are active. With that, the longer you're active, the greater the chances are that "fake" accounts will follow you. This isn't a bad thing for you. It's a bad thing for whomever made the fake accounts, due to their intentions likely revolving around cheating or abusing some sort of feature. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just keep an eye out for unusual activity regarding specific accounts. If something fishy is found, bring it to the moderators' attention and we'll investigate.


Probably real, guess they just got a recomendation after first login. Then your profile just randomly there for them to follow


They follow you base on your post and your recent contribution to the community by solving and answering questions that's one way I gained followers. I have "NEVER" liked my own code nor comment nor ask anyone to follow me because I don't know anyone in person on SoloLearn here. But am a big follower of Igor Makarsky for his immense contribution to the platform. Am on 252 days streaks counting!


I encountered this too. But I think some users have different ways of using this app. 😊


thanks to all answers.. it is clearer now. https://code.sololearn.com/WU42pvxa150R/?ref=app


For me, I have written some codes in the app, but I have deleted a lot because they were without interest. I post and code a few because of lack of time πŸ€” BUT I'm strongly interested with what happen and I follow (and appreciate a lot) some people.πŸ˜€ I enjoy a lot SL community and I think I actually follow you , Oma ! But I need sunglasses because I have not your talent.😎

Many are passive FollowerπŸ˜„πŸ€©πŸ˜πŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒπŸ™ˆβœ…


Many enter a class, get bored and leave, do not continue with the courses.


Maybe a bugπŸ˜€


Taste but some users don't even started a one tutorial.πŸ€”


I noticed a few followers just want to have multiple people following them because I get invitations twice from a few learners. Haha.. Lol.


A 399 folowing is lol


Some of them come just for a course and do not continue for time lack, and hte others just do not care about showing off them selves x)
