  • [ – ] JustHypeVibe reply I agree patience is the key to success.
    • [ – ] MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Exactly bro that's why it is best to continue making videos content consistently, daily or weekly to keep yourself active and more people who follow you will get to their routine and will automatically increase your video views through royalty.
      • [ – ] JustHypeVibe parent reply Yes being consistent is also a factor in growing an audience in your channel. And it is also an honest way to do it.
        • [ – ] MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Well said bro, I am glad I learned SEO back in spring 2015. Youtube was a useless website at the time, but was experimenting the same tactic on vidme and it word out to be better than youtube so I took that road to lead me to the right direction the amount of support that I got now is outstanding and I am glad I took a right approach to give audience what they want.
  • [ – ] SamEarl13 reply Good video, definitely is a very annoying thing to try follow for follows these days. Even if you did they definitely wouldn't click the bell to get notifications and you wouldn't either. I've only recently had someone ask me to follow them but I hope its the only time, I'd rather not have to delete comments from my videos.
  • [ – ] XGuyy reply Inactive followers are the worst
  • [ – ] Proto reply I agree with your video 100% follow for follow is definitely not cool. This website is about building a community, and friendships through interaction not by selfless effort. You have to be patient with your channel growth, it will take a certain speed, just got to be patient.
    • [ – ] MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Exactly bro and this is about building the community and friendship through interaction. Not for fame and certainly not for popularity unlike youtube has forced stupid famous shit down our throats. The only way to be successful is to always have patience and continue providing more videos for you own audience consistently that way you will get more followers in the future.
  • [ – ] xcwe4life reply It may be self advertising but we need everyone's help to reach 50 followers why? Our content is never only a few minutes long like most of the content we see on here our events go anywhere from 30 mins to a few hours but to our understanding to upload something that long you have to be verified therefore we need your help because otherwise there is no point in us being here if we cant upload our content -XCWE
    • [ – ] MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Bro I know it is hard to get 50 followers in order to get verified but only way to do that is to continue make good quality content consistently and even if some big channels can give out a shout out to the small content creators that aren't verified there own followers will help out the small content creators to grow their channel and become verified when they hit 50 followers or over.
      • [ – ] xcwe4life parent reply You see we cant upload our content because of its size as we are a wrestling org and we do events which range from 30 mins to 1-3 hours thus is why we are asking for support because there is a size limit for non verified indivuals
        • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply OK so I see you uploaded full length content that has a large amount of gigabytes well there's a problem if you're not verified you may have to upload a small length of content to get up to 50 followers and once you are verified you can upload full lengths of your content. Do what you can dude.
  • [ – ] Rex_Hydrax reply Follow4follow is very bad along with YouTube's sub4sub. All it does is give you an increase of numbers but not an audience. (Speaking of youtubes sub4sub.) Along goes with vidme. Vidme users tend to follow alot of people and new content creators here and expect us to follow back and never watch out videos killing our channel. It's completely utterly pathetic. It's not all about numbers, it's about making fresh good content. And growing and audience and engaging with them. But people who do follow4follow just ruin the experience. It's a pathetic thing to do.
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Exactly dude, both sub 4 sub and follow 4 follow are extremely pathetic, unless and a waste of time increasing numbers yes but no interaction which will lead you to the wrong direction that we have no support but dead Acconts which is pointless. The only way to get a decent amount of followers, is to keep making videos consistently, the more you do that, the more people will respect you for what you do and decide to follow you, because they are interested on what you do and it will work.
  • [ – ] Betelcrux reply I agree with you. I'm curious how it will be with this 50 followers requirement though.
    • [ – ] MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Well the only way to get 50 followers to get verified is basically the same thing, keep making good quality content in time people will be interested and follow you the you make you videos consistently the better you get a decent amount of followers that will help you to grow your channel.
      • [ – ] Arise212x parent reply Can't make "good quality" content if you are not verified. Currently I can only make low quality, short, non hd videos until I can get verified. It's ridiculous
  • [ – ] MasterX_ROB reply Wells if someone follows me I normally follow them back but I have never said (until now) that I do that but I've listened to your points and I won't follow those who follow me
  • [ – ] Narcistego reply How about when they tell you "nice vid", only to ask for a "follow for follow" right after? It's like they only complimented you to have you follow them.
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Those type of people want attention to get get more followers for themselves and then they sneakily un follow you without you noticing a thing so it's they are deliberately tricking you to get what they want even I know that.
  • [ – ] GeniusBug reply If you follow me, i'll follow you... just kidding!
  • [ – ] Trap_Luverz reply Sub4Sub or Follow4Follow really is annoying. I've seen people on youtube with 2k+ subs but like 20-30 views per video.
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Yes it is both sub 4 sub and follow 4 follow is annoying and pathetically useless the fact you end up getting less video views is absolutely ridiculous and it's no way near to reach you to the right direction. Follow for follow stinks
  • [ – ] GoMGTOW reply This means nothing to me. I follow all MGTOW because my followers are representative of the MGTOW community that I am a part of. It matters not to me if they watch my content or not, but if they do, I am humbled if they take the time or think it's worthy of an upvote. I do not post my content for profit, but more so to be a public service for all Men. I have a profound respect for my MGTOW followers, and I will continue to follow all MGTOW more so out of solidarity, than for any other reason.
    • [ – ] MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Well it's good that you got your followers for your own MGTOW Community, congratulations man, since my followers are part of the A.T. BRO KNIGHT ARMY And they are all real organic audience and I do what I can to keep engaging my Army into giving them what they want.
      • [ – ] GoMGTOW parent reply I appreciate your candor Mr. AT... Vidme is a new platform, and it's in it's infancy. I advise patience and perseverance in growing your channel, just keep doing what you love and the rest will follow. :)
  • [ – ] OrangeJuiceJones-Games reply I agree 100% Almost got caught up in that when I first started Youtube but quickly learned my lesson. Now its like if you like my content and want to follow great if you don't no skin off my back. I'm just here to have fun and make content I enjoy.
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Exactly bro if people are doing follow for follow and then stab you in the back by un following you then these people don't have nothing better to do but wasting their own time which is sad on their part.
  • [ – ] iJimUK reply Totally agree with you Mr. AT with follow 4 follow all you get is a stream of videos you have zero interest in at all and, as you said even if you have 300+ followers you will only get maybe about views. A total waist of time, time you could spend making good quality videos
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Exactly bro, always make good quality content because it will drive you to get more real followers and not a of pathetic fakers who do follow for follow which is pointless and it will not take you to the right direction, which is a waste of time.
  • [ – ] Adderite reply People are just stupid when they want "follow for follow" it just ruins the aspect of "I love your content, let me follow you to see newer content!" But nope, just some guy wanting a bigger number on his account.
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply I see what you mean, which is extremely pathetic for someone to ask to follow them just so they want to boost their channel numbers higher which is pointless.
  • [ – ] AaronDavis reply Yeah, I kinda agree. I mean if someone asks me for a follow, I probably won't, unless I find their content good and interesting.
  • [ – ] Killerpez1093 reply All of those reasons are true especially for follows
  • [ – ] ScaryStoriesNYC reply I try to follow back, why would I not? Why be stingy with follows? Can we cash them in for money? Anyone who follows our channel is our friend, why not follow your friends back?
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply You got an absolutely point bro and this is what this community is about its about building the community and making friends interacting with each other, not higher numbers figures to become big.
  • [ – ] JaitheRai reply Follow for follow is unnecessary. It's the same thing as getting a shoutout. People follow/subscribe, but after a certain amount of time they stop watching and become a "dead" follower/subscriber. Sometimes they never watch at all. Unfortunately people will continue to try F4F as long as social media exists. It's definitely frustrating, best thing to do is just ignore people that do that. Consistency and dedication is really what helps you grow.
  • [ – ] Nightwulf29 reply Completely agree. Sub4Sub is not the way to go. Organic growth is better in the long run. Good video
    • [ – ] XGuyy parent reply your spot on. Sub4Sub is a horrible way to "grow"
      • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Exactly man, it is horrible and it doesn't reach you to success in the long run just people who want big numbers and leave you in the dust, which is pathetic.
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Thanks Bro, I'm glad i took a different approach to the right direction on how to grow a channel properly without this useless follow for follow tactic which is pointless.
  • [ – ] SlayerDoesThings reply Just followed :)
  • [ – ] Naturenerd1000 reply Agreed this has been bugging me for a while. Someone that is following 2000 people is not going to watch your videos.
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Exactly bro, if my vidme channel grows in the future I will watch some small content creators videos and I will give them the spotlight they deserve
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Exactly bro, if my vidme channel grows in the future I will watch some small content creators videos and I will give them the spotlight they deserve.
  • [ – ] montolotus reply Hey MrAtAndreThomas follow me and I will follow you back! Let's support each other bro! *Obvious sarcasm is obvious*
    • [ – ] MrATAndreiThomas parent reply OK I can see you post some sort of speed art content, anyway welcome to vidme dude it's good to have you on board as part of the vidme community bro.
      • [ – ] montolotus parent reply yes, i will post some speedarts and some other weird vids in the future! :) Thank you so much!!! And just to make clear I followed you because I like your videos, not for follow4follow! :)
  • [ – ] RubenLeija reply THANK YOU! this is all over YouTube and I'm starting to see this on Vidme as well. Oh well, some people care about the width and not the depth.
  • [ – ] SubZeroAppleSauce reply Good points being made! I'll have my own video about this coming up soon.
  • [ – ] HotWithoutABuzz reply RESPECT FOR YOU BRO
  • [ – ] Smiless reply Glad to see someone else is talking about it!
  • [ – ] VGTunes reply It's not something you can really fight people will do it no matter how many rants you make it's just the way the system works.
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply My video here is not a rant video bro I'm just stating in my opinion that follow for follow is annoying for most people on this platform. Yeah its true that the people who do follow for follow don't really care what people think about it but in time, the people who do follow for follow will not achieve success at all.
  • [ – ] MysticSword reply Well said. The whole follow-for-follow (or sub-for-sub on youtube) I think is a bunch of crap and if anyone does participate it that, then you're only gaining "Followers" that don't really have an interest in you or your content and will probably never be watching any of your vids anyways. So in that regards, Followers gained via the "follow-for-follow" route is rather useless. Myself, I only Follow someone if I like their personality and content. When I have the time I will watch through some of their vids (and then I only upvote and/or comment of vids that I have actually watched through). Cheers! :)
  • [ – ] tonygreene113 reply We're doing okay here in Tampa. Too damn hot and humid so soon. 😂😂😂
  • [ – ] RandomShyte reply It is sad that this is going on but when people keep asking if Vidme is the next youtube all we are going to get is what you got on yt
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply That is indeed true bro, how matter what we do on vidme on the daily basis theres always going to be people who doing follow for follow. which is pathetic.
  • [ – ] FrostyGalaxy reply Follow for follow is one of the only negative things on this site
  • [ – ] linktheinformer reply The Red Artistic Knight is a really cool name, seriously. This follow for follow thing...it plagued YouTube. It really touches a nerve. Some really good advice there! I hope people pay attention to it and learn from your example.
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Thanks Bro even I just learned my that sub for sub is pathetically pointless the same goes to follow for follow which is useless and it will not take you to the right direction, all you have then is nothing but dead accounts that will not increase your video views and no interaction also.
  • [ – ] Timberwolf reply I agree with you, you should follow a person because you like there content.
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Exactly dude and it is best to stay active, be consistent when making videos regularly and interact with users is the right road to success.
  • [ – ] AxxL_Afriku reply been on youtube since 2011 with my first real account and have never done follow for follow. yeah, im the G.O.A.T.
  • [ – ] ImAngel reply I like your accent :p
  • [ – ] wearegods reply Second time I've seen you on the front page with a solid talk. Following for more of these little talks.
    • [ – ] MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Well I seen @smiless video ranting about follow for follow which is fairly understand how he feels about people not being interactive with the community thats why I get this of my chest also and I say follow for follow is pathetically pointless.
      • wearegods parent reply Yeah, saw his video first myself. I try to refrain from talking about this stuff on my own channel for the most part, so it's good other's are talking about it.
  • [ – ] iiMitor reply I do agree... Follow4follow is ineffective and all it does is extremely inflate your follow count. It will not gain you any devoted followers and would leave you with little to no interaction, not to mention a damaged reputation..... The best way to grow is to number 1 be consistent and number 2, interact with other creators in the community
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Exactly bro, staying active on your channel and being consistent when making videos is the way forward plus interacting with the community will lead you to success in the long run.
  • [ – ] Smiless reply Made a new hashtag for these videos! #stopf4f
  • [ – ] GabGaming reply Says the person who is verified and not dealing with the limitations of not being verified. Cool story, bro.
    • [ – ] Nyyght parent reply You don't need 50 people to be verified. I got verified with zero followers. :) Just upload a video or two and apply. It took me about 4-5 days to be verified.
      • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Yeah but due to the fact that vidme had changed there policy last week you will need 50 followers to be verified, you just got lucky Bro because you've got verified before vidme changed their policy.
    • [ – ] MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Want do you mean bro Im a verified user I'm just doing this video to state my opinion about follow for follow which is pointless.
      • [ – ] GabGaming parent reply People are only doing it to reach the 50 required to gain verified status and thus get more bandwidth and basic features other sites offer, like usage of categories.
        • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Well I been on this platform since since February 19th 2014 the same year that vidme was created in January 22nd 2014 by 2 Co founders @alex and @warran I then came back to vidme in mid September 2016 right after youtube have stupidly implemented the advertising friendly guidelines Bullshit and vidme just verified me without me applying to there application so I got mine for free, before vidme changed the policy for being verified to 50 followers.
  • [ – ] Smiless reply Thanks for putting me in the description!
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply No problem buddy I know exactly how you feel bro, I also find it annoying especially when these type of person that do follow for follow don't actually watch your content which is sad on there part.
  • tonygreene113 reply We're doing okay here in Tampa. Too damn hot and humid so soon.
  • Y2JayDoesAsia reply Years ago when I was new I tried the Youtube sub4sub thing, and even when it was new I heard what it was like. So I wrote down the usernames (and dates) of people who subbed to me. Then every week had a look at my subscribers. Most of them ubsubbed after a week or 2. And of course none of them left any comments on my vids (and I doubt they watched). Big waste of time.
  • [ – ] MassReflux reply I use to sub4sub by using a website, I regret every second of it, only follow people you like.
    • MrATAndreiThomas parent reply Same here bro I regret doing it as well but after I learned SEO back in spring 2015 I then cut doing sub 4 sub and took the right approach on how to get real and organic audience than all these pathetic dead accounts.
