I'm an indie fiction author looking to improve my marketing skills in preparation for the launch of my new penname. I thought it might be indirectly helpful, for the sake of social proof, to give the appearance of popularity by using some of the services in the Marketplace here to buy fans, followers, likes, retweets, etc. Mostly interested in Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
(I realize that fake fans aren't going to buy my books, of course - this is just for the sake of appearances.)
Are there any major risks associated with this, e.g. have a Facebook page, or Twitter/Instagram account, be shut down? These are accounts I would need to keep alive for long term use.
Thanks in advance for any information!
