If you have just joined any of the social networks and are worries that you don't have any followers or let's say as friends.. Then you don't have to worry at all.
Because, friends come if you interact with them, that's how you make friends right..? With that said, you just have to follow them on whatever social platform you are, to gain more friends...
The more friends you follow, the merrier you get. So take that as a keypoint, and that method works, not instantly, but with time, you can see the results for yourself..
I'm telling it because i didn't even expect to have 22 followers but now i do. Why? Because i have followed some of them and they followed me back. That's the use of being social.
