Many people and businesses hate the term "influencer." Especially those individuals who attach it to themselves and start demanding rather than negotiating. However, the growth of influencer marketing often means they're still getting offers they do not want. To deter them away, people have begun to voice their disapproval both online and in real life. Whether it's a humorous post on Facebook or a stingy sign next to their establishment, one thing is clear: influencers have to adapt their strategies and communication methods in order not to lose potential customers.

I love this on so many levels, so sick of being looked at like a scum because social media is not my life, I dip my toe and go. No Facebook no Twitter no Snapchat no one looking at my kids or talking about my marriage or my clothes no one openly mocking and Ridley judging me like as if I'm in a fkn dog show.... No thanks I like being me

When you have only 8k followers, you have no right asking for something for free and should just gratefully accept it if some company does want to work with you. Sure it's different when you have a million followers and an ad would reach a large number of people, but with 8k it's not worth it for any company

This sounds like some fort of scam more than a legit influencer (if there is such a thing). The grammatical errors and how the sender is trying to create a sense of urgency regarding the money being sent smacks of scam. Plus, it's not audacious enough to be a real thing. $10 is enough to make a quick scam worth your time but not enough that it'll be too hard to get people to pay.

Fry his router? Where'd it say he'd do that? I'd like a bit more background on this. Especially because the person demanding free service is bragging about his 315 followers. I have somewhere around that many FB friends and I hate people and am the definition of anti social.
