Every Website and Blog has Follow button of different social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and much more. Website Owner/Bloggers adds this buttons because they want to update their visitors with their latest content when they publish in the future.
They do this because they don’t want to lose their traffic that’s why they offer them to follow on the social network. So bloggers or owners can reach to their visitors anytime. For example, they can easily update their visitors for a new post when they publish and visitors will visit and read the post.
Many Business use this to engage their customer in their network and update them when they launch a new product.
This is a great way to grow a blog or website. It always matters how much followers you have and how much subscribers you have?
When someone visits your blog and look at your social followers counter so it increases trust they can trust you because now they know how much big your community is?
