On TheSocialNetworker, a commentary on the viablility of uSocial was brought up and can they justify paying their fees to accumulate followers:
They make large promises to deliver a certain number of followers in a certain number of days. At a cost. Their biggest promise is 100, 000 followers in 365 days for a minor $3,479 (normally $4,970). That is an incredible increase from an account that has no followers up to even a few thousand. The first alarm was the simple fact that uSocial themselves only have ~15, 500 followers at the time of writing this posting.
As you can see they are a paid service that offers you more followers by letting them do something with your account. My guess it automated following which many accounts can turn out to be bots. Judge for yourself, but we wanted them listed in the catalog.
