E-mail followers :spam or real ?
Hi Guys !
Hope you are enjoying your first month of the year. Actually I had some confusion regarding my e-mail followers.
I am shocked to see sudden increase in the number of new e- mail followers in the last few days. They are from outlook.com. I never had such follower earlier. There is post like or comment on any of my post.
They seems to be spam or are they real genuine follower. Do let me know.
What do you say ? What should I do ?
Is there anyone who is facing this confusion ?
Daily prompt: shocked
Same here. Last 1 week I got such emails just few minutes ago outlook.com new follow. I don’t think so this is real.
So, what are we gonna do ???
I think we should remove from email list.
I’ve also received a lot of follows from Outlook emails. This whole time I’ve just assumed it was a result of posting my blog link on my Instagram feed. I don’t know that it’s spam, but in today’s tech world…I suppose you never know.
What we do then?
I’m not going to do anything since nothing seems to be occurring as a result of it. If things start glitching or strange messages/comments pop up, I would definitely worry more…
hey ! The Outlook thing got fixed. Those followers aren’t shown in my email subscribers list anymore.
Just checked. So,all doubts clear. It means they were not genuine followers.
Even I thought the same. One thing is sure that it gave us some happiness momentarily.????
Right? XD I want to hold out for the chance that it might be someone who wants to read my work. That’ll give me a moment of happiness for sure.
Just block them from your email account. I think they are spam..
Exactly! That’s a better way. I think there is no way to avoid such mails. Isn’t it.
Right! There is no point of taking any risk!?
If you’re using MailChimp or something like that and they seems to having an odd email address then they are spam, or specifically saying they are ‘bots’. Try deleting them from your mailing list.
I, myself used it once and same happened with me so I just deleted them. You’ll definitely tell if they’re spam just by looking at their email address. Thank you. 🙂
Actually it was problem with many bloggers but wordpress people have sorted out now.
Oh! Okay. Good for us then 🙂
I too have received several of these strange followers from outlook. I noticed that they are not showing up, however, on my WordPress follower list so apparently the WordPress people have figured this out. For my part, I have marked these emails as “spam”.
It happened in the past , then stopped and now again it has started. Yes , I am also not paying attention to it. Marking as spam is the only solution.
