Social Suckerfish

Beware of the Poachers,

Their goal’s to ingratiate.

They come off quite charming,

Hope you go for their bait.


They seek e-popularity,

Lacking in self-esteem.

Appearing full of sincerity,

Jackyards to the extreme.


Enormous proportions,

Their inflated egos.

Approach them with caution.

Stalking? Potentially so.


Reject them, they’ll go,

And collect those around you.

When questioned, they’ll lie.

It’s the lengths they’ll go to.


Not all have bad intentions,

With the names they collect.

Good reasons, their collections.

There’s no evil intent.


Trying to make better,

Their community.

Volunteers they gather,

To help those in need.


Or just the same hobby,

Or other beliefs.

Share drama and sobs,

Find some relief.


For bad ones there’s a name.

Friend Collector Disorder.

FCD means the same,

The friendship hoarder.


So, do yourself a favor,

Web experts insist,

Protection of privacy,

Hide your friends list.

          Thank you very much! Was talking to a guy who was upset that his name got distributed and all of a sudden got traffic from people he never thought would contact him. He ended up ditching his twitter. He felt creeped out🙈

              Thanks for the advice. I will pass it along to the person I was talking to as I do not have any social media accounts. What are the games you refer to? Thanks
