    Read this article from the New Republic if you want to understand the Buchwald/Stern/Ostrosky grift.

    ...See how easy it is to purchase black-market influence on the Internet: 1,000 Facebook likes for $29.99; 1,000 Twitter followers for $12...

    These are your Beth Stern online fans. Paid Philippine click-farmers.

    1,000 Facebook likes for $29.99; 1,000 Twitter followers for $12; or any other type of fake social media credential, from YouTube views to Pinterest followers to SoundCloud plays. Social media is now the engine of the Internet, but that engine is running on some pretty suspect fuel.

    She starts by entering the client’s specifications into the website Fake Name Generator, which returns a sociologically realistic identity: Ashley Nivens, 21, from Nashville, Tennessee, now a student at New York University who works part time at American Apparel. (“Ashley Nivens” is a composite based on Casipong’s standard procedures, not the name of an actual person or account.) She then creates an email account. The email address forms the foundation of Ashley Nivens’s Facebook account, which is fleshed out with a profile picture from a photo library that Braggs’s workers have compiled by scraping dating sites. The whole time, a proxy server makes it seem as though she is accessing the Internet from Manhattan, and software disables the cookies that Facebook uses to track suspicious activity.

    Does Beth know her followers are fake or is Howard just amusing his simpleton whore wife?

    I want us all to wear jump suits . They look pretty comfortable . Plus they have a lot of pockets.

    Most other "celebrities" have other celebrities following them. Does Beth have anyone of note following her, other than Stern related assholes or Katie Lee Joel type Z listers. Paltrow or Madonna aren't following her? Don't they know she's a bestselling author?

    This the like and comment #'s are roughly the same no matter what she posts. That doesn't usually happen.

    Her followers are just as real as her career as a top European model - a few years ago she pretended not to have anything to do with fake followers:
