This infographic will help you keep followers on social media. From data analytics provider SumAll, 'Stop Being a Loser: 12 Tips to Avoid Social Churn' offers useful advice on retaining numbers in your social media community and keeping everyone happy.
To keep followers, don't overwhelm your audience with redundant posts, non-stop updates or with excessive hashtag use. When responding to users, reply within 30 minutes, address them directly and don't auto-tweet or auto DM. While you shouldn't tag without permission (or #tagforlikes), you should always add sources and descriptions about where you are getting your content from. Aim for an 80% entertain, 20% sell ratio and tweet with room to reply to encourage engagement. The infographic also suggests using ideal frequencies when posting to increase interaction.
