First of All Idk what "Advertise" Is doing there. My sims isn't and never has been in the social media career.

Second of all this makes no sense! She only has 1,514 followers, but she looses hundreds of thousand more that she has. 

Lastly a sims with a few thousand followers who reaches a certain charisma level has to create social media profile still? 

The whole social media thing, is so messed up at the moment. Hope they fix this soon.

Hi @Aayanah_K

 

Did it tell you how many you gained ? massive seems a bit relative. Do you just use the computer interaction or also the one on the video table/phone that came with GF ? Do both not give you followers ?

 

@SproutLee

 

Not sure if it's the same issue as OP though. The interactions from the phone/video table seem a bit unconnected to your computer profile. Not sure how it's supposed to work. Also unsure about the advertise. Did you not have that before if you weren't in the career ? 

 

At the end of the day, we have content from three packs that influence this: The career from CL, the new stuff that came with GF and base game (charisma 5). It's very possible that they need to be kept separate so it still properly works if people don't have the packs.

I thought you're not getting any although you engage ?

SproutLee say they lost more than they had through advertisement ? Is that what you're seeing ?

*confused*

The thing is they all add up to the same total followers. So that's why I'm confused when creating a new account adds to your current following base. Also the advertising option seems to be a bug because it's from one of the branches of social media career. That's why regular sims who aren't in that career loose more followers than they've got.

That does sound different then. There was a bug that got fixed with the amount of followers. You shouldn't get that many just for streaming but you still shouldn't get none at all. Do you also get that if you use the phone ?


@SproutLee Could you create a separate thread for the advertising showing without the career and the massive loss because of it ? Thanks.

@Aayanah_K

 

could you test if you get the same issue with another Sim and also if you use the phone ?

 

Do you not gain any followers at all or just not as many ?
