"Piper" is a good one!

I don't think there's an official verb for this. Marketers often refer to "grow your following" or "attract..."

You might let the context help determine what verb to use here. Depending on how you're gaining followers, they might be:

lured
seduced
suckered
snagged
captured
etc.

:-)

"Piper," as in, "She pipered 30 followers last week."

And yes, I just made that up.

Hello, writers who know social media terms,

Just wondering if thereâs a one-word verb that means âgain a follower on Facebookâ?

I donât need to worry about whether the people that are gained are fans or followers, and Iâm not talking about the person who chooses to follow someone (which could be sort described by the verb âlikeâ). Iâm hoping that thereâs just a less wordy way to say âgains followers on Facebookâ...
