Some are in the business to ‘help’ their fellow man (oops, person. Human. Wotever) with unsolicited advice (and good luck to them too)(I think …).
Others are in on a tit-for-tat basis—“You follow me and I’ll follow you” and/or “gimme a ‘Like’ and I’ll do the same for you” … which really is a bit pathetic; but often folks are pressing all the buttons in the hope of pushing a business, scoring a sale, or even clinching a client.

“Noted, Sir. How’d your dinner with the Pope go?”
“How did you … not bad, but the bottles weren’t from his top shelf.”
“Win a few, Sir …”
Funny … it’s not only wars that make for strange bedfellows. Religions (take your pick, there’s many thousands) do too …
