The argument by individuals that they will benefit by following the

They're not following crowds, they're joining a service to distribute their work. They're no more likely to be found than if they used a service that respects their users wishes for increased privacy and control over their own computers. People don't pay attention to them because they're on a service, people pay attention because they have something others want to read, hear, or see; something they could offer on any or multiple services. They argue in terms of losing a popularity they don't have but simultaneously seek to gain by joining a service which doesn't actually give them the popularity they desire (which most of the time doesn't happen). The loop continues for as long as they remain on the service despite clear evidence of their continued unpopularity.
