A million dollars

with my influence of having a million dollars I can get a million followers on any of those sites. People give much respect to the rich.

There is a probability that I can have a million followers and not make a million dollars so I will rather take the money

my money stays with me under my control but followers can die, loose their account or choose to unfollow

That is a great question.  Quite honestly, I think I would take the million dollars though.  I have some debts that I would like to be able to pay off immediately.  Then I would probably take the additional money and invest a good portion of it into Steem.  Let me explain some of my reasons.

I am not super old, but I am far enough along that the thought of starting a new venture with one of those social media platforms really doesn't appeal to me.  I have a lot of time invested in STEEM at this point and I like the pace.  I know I could potentially make a lot more than a million dollars by gaining ad revenue and things like that because of my huge follower base.  I really have no desire to make videos though and Twitter is such a huge time suck. You can literally get wrapped up in it for hours!

If I were about 20 years younger, I would probably go the other direction and select the million followers.  It would be a good way to build my brand and build a lasting revenue that would hopefully carry me into retirement.  

With the million dollars I could probably get most of my debt taken care of and still have about 800k left.  It would actually be more than that.  I don't have a ton of debt like some people.  I figure I could take about 500k of that and buy some Steem.  That would give me 1.4m Steem.  With that much Steem I would be able to get some awesome curation rewards and I would also have a pretty significant upvote.  Quite honestly, that might be a little too much Steem. I don't know if there is even that much available on the markets to buy.   Let's assume there is though.  

That still leaves me with another 300k to invest any way I want.  I could also use it to go on some trips and things like that.  I could be earning some income on whatever I invested that in, plus I would be earning and income on Steem.  I'd probably still keep working too.  I really do enjoy my job and 1 million really isn't enough to just up and retire on.

Amillion subscriber or followers in Instagram is a million times preferred to a million dollar gratification!!

Why?? Such an account would attract advertisement regularly which worth will shortly be much more than a million dollar!!

While the million dollars would be reducing in value due to economic vagaries, that of revenues from ads subscription would be increasing in value!!

Being famous is as well beneficial as it will endear you to a million individuals. In the advertising world , this would cost more than a million dollars to achieve.

The order of preference in such a case will be like:-

Instagram > Youtube > Twitter

Instagram is a kind of celebrity-hood and if you really have such number of msubscribers/followers, then you can be quite iconic for the advertisement industry and you can also get personalized offer in my opinion.

Then comes Youtube, it covers all types of people who are into vlogging. This is the next best thing for a person in terms of monetary benefit if that person has that much followers/subscribers.

Micro-blogging site like Twitter is also good and having that many followers will have more passive benefits but in terms direct monetary rewards Instagram & Youtube will always have the upper hand.

Easy. 

I would take a million followers and subscribers on the social media platforms.

With this sized following, I can earn an unlimited amount of revenue from advertisements across the board. I would also receive loads of free products for promoting them, and be invited to epic events in order to help promote. Influence goes a long way in the world in 2019. With a large following, the possibilites are endless. A million dollars could be blown too easy nowadays, anyway.

Cheers and nice question.

Wow this is a very good question to ask. Thanks for giving some option to choose.

Of course I'm going to go for a million dollars. The reason for my statement is because a million dollars worth more than having a million followers or suscribers on Instagram/YouTube.

Having a million dollars, I can do a lot more with it and I can also use it to earn more followers than having one million followers only. Mostly all the rich people in the continents are famous and global.

With a million dollars, I can invest and also socialize with it to gain more followers and subscribers. What would I gain, if I choose a million followers who can eventually unfollow or unsubscribe, or may lost their account.

Money can change all things. I would choose a million dollars.

**Peace** ✌️

A million dollars. Then I'd quit technology and be a nomad without the digital bit. No work. Sit on beaches. Go freediving. Meditate. Do whatever the fuck I want. Withought the hustle.
