1. An article of manufacture comprising a non-transitory computer usable medium having computer readable program code embodied therein, the computer readable program code when executed by one or more processors for configuring a computer to execute a method of simulating a social media account history, the method comprising:
generating social media identification information (“social media ID”), the social media ID simulating a user device associated with a human user;
defining a social media account associated with the social media ID; and
creating a simulated account history for the social media account by simulating one or more attributes and using the social media account of the human user, wherein:
the simulated account history for the social media account is created with respect to a pre-determined performer by simulating a time-stamped indication of affinity for the pre-determined performer, and
creating simulated account history comprises creating a pre-determined set of indications that simulate indications associated with an account history created by the human user(s).
