"Follow me", or "I am Salomon from London, and I have come to fetch you". With these words, the impresario Johann Peter Salomon is said to have persuaded the 58-year-old Joseph Haydn to leave Vienna for England twice. If in Haydn's case a person actually knocked on his door and persuaded him to travel, today we are familiar with the art of "influencing" on social media: Twitter, Tiktok, Facebook, Instagram... The art of seduction, influencing others is the means of gaining followers and achieving success.
