@sethdrebitko I'm with you on that one. I don't know if seeing responses adds anything in particular to a post or conversation? But now I feel like I'm looking down my Scrooge glasses at the idea... sorry. I'm really not a fan of just scrolling through comments, feeling impulsively like I must "like" them all... I much prefer coming here and taking the time to comment on something I agree with or disagree with, or if I really must, reply with an emoji :D
@kicks that’s definitely true about how popularity and interest sort of snowball.. and oh, I agree so much about blogrolls! Love them. I guess when you (not you personally!) get into dangerous territory is when follower and like numbers are interpreted as indicative of quality or value. Most of us here are grownups—we’ve seen the development of the web and social media emerge— and we can understand the difference, but it’s easy to fall into that way of thinking all the same I think. I’d argue that while those numbers could be useful to the individual I don’t think they need to be broadcast to the wider group...
