Do You Care About Follower Counts?
TechCrunch just published an article titled “Should Twitter Remove Its Follower Count” which lead to me to the following question: do you care about your (or someone elses) follower count? I mean, honestly, does it bother you if someone has more followers than you do? I know this all may seem elementary to a certain degree, but, I can almost guarantee people are bothered by this whole follower situation. Here are my personal feelings on the subject and I’m curious to know yours so leave a comment.
First and foremost, I’m going to come out and say, I believe my followers are important and I am always trying to gain more of them. Second, it does bother me when my “competitors” (if you will) have a larger following than I do. However, I believe this makes me more competitive and at the end of day benefits me, not them. I am always looking to improve my blog, forums, community at large to build the greatest (best) community on the web – not just in the tech field either – I’m talking the best community ever. Whether I can accomplish that is another story, but it won’t stop me from trying my best.
That being said, I occasionally have to stop myself and say, “Jeff, you’re only 19 – stop and look around at what you have built and done.” Not that I’m the only 19 year old who has built something like this, but, I believe it’s special to anyone who can accomplish something at this age. Anyway, back to the followers thing.
I’m done (for now). Feel free to follow me (@besttechie) and leave me a comment!
