Hey PH! & @kanyewest Darshil, Maas, and I quickly put together this chrome extension... It hides the number of favorites, likes, and followers from your feed so you can focus on "just the content." Using it is an interesting reminder of how influential social metrics are in our decision making and how we think of others. Let us know what you think! :)

I appreciate the purpose but I think everyone wants to see those metrics and they do help (visually) filter through the signal vs. noise.

@rrhoover Sometimes they're just a result of clout.

@rrhoover why generalize? Seems like there is pretty explicit consumer-request..

@rrhoover I think they're helpful when you're posting, but not when you're reading. Social proof adds zero to your capability to think and judge the value of something on its own merit rather than based on confirmation bias.

In today's environment, sometimes it's great to dismiss all the "clout" social stats give people... great product guys!
