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..
Share
@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!

Pros: I mean. This is the weirdest Twitter feed now. And it's MY feed. I don't know what other people think. Cons: I now have to think a lot more. This has created a new level of cognitive load for me as I scroll through Twitter not knowing what things are popular, and it's less fun now. Pros - part 2: I now have to think a lot more.

I love the idea - though I notice it doesn't seem to work with Facebook or LinkedIn yet, is it currently just for Twitter?

@lvturner Just for Twitter right now! Would you be interested in other platforms too :) ?

@lvturner Awesome! Will be sure to explore that and get back to you :)

@lvturner I have developed a Facebook Demetricator since 2012, which hides all the metrics on Facebook. (This was my original Demetricator, preceding the one I wrote for Twitter and later Instagram). I haven't done one for LinkedIn Twitter: https://bengrosser.com/projects/... Facebook: https://bengrosser.com/projects/...
