What if your number of Twitter followers didn't matter?
I asked this question earlier on Twitter. What do you think? Would your behavior change if you knew that no one could see how many followers you had? If you remove # of followers from the equation, how would you then define 'influence' on Twitter?
What if we had no idea how many links a blog had? What if numbers were removed from the equation? Would interactions be based on something more personal and human? How would we determine who is worthy of being followed?
A lot to ponder. Seems too many decisions and too much of our behavior is predicated on numbers, and not on personal interactions.
What do you think?
