In this day and age, people seem more interested in numbers than anything else.
An excellent article that questions this value.
Extract: “The point is, numbers become cumbersome when they are the nucleus of a social media campaign. One billion Facebook users is not indicative of the success of Facebook, it only means that the world wants to get social. We do not want to constantly create status updates and upload family albums, we want to connect, to feel a part of something larger than ourselves. Facebook is the platform by which the world speaks, but it’s reliant on the human desire for interaction; to be accepted by groups and organizations and communities; to engage in communal experiences that continue to reshape the social heartbeat of an electronically pulsating society.”
