I’m going to guess you don’t have 2,313,454 followers on Twitter like Google. Sure it looks pretty neat to have 100,000 folowers on Twitter but this isn’t a game you are trying to win. The high scorer doesn’t get a trophy to put on the mantel. You should be focusing on quality instead of quantity. You want a strong network that interact with you and the other members of your network. If you are only on social networks to polish your ego then you really don’t understand the point. Strong networks exist for the mutual benefit of all the network members. Not only to help you but to help your followers and friends by sharing and learning from one another. Growing your community is important, but you really should be looking at who’s engaging with you and at what levels. If you make your contacts feel like a number, they will surely respond by acting like one. In the long run it’s more important to have a devoted, enthusiastic community of friends and followers then an inflated ego based on an arbitrary number.
