Hey guys! So, today I am going to talk about the three game-changers on Hopscotch: likes, followers, and views. Why we care about them so much, why Hopscotch probably doesn’t have a follower count and more.
First off, we care so much about these three things on our posts on both the forum AND on hopscotch. I know it’s great to see the hype on your post, and even I love it when you guys participate and get into it. A lot of people ARE like me! However, some people take it even further and make up sad stories to get you to like their post, or asking people to follow them for a certain prize. It is all really weird because Hopscotch isn’t exactly a form of social media, where you can gain popularity through likes. No one is “not popular” on the forum, for example. We are all just some hopscotchers that love to code and learn new things about the coding field. I love it when people favorite my posts and like my piece of code, but asking for likes is a whole new thing!
I don’t know for sure, but probably one good reason THH doesn’t get a follower count for your accounts is that the popularity contest starts. Who has more followers than who, who do people like more, etc! It will turn from coding to a contest to who has more followers! Think about it?!
Here is a little poll for you guys to complete. I am really interested to hear the results-
- I would rather have a follower count, despite all the proof held above
- Your right. Follower counts are not good for Hopscotch!
Thank you guys for reading! I hope I taught you something today!
