One way to fight it? Twitter.

Twitter’s Dream Metric Is Not Followers – It’s How Many People Saw Your Tweet, Says Cofounder

Since Twitter first opened its doors to the public back in July 2006, pretty much everybody has been obsessed with a single number – namely, how many followers do you have?

Attractive as large follower counts can look, they are, and always have been, a false metric. Easily gamed (or bought), follower counts are, in many cases, indicative of nothing, and they certainly do not tell us anything about a user’s actual influence.

So there has to be a better way to do this… right?

Social Media And The History Of Influence [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that the first recorded advertisement, a Boston newsletter announcement seeking a buyer for an estate, dates back to 1704?

How things have changed. And how they’ve stayed the same. In today’s social media world, influence, and the perception thereof, is still a big deal. Big enough, in fact, for marketers and brands to be willing to pay for and reward influencers in their niche, and with good reason: peer recommendations drive sales. A recent survey showed that 70 percent of Facebook users were influenced into making a purchase based on a recommendation from a friend or family member on the social network.

However, teachers aren’t quite as positive about the merits of platforms such as Twitter and Facebook as their students – almost half believe that social media actually harms the learning process.

Good News, Everyone! Your Twitter Engagement Level Might Be As High As 0.46%

The number of followers you have on Twitter has always been a dubious and highly-debatable measure of success. Your level of engagement (mentions, retweets, clicks) is a much better indication of true influence.

Moreover, when you consider that at any one time the actual number of people paying attention to you on Twitter is frighteningly small, then one thing becomes crystal clear: you always need to be on your A game.

Want To Get More Followers On Twitter? Act As If

If I had to pick a single movie that had the biggest influence on my life, it would have to be 1987’s Wall Street.

I was 16 when that film was released, and it made a big impression on me. I must have watched it a dozen times, and even now can effortlessly recall huge chunks of dialogue (with all the appropriate nuance). And yes, while Oliver Stone’s closing message made his desired point, it couldn’t in any way compete with the force of nature that was Gordon Gecko. Like a gazillion other impressionable teenage kids, I was drawn into his web. By the time I was 21 I was working as a technical analyst for a small firm writing reports on global currency movements.

But I digress.
