Meta Question

Would you like it if Fluther would tell you the quantity of people who are following each question?

Asked by jca (36043points) March 30th, 2012

Sometimes I click on “follow” without answering a question. Sometimes I’m curious as to how many people, in addition to the ones who answered, are following a question at any one time.

Would you like it if Fluther would tell you the quantity of people who are following each question?

Nah. The quantity of people following still, to my mind, isn’t an indicator of anything important. The number of people “following” something on Twitter comes to mind to illustrate that particular point.

I do not think that this information would be useful for me to know. It would satisfy my curiousity, possibly, but numbers don’t mean much in the long run.

I had forgotten that button existed.

Eh, not really, could result in some sort of popularity contest which is unneeded

It’d be cool to know, maybe not nescessary. It just shows how many people care about the question rather than answering it.

I wouldn’t mind. I mean, it’s not necessary, but it would be kind of interesting, you know?

It would be interesting to know when looking up old questions. Whether it’s worthwhile adding a comment, or whether no-one will see it.

Nope, but I would like to know what everybody is wearing who are following each question?
