Thanks to @emacsomancer for forwarding to me this article about "demetrification" of social media wired.com/story/internet-healt (not showing like counts, follower counts, etc) and how dramatically user behavior is changed when we do expose these things.

@cwebber @emacsomancer i think if there is a like button, there should be a dislike button, like on reddit!

@Ste1lar I'm not sure a dislike button really balances things out. It would just seem to invite gamified engagement in the opposite direction.

@emacsomancer @Ste1lar Yeah I think it might make social behavior even worse, because it will increase defensiveness.
