Have you noticed the social bookmarking buttons on this site?
Impressive, isn’t it..
You see, the problem with social bookmarking is that no-one wants to be the first to “like” something. It’s a “herd mentality” thing.
It’s a fact, that someone is more likely to “like” something if someone else already has.
So that means it’s a vicious circle – no-one will click unless someone has already clicked. Damn.
So how do we get around that? You’ve already seen the answer. This plugin displays either “REAL” or “Fake” likes, so you can set it to display “fake” like totals until the number of REAL likes hits a threshold.
(On this site, it generates a random number of likes until the REAL number hits 30, the it displays the REAL number)
The animated “share” counter also gets you past their “like button blindness” – this is like “banner ad blindness”, where visitors don’t actually notice the banners/buttons anymore.
If you hover over the share button, it shows the likes from the individual sites – again, impressive!
