Hi Nabeel… thanks for the friendly response, too!
This part makes me laugh — it’s true that reading isn’t a requirement for sharing. Sometimes sharing content one didn’t read first backfires, though.
(ie: the content isn’t what the non-reader thought it would be based on title)
When you think about it, social currency is kind of a bizarre concept. Basically it amounts to doing things because we think it will make us “look” good to our peers. Which gives me an idea for an article… so thanks, too! :)
