'Denial Of Friendship'

Hunter Walk (on a roll):

Hunter's rule: Any communication service which publicly displays a metric serving as a proxy for popularity will cause users to take steps to increase that number. […] If social influence metascores such as Klout gain prominence it will increase the problem as users seek to grow more popular to increase their score. Unfortunately publishing volume seems to be a compelling way to accomplish this as opposed to just quality.
