    I agree with you Melissa, I don’t support this move, and optimistically wait to see if Twitter will replace shares with another metric that might be more useful? Seeing Twitter shares is helpful from a reader perspective to know whether something is worth reading, or sharing!

    1. 1.1


      Exactly, Kristy. We could see which articles were popular and on which platforms they were being shared the most – very helpful insights.

      Unfortunately, we could not see the point in only having Facebook or Google+ share counts, as a large number of Croakey shares are done via Twitter. If there’s nothing to compare then it is a bit pointless. All share counts have been removed but we, like the many sites out there that have used this facility, really hope that Twitter reinstates a comparative metric that is as useful and one that we can afford.
