Does Social Media Promote This Kind of Objectification?

Maybe. It’s interesting that on Twitter, but also on Facebook, there’s been a strong emphasis placed on how many friends or followers one has. The media has picked up on that and there’s even been coverage of which celebrities have garnered the most followers. What does that mean? It certainly isn’t treating each person as valuable, or as an individual. Followers, for those with that mindset, are simply statistics, and the fact that you couldn’t possibly interact with very many is irrelevant. That’s treating people as things, or as tools, if it’s seen as a business goal.
