What are Random Counts?
Random counts are fake counts that can be generated in Global Activation. This option allows for you to set a range of counts that you would like shown on your posts for both emoji counts and social share counts.
How do Random Reaction Counts work?
You can easily set up your Random counts in step 2 of Global Activation. Activating random counts in this step applies to future posts only. To activate these counts on past posts, you can do so by managing random counts in the Tools Tab. More on this is explained below.
Enable / Disable
☑️ Check this option to enable user counts and enter your range of numbers. Uncheck this option to disable random counts. In this case all user counts will start at ‘0’
Setting up a range of counts:
Type in the range that you would like shown for each emoji and the counts will be generated randomly on your posts. Make sure you use the hyphen to separate the numbers. For example, 2500-10000 will generate random fake counts and spread them out throughout your posts.
How do Random Social Share Counts work?
You can manage Random Social Share counts in Step 3 of Global Activation. Set a range of overall fake share counts. This will be applied to all future posts.
