When it comes to making decisions, we often look to other people for clues. Subscriber or follower counts – Are a lot of people following this blogger? Bottom line: When it comes to social media, a large audience is golden. 3. When Cialdini talks about “liking,” he doesn’t mean the “Like” button on Facebook. 4. 5. 6.
