I have observed that Stack Overflow gives badges for sharing questions over social media websites.
I have few doubts about it.
- How is the number to which the question is shared counted? Say I have 1000 followers on Facebook, and if I share it on Facebook wall, does it count to 1000 shares, or only if someone clicks on link shared by me and views, only that count is considered?
- If I shared a question, got a badge and later remove that shared post, will the badge would be removed or nullified?
- Will Stack Overflow have more sharing options other than Facebook, twitter and g+?
- If I share a question in my blog, will that be counted too?
