How Can I hide The Viewer Count On My Google Plus Profile

Someone wanted to hide a number of fan on her g+ profile and this is what she asked me: “I use social media to connect with friends and family but i’m not a fan of the popularity contest. How can i disable viewer count on my google plus profile. ”

Social media is all about numbers. The same philosophy applies in real estate. Everything is about a number of people you can connect with. The more fan you have the better the chance of making more money. Ask Kim Kardashian’s 20 million tweeter followers or Caitlyn Jenner’s 4 hour 1 million hits. That’s an ATM for them(ka-ching) but if you are not dreaming of doing business in the modern world (rather keep private), i can help you with your concern. Oh-Wait! it’s not that easy. You can’t get rid of everything but i’ll show you what you can do and here is how:

To start out, let me show you Sir Richard Branson’s Google Plus profile

Look more closely on the left side, you’ll see the follower count and views count

Bad news “You can’t get rid of the followers count”, but that crazy big ol 406,486,625 views stat? That we can hide.

Pull up the main menu on the left side of any Google+ page:

Choose “Settings”, then scroll down on the resultant page to find this entry:

Uncheck the third entry: Show how many times your profile and content have been viewed. Simply make sure that particular box isn’t checked and you’ll be good to go. Again, you can’t hide your follower count, but your views at least vanishes.

Note: The real way to avoid all the popularity is to simply not be on social media, but that might be a bit risky in today’s fame hungry society. Good luck hiding!
