More people sharing means more people eventually see.

Because I feel these days it's a far more powerful way to communicate with people

Social shares let me know that the content is actually reaching people and they are engaging with it, not just visiting the page.

Social media shares let me know my work resonated enough with readers/viewers that they felt compelled to share my content with others.

Social shares let me expand my content offerings and I get to measure the metrics on Facebook precisely. Social media is a much more viable option than just page views because of the versatility and targeted ads.

If people are moved enough by your content to share it, I measure its popularity by that action.

Page views are too arbitrary and include people who may disagree or dislike what they just read. However, only people who actively agree and appreciate the content will decide to share it with others.

Page views are too easily inflated by users who see the content only for a moment but do not read or interact with it.

Other people sharing my opinion means it resonated more with them than them simply liking it

Though page views are a great measurement for the effectiveness of a headline, shares prove the audience enjoyed the content enough to send out to their network, and that the content has the potential to go viral.

While sharing is important, some people are simply not willing to share so an important metric should eyes on the content.

I believe that people visiting the page tells more about its popularity than social shares because a lot of people may read the material without sharing it.

Page views seems like a more objective way to measure because you are including all the people who shun social media..

While social shares are important, measuring page views helps track conversion through the funnel.
