Those big looking count numbers is what people run after and so steps like this will help show the real picture.
Similar things have been proposed on twitter as well like instead of follower count they also plan to have active follower count but then that is also not something real in numbers when it comes to social power. Ideally it should be the active users who see the tweet and act upon.
Social media marketing is more about making those counter better but those who run after numbers don't understand few dedicated users are far better than thousands of users for getting better counters.
On top of that it will make those $5 for 1000 FB likes fiverr user life miserable.
