It’s amazing how important recognition can be. Just acknowledging someone’s status, like my Pros, or a rank in the military, or the leaderboard on a game can be a very powerful motivator.
Recently, recognition in the form of a badge, the Verified badge on Twitter, became almost scandalous. Twitter put a moratorium on issuing Verified badges, yet somehow, the founder’s mom and dad got a Verified badge during that period, and the Twittersphere freaked out.
Why does recognition like this, which has no monetary value but very high social proof, mean so much to people? What type of recognition means most to you?
