    At this point they mean nothing, shenanigans abound and we all know it. We should be strictly looking at sales.

    I care about how many albums groups sold. I care about how many singles groups sold. I'm a little iffy on streaming. That bothers me like MV views.

    I honestly don't care much for sales or YouTube records at all, as long as the music is good.

    But maybe that's just me. It sure seems like fans are focusing heavily on trivial things nowadays.

    Same here! For me, if the song is really good and has 300 so so views who cares. At the end of the day if I enjoy the music and I can jam in the car or working out then its fine with me <333

    They use it as a gauge to measure their groups' success. My issue is this, they are creating the video numbers themselves so it's not an accurate measure.

    That's why I'm like if they want to brag about something, give me hard dollar numbers.

    I don't particularly care either, but the bragging from all sides is nauseating.

    I don't care about them much, but more views usually means more exposion, and more exposion means more new fans :)

    This is the age of social media where the number of likes on a tweet or post determines you worth and bullshit like that. A lot of people have the mentality that you have to be pushing the social media numbers to be important.

    I personally don't waste time like that and prefer to focus on hyping the music and awesome music videos.

    YT views gives in more cash than kcharts, also Koreans people use YT more than Melon which is the biggest streaming service in SK.

    We live in the streaming era tho, streaming equals to sales no matter what platform you’re using. But you’re right pure sales are also important

    I am not Army. Please don't do that.
    I do not care. I was trying to figure out why there were so many posts about views. Because the relevance made no sense to me.

    it's the most accessible and the easiest to participate metric, and it doesn't cost a lot of money, as long as your time is free or cheap

    Ok, that makes sense to a certain extent. But I want to know sales and as @annoyed said streaming totals. That's the metric that I use and most businesses.
