Vanity Metrics

Vanity metrics are flashy numbers that make you feel good, but don't actually provide meaningful insights into your product's success. It's like obsessing over the number of followers you have on social media without considering the level of engagement or conversions.

In the world of product management, it's important to focus on metrics that truly reflect the impact of your product. Instead of vanity metrics like total sign-ups, think about metrics like active users, engagement rate, and customer satisfaction scores. These metrics give you a real understanding of how your product is performing and help guide your decision-making.
