Mathematics shocker

I sometimes post at The Philosophers’ Magazine blog.  There’s a share button at the top of each page, which people can use to share posts by social media.  It’s a live indicator of what interests people at the moment.  The website gets gazillions of hits, but a popular post might get several hundred shares, most only get a handful.  It would be good if someone could explain why a consideration of the existence of mathematical objects has been shared TWO AND A HALF THOUSAND TIMES.

You’ll see that a recent post by Rupert Read on lesbians and the fantasies of heterosexual men has been shared less than 300 times.  Mathematical objects are of greater interest to the readers of tpm.  I can’t tell if that’s disturbing or marginally satsifying.
