Translation:How many fans do you have on Weibo?

I guess the reason it is 'fans' is because the actual Chinese characters 粉丝 fen-si make a sound like 'fans" when they are spoken out loud.
It's a bit sad if people on Weibo see everything like this. Like somehow having many fans makes up for a bit of self-confidence in your own self and your own thoughts and opinions. Also does everybody want to be like a movie or pop star these days?
几个 is generally only used where the amount is expected to be small, around 10 or less, for example for a small child's age you would ask 几岁？ whereas for an adult you would ask 多大？, or asking how many people at a restaurant 几位？or asking the time 几点？For larger amounts, 多少 is used, for example money 多少钱？or in the Duolingo sentence here.
