I'm guessing you are talking about the ones on personal profiles. If you hover over them with the mouse for long enough — they will display a hint. The one with the thinker is the number of followers and the spiral next to the thinker is the number of Scriggles you have. I wouldn't worry about these too much though. Following/followers on Scriggler is very different to other platforms — it doesn't actually mean anything. You would follow someone only if you want to see when they publish something new straightaway and want to be able to invite them to clubs. You can also restrict publications on your dashboard to only the ones by the people you are following. They don't get notified that you started following them and so no reciprocity is expected. It doesn't affect your visibility on the platform beyond that in any way.
Scriggles are our internal points collected for all interactions. You get them for views (+1 from members and +1/4 from non-members), for likes (+10), for re-shares (+10) and for receiving comments from other members (+1), we also take away points for dislikes (-3). Similar thing on comments — you get Scriggles for likes and replies on your comment (same scores). The number itself doesn't mean all that much, but the higher it is the more chance you have to appear at the top of everyone's dashboard (you have a chance even with zero Scriggles, but the more you have — the higher the probability). Scriggles are also used to determine the positioning in the monthly writing contest and are the only factor used in the charts.
