@edgren why the number of interests is useful to user? Maybe you don't need to show this number at all? Maybe interests is the information you really want to present to user? Maybe it's better to call this section "I like" rather than "interests" to make it look like a conversation?
Why sort alphabetically? Maybe it's better to use an arbitrary order, an order you would tell about your interests to a friend?
