Followers are you here?

thomasbnt profile image Thomas Bnt ใƒป1 min read

I would like to know how many percentages I get of views, likes etc.. on my followers. I've got a lot, but I find that there is a lot of inter-reactions missing.

Update

Thanks for your reply, I opened a new Issue about that :

Improving statistics and reducing ghosts #6608

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

I've got a lot of followers, but when I post a new article, I get little interaction and few views. This is really too bad and I'm not the only one who might be frustrated...

Describe the solution you'd like

I would like two things :

  • A upgrade of Dashboard

    • Add a graph for statistics
    • Triage by weeks/months
    • Graph with colors for distinct news followers, unsubscribings and inactives accounts.
  • Implement a system for clear inactives followers :

    • It would be displayed in the graph with a distinct color to see that they were inactive lost accounts.

Describe alternatives you've considered

No alternatives for me, if you have a idea in concert with mine, share it ! ๐Ÿ‘‹

Additional context

I did a post to get some stats. I didn't get much feedback, but I'm happy to read it.

Thanks to @catalinmpit for this idea.

Iโ€™m here!

Sadly a large % of our users stay logged out even when theyโ€™ve once signed up. Weโ€™re improving the following mechanics though to improve that ๐Ÿ˜„

Iโ€™d be interested to see the results here.

 

For instance, Quora is sending by email something like reader's digest of "the most popular" recent posts. I don't know if you have something similar, and frankly, I am not even sure I would appreciate it. But people are different and it may help you to get users back to the site.

Saying that, it is absolutely normal for great discrepancies between views and interactions. For instance, my latest post on Quora got 8.5k of views, about 220 upvotes and about 10-20 comments. And half of the comments are my responses.

It is absolutely normal throughout all the internet.

By the way, Ben, dev.to is a very nice platform. Congrats.

 

It distorts the statistics suddenly .. why not ensure that users who have not been logged in for X times are no longer considered followers?

So improve the dashboard panel by integrating simple curves to have a history? And differentiate the loss of inactive members by a purple color for example and an unsubscribe by red?

sorry if nosence on certain sentence, I used G. Translate, too long for me and complicated

This would be wonderful Thomas,
I hope dev team considers this idea.

 

Thanks, I will open a Issue ! ๐Ÿ‘

Edit : Link to issue

 

Cool!
Let's see what happens..

 

As Dev gets more and more users, managing with them is gonna get tougher. I noticed this with Quora, as the user base increased, the content quality decreased. Just today I saw some account spam the feed with multiple posts here.

I wonder how the core team will deal with it

 

I hope that doesn't happen on Dev.to as far as spam is concerned.

 

Hello there. Comment รงa va?

I'm still here. I try to visit a couple of times per week. It's my go-to now, maybe even more than Stack Overflow.
