Are you willing to be part of the Mover's list project 2.0!

I started sharing the movers of and on Virly a year ago.  With the release of the last list, I got a lot of fantastic feedback and easier, better and more interesting things to be captured. Since we are a community, I have been thinking about the feedback and have decided to try to implement as many of the changes as possible.

1. One of the asks was to understand better which social media had the greatest impact. I suspect this will be by the author, but we will find out! The first set of volunteers are needed. The volunteer will do the following. Send me a PM with the time they read the post, and they will share that post on Social Media. However, they will only share it via one social media (twitter, facebook, so on). They will comment and all the other nice you do when reading someone’s post, they will in the PM send me the time, and the Social media used. This is test group one. It is important if you are willing to be in test group one, that you agree to only use the same Social Share for each post you read.

2. The second group of volunteers will be focused on the impact of comments. First off, I will notify the writers if they are in group one or group two. I don’t want to reduce views for anyone, which is why there is group 3. But for group 2, you will agree to read posts, upvote and provide emojis but you will not comment on the pasts you read.

3. The last group is the actual authors in this study. In the past, I haven’t don’t this level of testing for who moves the needle. Based on doing more in-depth testing, I would like to get volunteers to have their posts in either group 1 or group 2.  

You can participate as an author and as a reader. Or you can participate as a reader. Or you can participate as an author. The intent of this is to gather more details about the impact of other writers on your publications, and the impact of the various (now 3) social media outlets on your writing.  This post is to determine simply their enough people interested in generating the new mover’s list.

I do not want to take Virils from any author. Therefore, we will do group 1 and group 2 for 24 hours after the initial post unless there are better ideas.

Please feel free to comment on the three groups and of course, offer some additional ideas. I pulled this from the last set of comments, but it is not all-inclusive. Consider this an early draft of the potential process.

  1. There is something you didn’t include in your project… – not all the people get their shared posts and links to be visited the same way (example: you share on Fb and get 20-50 visits, I share on Fb and get 3, while at the same time I have much more friends than you) so this experiment will not give the correct and valid answers…

  2. I’m sorry, how can you do this and ask people not to comment our articles……..?????????! I understand your experiment but are you aware you are AFFECTING other users who are not nor want to be the part of it this way too?????????!!!!!!!!!
