Explaining the Virily Movers project

I wanted to explain the concept of a Virily Mover better. It is a traditional social media view of someone’s impact. I break that down into three distinct concepts. The first concept is their posts are often found in the most commented section of virily, or can routinely be found in the hot section. The hot section is where your post goes when you get the up arrows next to the number of views. That means your post is “hot” it stays in the normal Virily view area until it reaches a specific milestone. I’ve noticed the milestone is anywhere from 110 to 130 views in a 24 or so hour period. It is a range honestly because I’ve ever actually been logged onto the platform when my post moved into the hot section.

Movers, however, are not just about their posts. We all can probably tell whose posts move quickly. Movers are also about the following:

•When they comment other users also comment

•When they view, they bring along other virily users

But it is more than that. Another component of the mover concept has to do with things we can’t capture (external views) nor things that matter to authors. Although there is the concept of someone that is a frequent social responder (they click on your twitter or other links) and become a Virily member I have and we have no way to gather that information.

The three parts of movers:

1. Their posts are often in the most commented section

2 .Their posts are often hot or have the rising logo on the post

3. When they comment other authors comment

4. When they read other authors, read as well

Now in fairness, we can only track  3 of the 4 (the 4th one I cannot track easily. But the concept is to watch 10-20 posts per day (different authors each time) to see how things are moving in the system. This is by no means a scientific exacting study of the concepts of what is working and what isn’t working. This evaluates the movement of various authors posts over some time.

I would love to figure out a way to determine if titles have a big or a medium impact. I know they have an impact, but we have no way to study that scientifically nor is there a subjective good vs bad title baseline.

I hope this explanation helps!
