The bottom of the cup and the MOVERs (formerly Virily Influencers)

Let’s start today with what’s at the bottom of the aAstroreality coffee cup. So, that is the picture that goes with today’s post.

Movers: movers come in two forms on Virily. The first kind brings you, other users, who tend, because of the mover commenting; they also tend to comment.

The second kind is a little harder to measure completely, but they bring other external users when they share via social media.

All of the data is collected over ten days. In this case, because of the outage yesterday, it reports 11 days, but only ten were measured.

I picked 20 authors and watched their posts.

  1. Here is the methodology – I log into the user’s posts over the day ten times. During each login, I note the number of comments, who has commented and the number of views.
  2. I do not share that users post that day on social media.
  3. Based on this model, without access to a little more site data, everything in this study is more than 5% potential error rate. I would put the error rate at +/- 10%

In all cases, the movers help your posts. There are several authors who impact posts as well. I am going to limit this list to the top 5 for now. CarolDM and Ghostwriter would end up on both lists just to be fair. They are the top movers on the site. I also did seven the last time, but this time stayed from the lower users because I would have Ghostwriter and CarolDM twice (not that you two don’t deserve that. It’s just that you end up with a repeat list of four before you get a new name). To get to 7 movers I would need a list of 9 total users.

  1. Know them all very well and their names keep showing up as they continue to post. I try to do my part as much as I can but my plate is always pretty full with all the work I do online to keep bringing in some kind of income so I cannot be here every day but I do attempt to show up at least twice a week now.

    • There are many people that move posts as well. I love your state and your rock and roll series. Who knows, if I could go through and get more data you might be a mover already. I am locked to what I can collect currently.
