Out of my 16,000 Followers Only 1647 Are Not GhostssteemCreated with Sketch.

Thanks @personz, now I’m going to run off a cliff.

Anyone who doesn’t understand that Steem has a massive retention problem lives inside a delusion. I take some responsibility for my inactive spell as I left for a while.

I’m actively supporting projects that have high retention of users, and so far Partiko has shown great stats for retention.

Band-aid attempts are not useful....we need massive changes on a system-wide scale.

Taking ideas for synergy and new radical ideas in the UA Discord channel.

Who would have thought?

I guess I shouldn't even attempt to check on my active followers in that case then..

So, ten percent.

Most likely, what that tells us is that approximately 10% of the people here are interested in a social media experience, and 90% are here "just for the money." And when it turns out to not be "easy money," they lose interest.

That's a huge generalization, of course.

The problem starts with how this venue has been presented to the world. It's all "COME TO STEEMIT AND MAKE MONEY!!!" If you stand on the street corner and yell that, what sort of people will that attract? Most likely, not people who care about content creation, but people who care about MONEY.

I believe we are paying the price of never having put Steemit forth as a social content site (with rewards) and instead only talking about "make money." In marketing, you get EXACTLY what you "ask" for, directly or indirectly.

Initiatives like @abh12345's Curation and Engagement Leagues have retention rates FAR above community average because... well, they attract active participants and contributors, not just people seeking to fill their pockets. What we need are more things like that...

Bright Blessings!

Great points, I agree with you

Of my 1836 followers, 1618 are 'ghost' and 954 are 'dead' followers. However, the definition of ghost is users who have not interacted with me in my last 100 posts. Dead is defined as not active for a month.

Not sure if I expect followers to engage. Many people are shy, just stealthy reading. I think the 'dead' followers measure does reflect the abandon rate for Steemit.

·

The big question is if a vote counts as interaction? Anyone knows?

I think it counts

Then that is really bad. I don't expect followers to post a comment, but they should leave an upvote at least once in a while

Hmmm,, I go through a lot of stuff if I don’t reply it is because of two things: I don’t really understand what the post is about or there is nothing really to say.. if I like the pictures, I’ll upvote

I think of you as someone who has great content and the fact that you’re still here is significant...

1648 now.

Scary but this is happening to all of us unfortunately...

How do you identify a ghost follower?

I love spectacles. Beautful interface, user friendly etc.

What I don't like is seeing how many dead and ghost followers one has, lol

·

amazing, now if the retention you get is experienced system wide, we would be rocking. I believe the solution exists in getting core code changed along with a culture change... I think both must happen.

We would totally be rocking.

We've offered out the system to a few places, but they prefer the Curation over the Engagement for now.

Maybe it will change a UA grows.

Totally agree, it's a hell of a lot of work doing this, and only covering a small % of accounts.

wow only 10% are active, I wonder if that % is the same for the entire Steem ecosystem.

I think it is

Lol steemspecicles can really give you that painful reality check I only have a 100 out of over 1000 so I’d say not too bad 10% are alive and kicking!

10% is miserable retention rate

I am part of the real followers 😁

I’ve been noticing something: most of my newer followers are also using the Partiko app. My older followers are not.

The retention problem exists because Steem cannot possibly be an earning platform for everyone - at least not for long - without investors losing patience. Speculation on Bitcoin has lifted all altcoin boats, including Steem in recent years. But if Steem is to be a successful business, that is, one that brings in more fiat than it leaks, it will have to offer a range of produce things for consumers to consume. If Steem is to succeed in the future, the vast majority of future Steemians will have to be consumers of paid content or targets of advertising, not content producers. The premise that Steem is a platform for content producers only truly is a scam.

How many different people you have upvoted ?
All the others have left.

Over a 1,000 regulars; Sounds like Party Time to me !

I just checked yesterday ... and as a newbie out of my 270 followers only 20-30 are real :D

Posted using Partiko Android

Well Stella I checked my stats and tbh they are also depressing....
I have to take a valium...:P

·

Ok so now we look at Steem apps that a higher retention rate than 10% and we massively focus every on those. That’s a strategy.

The most famous Dapps certainly have higher retention
The way I see it dapps are the future....that's it.

That is little more than 10% I suppose :0

While can I get the link to get to see my DEAD FOLLOWERS ;)

Sorry I was very alarmed since last year when I checked it was more than 50% active. 40% more has died since I last checked and that’s shocking

I'm just joking 😂 it's interesting to know this kind of stuff, the power of interpreting data.

I am your follower and I am not a ghost and I need some delegation to start posting maybe, nothing is as frustrating as posting and getting no votes worth it😶 ok now I just requested maybe you check me out after few weeks to see how am going with the delegation👋👋

Change is always for the better

I'm not a ghost. I have followed you for quite a while now, and I always try to make a useful engagement on your posts.

However, I think most of us that checked out that Steem spectacles are now realizing that.

As Doge might say....

Does me a heccin concern.

I m one of the 1647followers 😊😆

Well, in a dead land like this. We still have some walking ghost though like myself.

Hahahahaha please come back to life

I'm alive, lol.

I think one thing that would help greatly with retention would be an app that more easily lets people find the right people or groups. I know the hardest thing I've had to deal with is finding the right people who have content I'm interested in and to find people interested in my content. I wouldn't say I have it figured out yet either. I have had a hard time finding content that I have interest in on some days, I am assuming I just have not discovered the right way to search yet, but I'm sure plenty of other new people leave before figuring any of that out.

Is there already another Steem based app to facilitate finding groups for certain interests that I just haven't discovered yet?

·

We all have a terrible time finding people on here. Partiko has said they are working on something soon for that

Posted using Partiko iOS

Every little bit helps. I had switched from steemit to steempeak because it had a feature that let's you save your favorite topics which sounded like it would help with searching. Unfortunately, I discovered that it's not finding most content, even posts I had made myself using the keyword were not showing while I can still find them in the traditional search.

The more developers improve the apps the better retention Steem will have. If Partiko is also a mobile app I'll check that out too, I hadn't figured out how to get access to the platform on my phone yet.

Partiko already has a functioning search tool that works well

I'm a ghost. See... you can't see me...

·

I’m happy to be one of the non ghost!

Posted using Partiko iOS

I really wish there was a way to block all these ghost accounts from following me, I really want to know how many real people follow me

Posted using Partiko iOS

I've noticed my feed getting a little anemic lately with disappeared people. Need to find some new folks to follow.

Sometimes I feel like a ghost but I'll be haunting you forever...

Sounds creepy. I think most of the good people left when The bidbots took over (myself included)... nothing smacks of a shit site than seeing bidbots control an entire platform

Posted using Partiko iOS

It's been an interesting ride here I guess we could say. A time trap for most of us.

I was talking to one witness and he was basically acting like all those people dropping off are just quitters and not engaging. It was pretty ridiculous. He was actually trying to act like the Witness voting was fair and we don't really have problems here but people just want to complain.

·

Ridiculous. Myopia and Tragedy of the Commons. We can solve these issues but only if we actually see them.

You are a user since 2016 that´s part of the reason why that many amount of followers are no longer in the community. The other reason as you mentioned is user retention which is getting more and more attention, which reflects in new projects with a lot of potential to solve many problems.

OMG - if your stats look like that, I am afraid to even take a look at mine.
