Post Activity Report 15th Aug - 21st Aug

in stats •  3 months ago

This weekly report provides a snapshot of posting activity on the Steem Blockchain for the past 7 days.

  • How many accounts are active?
  • Who is posting?

The story this week is a continued downward trajectory in activity overall but with a slight uptick (week on week) in mean number of posts per user.

Last weeks report is available for comparison Post Activity Report 8th Aug - 14th Aug



Focusing on the numbers/frequency of posts (i.e. ignoring payouts) we can get a feel for who is posting as well as the level of account activity.

We separately analyse the frequency of posting activity by:

  • Reputation of Author
  • Steem Power
  • Date of Joining
  • Automated vs Manual Posts
    This Automated/Manual categorisation is based on frequency of posting activity over the last 7 days

Posts per Day (ex comments)

In the past 7 days there was a total of 154k posts from 33k unique accounts. That gives an average of 5 posts in the week for authors that were posting. The next graphs shows the breakdown of these figures on a daily basis.

  • The mean number of Posts per day was 21.9k
  • The mean number of Accounts posting per day was 11.9k

Daily counts give a high level overview but we can examine subdivisions or groups of authors to get further insights into who is posting.

The colour in the following graphs represent different cohorts of Steemit Accounts.

Reputation

It can take a while to build your reputation and the system is designed so that it is easy to lose it. You don't want to get downvotes from people with higher Rep!

The next few graphs examine how many posts per day are made by people of different Reputations.

The first accounts were created in April 2016. We are now over the 1.1m account mark. Absolute number is important but retention is also important.

  • How many people who joined over the course of the last year are still posting?
  • Who is creating the bulk of the daily content?

The next few graphs examine how many posts per day are made by people that have been on Steemit for different lengths of time.

Automated Accounts

If there is one, what is the number of comments a day that we could use to identify automated accounts?
I would propose anything higher than 4 posts per day (on average) uses some sort of automation. This number may not be correct but it's a starting point for our analysis.

Automated accounts may post daily reports or in some cases may just be people spamming the system with low quality content or content copied from other sources. Not all automated posts are bad and some provide a useful function such as daily statistics, market analysis etc. Splitting out these automated accounts will be more relevant for comment activity however it's also worth tracking for posts.

The next few graphs examine the daily posts that are in some way automated.

You see that in these plots? The duration is too short (and the delta too small) to be meaningful.

Not that I disagree that less people use Steem now than when the price was high several months ago, but that's true for most cryptocurrencies.

I really only care about adoption among users that create high quality content and that provide intelligent & meaningful curation. This is harder to gauge, but @eroche stratifications are more useful in this regard than previous analyses I've seen.

I am scared by the fact:
The average number of accounts posted per day was 11.9 thousand

  • I have concerns about the future
