Steem.Supply New Feature: Upsteemers versus Followers Chart in the Social Insights Area

in steemit •  7 months ago

I just rolled out a new feature for the "Social Insights" tab of which lets you visualize the number of upsteemers (people who upsteemed your posts during the last 7 days) versus the total number of your followers.

Here's how this looks for my account:

I think this is a very interesting metric. You may have a fairly large number of followers, but not all of them are upsteeming your stories. Or you may have a large number of followers, but many of them are not on Steemit anymore. Either way, I find this metric useful.

Note 1: if the account you're looking up has a fairly large number of followers, the first request will take longer than usual, because how the data from the blockchain is retrieved in this specific case. The subsequent requests are cached for 24 hours, though, so they should be way faster.

Note 2: there is a known bug in Google Charts which offsets the labels for piecharts, so if you see the labels on the slices a bit off, try to hover with your mouse over that slice to see the tooltip, like in the second screenshot above (that's the best workaround I can come up with).

As always, I'm open to suggestions, criticism and feedback.

Another great feature for ... Cool!

@dragosroua - thanks for this tool! I have an unrelated question which I'm hoping you can answer. Where/how can I see all of the people who upvoted my posts AND the value of each of their upvotes? On when you look up a post and press on the "Votes" tab it only shows a few votes even though the post got a whole bunch, not sure why that is.


Hi @yabapmatt,
You can find that at It gives all the users voted and the value of their vote. BUT! it needs lots of going around and back and fourth and it can be a hassle. The least hassle would be if you catch a new vote and check it immediately.

However, I agree with @dragosroua that this will be a great addition to steem. supply. I also asked for another addition pertaining to the same subject in my comment somewhere below :)



Oh awesome, I just found it on steemd - you're right it's hidden but it's there! Thank you!


Glad it helped :D


I don't know yet, but this sounds like a cool addition to

Very interesting metric!

I am thinking about the value of having another quite similar one to this one next to it: number of upvoting followers/the total number of your followers.

Both give different insights. The first one would say more about exposure combined with appreciation from people that probably don't know you (assumption + only when upvotes by followers are not taken into account) and the second one would say more about how engaged and consistently loyal your follower base is.

What do you think @dragosroua?


I think this chart does exactly what you described.


Ahh so only the upsteemers that are followers are counted in the dark green part of the pie? So upvoters that are not followers are not included?


I'm not matching upsteemers with followers now, I just assume that upsteemers are followers. Many interesting statistics can arise once I'll do this integration, you are right about that, but I'd first wait for feedback from the community.


Fair enough! Thanks for working on these kind of things :-)

it will be really helpful for all of us, people like you making steemit more beautiful each and everyday, a big thanks to all of you...

Nice work as always, I appreciate all the effort and use steem supply all the time. Keep up the good work it earned you my witness vote :)


Thank you :)

that is a great metric... i don't know why but i still can't get the two "insights" tabs to work. i've had trouble with that for a week or two now.


which browser / os? Also can you make a screenshot?


i tried it with chrome and explorer...sorry i don't know how to make a screenshot, i'm on a desktop... fyi


Do you get any error message at all, or the tabs just don't open?


just nothing happens or changes


This morning i find that the tabs are working.

Actually something happened. Its not loading :/



try again now, it's working


It loaded in another browser, it might had to do with cache

I like it.

It's interesting that I keep getting followers but few of them interact with what I post. Any ideas why? Nice job with the social tab.


Probably they are from the "follow for follow" tribe, so to speak. Patience and try interacting with higher profile authors.


I'm not in a hurry :) the thing is I follow very few people, but maybe some people just hit that follow button randomly. Was is strange is they don't do that on other platforms.

That is a really nice feature. I will go right away and take a look. Thanks for this service. @OriginalWorks

Hi @dragosroua,
This is yet another amazing feature of I like it a lot. Thanks for sharing.
By the way, is it possible to distinguish the voters classes in this chart? for example number (%) of whales, orcas, dolphins, minnows and plankton that upvote.
I think this will add a lot of value to our steemit knowledge and will probably enhance fair practices.

By the way, I am adding this post to my 6th curation attempt today (Will reply with the link when I finish writing it). I would be very happy if you would take a look at it and let me know what you think.

Thanks again :D

Reestem, thanks for sharing it is very instructive

Thanks for the useful information @dragosroua.

This is awesome! Can somebody also tell me what tool should I be using to see who has resteemed one of my posts? Thanks in advance!

Another insightful update. This is my favorite add-on to the platform and the 1 I use the most. Thank you for all your hard work!

Thanks for sharing! A link to your post was included in the wiki page about Follower. Thanks and good luck again!

this is a good issue to be post and transparent.

I opened my account – patriotwargamer – and started posting – several times a day – approximately 4 weeks ago.

I logged in every single day, without any problems (sometimes logging in several times a day.)

Then 5/6 days ago – I tried to login, and it wouldn't accept my password. I tried several times, to no avail.

I then checked my password against my 2 copies - I had handwritten down (in case there was a change in my notepad , without me realizing it)

The notepad pass, and the 2 copies were identical.

I rewrote on another notepad doc, to make sure anyway. This didn't work either.

I contacted steemit via twitter (see my screenshots of conversations).

Nothing has been resolved, no email - nothing.
(and not accepting of my new account application, so I can at least move my posts to there, and keep writing).

It seems to me there is either big security issue - which people need to be aware of - or steemit are just not behaving like the multi 100 million dollar company they are supposed to be.

It's a very amateur customer service setup, imo.

Your name was given to me by someone, who said you might be able to help.

Like I said in the last tweet to steemit.– is tantamount to theft, if my account(or anyone else's), can be arbitrarily blocked, without recourse.

I was enjoying this immensely, being part of this new platform, but now I must admit .
I'm getting my suspicions all is not what it seems here.....

So, if you could of any help in resolving this issue, great. I would really appreciate it.

Thanks again, if you can help out.
