@jacobbogers I don't know what you stats are referring to? I do some Google Analytics for FCC now and then, if that is what you mean?

Did you know that...?
  • We have a list of 1501 campsites to date
  • One campsite doesn't have a city and therefore there are not coordinates (city = specific name)
  • There are also about 10 duplicate records, suggesting that the number of campsites could be actually around 1490
  • From those, 505 are campsites of less than 10 people; FB doesn't provide info about groups of that size when searched using the Group extension
  • Therefore we could get complete data for about 990 campsites
  • The average size is 107 members; however the median (a better estimate for this case) was 36, indicating a large number of small sized campsites and a few with a very large amount of members
  • It is possible that the largest number of members reached about 2459 for one location (currently we are investigating which one, but it seems the Local Leaders Group); other groups with high membership (more than 1000) are: London, Delhi, Atlanta, Chicago, Seattle, Bengaluru, San Francisco, New York City or Toronto
  • For those campsites we got data, the oldest date at which someone updated the page was 2015-06-28, while the most recent updated campsite was just yesterday (when the analysis was done)
  • Around 600-700 campsites out of 990 might have updated their pages between the 15th of the last month and yesterday; the rest seemed to be spread between 2015-06-28 and 2016-06-14 (results still not clear...)
There are still some discrepancies in the data that require further investigation, but I think the aggregate numbers are ok...
