@alicejiang1 yeah - it's crazy to think that within 8 months, we've gotten to more than 1m views a month on our Medium publication.

Sorry people I have been away but I have been busy with other projects recently... One of them is a project for FCC, working on twitter's data.

@krisgesling man: you don't have to thank me! FCC should THANK you for all your effort!
@SamAI-Software: EXCELLENT JOB!!!! You have really make a VERY GOOD EFFORT!!! Asking you: whenever possible, if you can add my project to your list of other projects analysing the data, I will really appreciate that! Some observations are welcome (either I hope not to make a lot of changes, no much time, so please if we can consider the project just a demo that will be very appreciated!)


People:

Planning a summary of the DSR projects focused on social media.

The idea would be to prepare a compilation of the projects around FCC done during the last months and prepare a short medium article, just as a demonstration. Currently projects done are:

  • Facebook: @samosale's three.js project, @alicejiang1's map, and my data
  • chatroom: it is where more data exists; @koustuvsinha's chatroom activity and I will work for some data for @samosale to prepare a dynamic ranking (sorry @samosale: I was thinking what to do but now I think I found how! it is going to be nice!)
  • twitter: just checking; managed to prepare a script to extract data from twitter based on a hack of Mining the Social Web; hard!... and it could be A LOT of data so I have to select some... plan? some stats plus a cloud of the connectivity between friends and followers; it could be big so may not be using d3.js for this one... WHO WANT TO HELP?
  • forum: some few stats about it using google analytics? not sure about that...

We won't have any info about reddit or medium, although we can use the stats that @QuincyLarson published here?

Something left? I will absent preparing all the data, it is taking a lot of effort to validate the info, etc... It will be a summary of the activities of this group, so nice!

@SamAI-Software checked in my computer... when I resized it seems that the number of tables are so much that my browser almost crashed... I don't have the best of the computers but I wonder if that wouldn't affect performance of those having low-quality hardware, no idea...

@evaristoc you mean that when you resize the screen, it updates the bar charts and so your computer is having hard times? :) Did I got it right?

@SamAI-Software I didn't manage to see any resize... anyway: my firefox is giving me trouble for some time, so it might be just that...
@SamAI-Software I tried again and worked just fine, after caching...
I see now that no need of refresh for resizing the charts!!!

Asking you: whenever possible, if you can add my project to your list of other projects analysing the data

It's not my list :) It's open source. If you made analysis, you can push it into README with a link

Or you can give me a link and I will edit by myself

People:

Talking again about the objective of the pilot report for medium. The idea could talk about how the data shows the importance and the level of the social dynamic in FCC.
Example:

No other gitter chat room has had this level of interaction: reaching levels of 7-9 messages per minute!!!
No other gitter chat room has that level of new comers per minute!
The increasing activity of the Facebook groups is wow!
The number of loyal people to FCC social media platforms could be amazing!
etc

That is the story that I am suggesting we should tell...

Only to add that I would really like to give room to ALL OF YOU, specially those who have been contributing with ideas or projects in the past but due to the nature of the topic, I will have to leave some projects for another occasion...
