So I’m about to be a guinea pig…
And show you why I feel that Appics might be the most important project on Steem right now! Especially when it comes to actually getting people to use this stuff every day and engage with each other…
I wanted to test the engagement levels on different social media platforms, and make the same ‘meme‘ post on each. I chose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and of course @Appics .
And yes, while Appics / Steem do reward you for commenting and curating, that doesn’t always mean people will…My thinking was, Appics is brand new, it’s fresh and the Steem community in general, tends to be more supportive for all creators. No matter how many followers you may have…
(Given you spend the time with them!)
So let’s dive into the numbers and see what we can find.
1. Facebook (2156 ‘Friends’)
24 ‘likes’ and absolutely zero comments. Which I found interesting because generally, Facebook is a haven for engagement. And while not my ‘highest’ number of friends and followers, I tend to get pretty good engagement numbers when I stick funny memes and content up. So 24 likes…Zero comments in the land of Zuckerberg.
2. Twitter (174 followers on CTPtalk account, Retweeted to 10,500 on JonGOlson account)
This really surprised me. Only 3 retweet, 10 likes and zero comments. These numbers were very small when it came to engagement. Now being fair, the account that created the original tweet only had 174 followers. But my main account did re-tweet it, which is my largest social media following. And usually VERY engaging. Really small numbers from Twitter with this meme.
3. Instagram (108 followers)
7 ‘likes’ and 2 comments. Quick back story on my Instagram account. This is brand new and I started it about a month ago. For some reason, Instagram ‘banned‘ my original account that I had for years and I was stuck creating a brand new one. So the numbers are low and expected to be low. But still more engagement than Twitter….? Very weird…
And now it’s time for….
This just blows me away…Especially when you combine it with my other numbers on Steem….
(Appics direct numbers)
(Steemit direct numbers)
O.k., let’s not even MENTION the fact that the Appics post is generating $2.90 in APX rewards and $7.51 in Steem / Steem Power as well…This is a huge deal for a lot of content creators because we can be generating real rewards…Right away!
The number one issue facing content creators is being rewarded for your art and content WHILE you are building your following. Sure you can get fancy stuff from the bigger social media platforms…If you are Kim Kardashian….
But this is the beauty of projects on Steem, specifically @Appics …You see, you can actually get REWARDED for your passion. While growing your followers and building awesome relationships in the process.
Ahhh but here’s the best part….
I have 2375 followers on Steem / Appics. And we’re only getting started!
So while not 10,500 followers like on my Twitter account, I still have a healthy amount of people I’ve networked with, and built relationships with over the past 23 months…I’m GROWING everyday as are the relationships with my followers here.
Check out those comments though….7 different people commented on my meme!!!!
Are you keeping score yet? Because that’s 5 more than my Instagram post, and 7 more than both Twitter and Facebook.
@Appics is JUST getting started and with the release of their APX token….This thing is positioned to take off!
They ‘get it‘ when it comes to content creators. Not everyone wants to write Pulitzer Prize winning articles on social media…Sometimes we just wanna take a picture of our kids. Or maybe a quick video of a dance routine. Or heck, a silly meme for @ClickTrackProfit ….
And that’s how we act on traditional social media.
So if we want to be taken seriously as a ‘social blockchain’ that thrives on community, the engagement HAS to be a priority.
It’s about to get REALLY exciting for this platform, and I’m so pumped up to see what the next few months have ins tore for @Appics
