| https://www.facebook.com/notes/tokio-hotel-...425920504146406The BTK App was released one year ago yesterday, so I thought it would be fun to go through all the posts and figure out who posted what, who comments the most, what kind of things were posted, etc etc, and lay them all out in pretty ways for the lot of y'all.
And, oh god, I was wrong. After going through every post and reply on the app at LEAST five times, I can no longer process numbers and Bill's face has faded to white noise from having seen it so many times. I got it done, though, thanks to the MOST APPRECIATED assitance of both Hexenhasel and Lizard. THANK YOU BOTH for helping to save my sanity. *loves*
So, without further adeu, we have app stats!
All told there were 805 posts made on the app, be they photo, video, or text. Bill barely edged Tom out, posting 55% of the app content over the course of the year.
Aw yeah, now that's a sexy graph.
Over all Bill managed to stay on the top of every single category, which is kind of interesting because it really seemed to me like Tom was Captain Text Post over the course of the year, but apparently not. Bill posted 53% of the app posts, 54% of the videos, and nearly 57% of the photos. I don't have to write out Tom's percentages, too, right? I mean, just subtract Bill's from 100 and there you go.
These are AMAZING, right?
Bill ALSO took the crown on text posts as well, posting just shy of 53% of the replies that were given. What a little social butterfly. ;)
So red and blue!
So there you go, your snazzy stats for the app! I hope you enjoyed!
What, you wanted more info than that? Graphs that were actually interesting? Okay, fine, here's some more detailed information. :D
When it comes to videos it's not all that surprising that Tom took the cake when it came to posting things from Youtube, posting 54% of the Youtube videos posted. I still remember his blog and the fact that it was like 12 Youtube videos every day. Bill was much more of a fan of posting videos of himself or Tom or the both of them hanging out together. Personal videos and videos of the twins made up nearly 36% of the video posts, while Youtube things ate up the other 64%.
Ooh, that's a lot nicer.
Photos were really sort of all over the place. Pictures of the twins, pictures of their pets, pictures of thing Tom found online. Coming up with categories for the photos was a sort of Herculean effort. And, because I didn't want to make a whole new catergory for two 'Pictures of Tom in the Studio' or one 'Pictures of Bill Near Tom's Art' the numbers on these AREN'T going to add up to the 468 photos that were taken over the course of the year. It's close, though, really only six photos off. Pictures of the twins and just the twins made up 31% of the photos posted, and pictures of Bill kicked Tom's ass six ways from Sunday. 69% of the app photos of one twin or another were of Bill. 69%! There were as many photos of Tom, total, as there were self portraits of Bill (but more photos Tom took of Bill than photos Bill took of himself). Insanity!
Bill knows he's pretty. And this is my favourite graph of all of them.
Jesus, would you look at that thing? It's all rainbowlicious. It also answers a BURNING QUESTION I know you've all been wondering: How many sunset photos DID Bill take? 16. It seemed like more, didn't it?
Speaking of things that seemed like they were everywhere, the FILTERS. Man alive. It seemed like every single photo was black and white or sepia toned, or, more recently, some kind of melted film thing that I didn't know how to categorize. ALL the photos were retouched! All of them! Or, really, only almost 17%. It seemed like a hell of a lot more, though, didn't it?
Bill loved his sepia tones (and filters in general, posting 79% of the filtered photos himself), whereas Tom liked Black and White most.
When it came to replies, Bill was a big fan of replying on posts that he made, posting 69% of his replies on his own posts. There's a lot of 69's going on with Bill in these numbers, aren't there? Anyway, since he posted 55% of the content, it would make sense that he'd have a slightly higher percentage of his own posts that he replied on, since there were just MORE of them to reply on, but he really did sort of give Tom's posts the shaft. Tom also favoured to his own posts, but at only 57% of his reply total. So, I guess if you want to get a reply from Bill, focus your comments on Bill's posts. If you want Tom to say hi to you, comment on his. It's not a guaruntee of getting the reply you want, but, statistically, you're getting a little bit of an edge.
The twins never gave me a happy birthday wish, but I've seen plenty of people grouse about the twins handing them out to other people. You'd think they were dropping personal greeting like beads at Mardi Gras, but they really only made up 2% of the replies given. Maybe it's just easy to focus on other people getting personal attention that you aren't, idk. Thank you notes from the twins and comments about them being in the studio, near the studio, going to the studio, having just left the studio, and acknowledging that the studio exists made up a lot more of the reply totals, though that was still only like 12%.
Going back through the app content, while arduous as all get out, was interesting because it meant I got to see trends as they went instead of vaguely remembering things, and I got to notice things I hadn't noticed when things were being posted new. Like, I'd never noticed before how often Tom replies to things as being his. My band, my boy, my little brother, my guitar. Mine mine mine. Bill tended more towards calling things 'ours'. Our studio, our dogs. And the filtered photos that turned out not to be as prevalent as I'd thought, they really didn't start showing up regularly until a couple of months in.
And, lastly, I've seen a lot of people talking about how the twins have 'forgotten' about the app (though not this week. I swear they knew I was trying to tally things so they were all over posting as much as they could) and that they don't post as much anymore. Alas, that's true, but it's also rather well to be expected. Everyone likes their shiny toys the most when they're new, and, after awhile, sometimes you just don't have all that much to post anymore. You can only take so many pictures of your food before you get bored with it, you know? And considering how many people (myself included) started up 365 day photo journal things and then petered off about about two weeks, I'm afraid that it just goes to show that the twins are...a lot like the rest of us. But, hey, at about 1/3 of a cent per post, the app is a pretty good investment. Hard to complain about a deal like that.
So many posts.
Since I do the app recap posts by the week, I thought it would be fun to also have the posts broken down that way as well. There's a small gitch in this where I go from Sunday-Saturday to Saturday-Friday (like I do in the recaps), so, yes, I know there's a off number. After going through the posts so many times, though, I don't even CARE, I'm not going through them again. Aside from one short week, the rest is a-okay. :)
And there you have it! A year in the app in far too many graphs with far too many percentages bandied about. All in all, I'd call it a good year
