    The following information is shared with permission from the fabulous La Magnética who have been tracking stats for #MuseumWeek.  Please note: These are for Monday-Wednesday ONLY.

    The graph has grown huge, so to get to an image than one can read we have to trim a lot of edges and nodes (otherwise we would have 57.000 nodes, and names and dots will overlay all over the graph). That means that only the most active profiles are included in the graph and there is less change from one day to the next than in the whole graph, but the whole graph is impossible to draw.

    graph-museums-week-2-logoThere are about 4.000 Twitter profiles in the picture, and in the analysis we consider the 57.740 that have tweeted with the hashtag. For all the calculations we use the whole set.

    Some useful information from the first three days:

    • We have 104.336 tweets
    • From 57.740 different profiles.

    That means an average as low as 1,8 tweets per user. And it has not increased since Monday. 

    • Most users participate with a single tweet, in many cases a question they want to ask to a particular museum
    • Each day we have many new users but few repeated users. This is good as far as it widens the scope of the action. The only risk is to be sure they are satisfied. If we had many repeating users we could deduce their satisfaction from their behavior. In this case we cannot. Of course this is not the same as saying that they are not satisfied. But I think that trying to assess the users’ satisfaction would be an interesting point. Take into account that this 1,8 average includes museums and some very engaged people.
    • 9.941 users have received at least one mention or RT. This is also a good hint of the spread of the action. There is a wide degree of horizontal communication, not only bottom (user) to top (museum).

    Average distance between two random profiles: 5,5. Almost exactly as the folk culture 6 degrees of separation. Quite good for an action that uses so many different languages, and where country is a major factor. The maximum distance is 15.

    In the graphs you will see 4 big groups:

    • Italy, France and Spain
    • The central group that connect the three country groups. This group contains a majority on British museums, but it also includes museums and people from other countries. As it happened in the study of the museum ecosystem, speaking the world language makes it much easier to relate to museums and users from any other country.

    TOP 10 reflecting the relevance, the place in the Twitter talk, the users most closely related with other users:
