Social Media Post Longevity

I was scrolling along on Twitter in the wee hours of the morning (like ya do) when I came upon a tweet referencing this infographic by Kenny Song @kenny.kenray about the longevity of posts on various social media platforms. I was intrigued by the data listed for each platform. I began to think about whether I agreed with his results or not. So, I figured I would conduct an informal test by creating a post about this infographic and asking folks to comment/reply when they see the post. Is it within the time frame listed or beyond?

This blog post is part of the informal test. As you can see in the infographic, a blog post has a one-year lifespan. So, my question to you dear reader is,

“Are you seeing this blog post during the one-year timeframe or after?”

One year starts at 3:30 am Central on Wednesday, August 18, 2021. In either case, please comment below the date when you are reading this. 

How will I measure the results?

Results will come from a combination of post stats from this website as well as comments listed below. Since we won’t know the results for at least a year, but more likely two years, which would give a year-to-year comparison. So, I thank you for participating in this informal test. Cheers!
