My Live Journal Analyses

I got this link from roina_arwen. I decided to see how the analysis would change if I subtracted comunities from my friends count.

This is the analysis generated when I included the communities in the friends count:

Your Livejournal Analasys


Your Livejournal's Age


According to the information you provided, your Livejournal was created on 2001-04-02, meaning that your journal has been around for 649 days. What does this mean?


With over a year of LJ experience under your belt, you can safely call yourself an experienced user. If you are still actively using your journal by now, then chances are you are here to stay. You probably don't add friends nearly as often as you used to, and more than likely have removed a bunch of people that used to be there. Staying in an online community for a year is something of an achievement, you know.


Your Livejournal Friends


Now let's talk about your friends list. You indicated that you have 37 LJ friends.
A good, considerable number of friends. This list probably represents a spectrum of both your good close friends as well as a number of passing acquaintances. A few of them might be folks you met through LJ, or simply journals that you found interesting, as well as adding random people back who added you at some point in the past. A fairly reasonable friends list.


You also have been listed as a friend by 24 users.
It's getting there, but still a little thin. Your journal has been around a while, and chances are you don't add or get added much these days. Your interests and habits are obvious, and the people who are going to notice you have noticed you for the most part. Not to say your list won't grow, but by now your list of friends is fairly developed. And you like it that way.


Finally in this category, you have a friends to friends-of ratio of 1.5416666666667.
This is a relatively high ratio, meaning you add quite a few more people than have added you to their friends list. This may be a sign that you tend to add people fairly randomly to your list, although there is also a good chance that you simply do not advertise your own journal much, and don't expect too many people to be adding you back.


Your Posting Habits


You have indicated that to date, you have made 302 entries into your Livejournal. This gives us an average post rate of 0.4653312788906 posts per day.
This indicates that you update your journal at least once a week, sometimes twice or even three times. You probably include weekly or bi-weekly updates, and the occasional post in thrown in as a kind of rant of sorts. You like to summarize what's going on in your life without going into too many minute details and boring yourself, or your friends.


Your Commenting Habits


According to your information, you have posted 884 comments and have recieved 284 of them over the lifetime of your journal. Let's see what this information can mean.


First of all, this indicates that you have been getting an average of 0.94039735099338 comments for every Livejournal entry that you make.
You get at least one comment for every other post, and sometimes you can expect one for each entry that you make in your journal. You might think this is less than average, but don't despair. Unless you have a habit of making posts that incite comments, chances are your friends just can't think of anything interesting to say.


A more fair measure of how many comments you get might be your average number of comments per post per friend, which is 0.025416144621443. This may seem low to you, especially if you have lots of friends.


The final statistic is the ratio of your comments to comments you get. Your ratio is 3.112676056338. The higher the ratio, the more talkative you are compared to your friends, comment-wise.


That's it for now! Perhaps there was something insightful in this analasys, and perhaps you learned absolutely nothing. Feel free to post your results on your own Livejournal, and invite your friends to take the Livejournal Analasys today!

The only real difference between the two analyses si the paragraph relating to friends to friends-of ratio:

Finally in this category, you have a friends to friends-of ratio of 1.2083333333333.
This is an average ratio, meaning you have nearly (or maybe exactly) the same number of friends as people who have listed you as a friend. There's a good chance you add back everyone who has added you, and only add people who haven't added you if they are a good friend and chances are they'll be adding you back anyway.


I originally joined Live Journal to rant about something, and got caught up enough in the process of creating a journal and picking out styles and whatnot, that I'd kind of cooled down on the reason for the rant. For long time, I tried to post when I had something "thoughtful" to post. I didn't figure out the whole Friends view systems at first, so I was sort of sporadic at remembering to read other people's journals.

By now, I've enough friends who write the sort of content that I'd get if I called them once or more a day, and I try to do something similar. Live Journal has become a way of keeping with the daily stuff in each others' lives, while we're busy enough that we might not keep in touch often enough otherwise.

My mom asked me to email her every day, as one of my New Year's Resolutions. I'm not out to my mom about being poly, and it's not something I choose to hide in my journal, so I haven't pointed her toward this journal. Instead, I've been editing my daily reports for her consumption - it doesn't take too many changes.

I probably don't use live journal that it's envisioned, but it's become a habit. In my own way.
