Liketu! The Image Sharing Frontend On Hive | Data On Posts, Comments, Users | March 2023
Liketu has been one of the Hive dapps that has been quietly but consistently building their product for the past few years. In the last period they seems to be gaining more and more traction and keeps growing their user base.
Let’s take a look at some of the data.
As mentioned, Liketu has a focus on photos. Users can share their photos, make some commentary, and earn rewards. Its not a 100% copy of Instagram, as usually users share more than one picture and give a bit more explanation on them. The frontend is overall with a focus on photos and has a nice UI.
Here we will take a look at the activity on the platform, the overall number of posts and comments, and the number of users. The top content creators for the last month will be presented as well.
The period that we will be looking at is 2022 – 2023.
First let us see the number of posts coming from Liketu.
Here is the chart.
We can see the sharp growth at the beginning of 2022, reaching a peak in May 2022 with a 140 posts per day. A drop in the summer, and a growth again. Another drop in November and again a growth afterwards, reaching another peak of 160 posts a day.
There has been some drawbacks in 2022, but overall the number of posts has an uptrend in 2022. This is a growth in what has been a very bearish year for the market with an overall drop in the crypto prices.
The chart above was only about posts.
What about comments?
Here is the number of comments made per day from Liketu.
On the commetn side of thinsg we can see a lot of oscilations, but overall a small number of comments. Users are usuing the site to post mainy, but not for commenitng.
Somewhere between 10 to 30 comments are made per day on the frontend.
Posts and Comments
When we combine the posts and comments on one chart we get this.
We can see the dominance of the posts here as well, with the comments being the white on the top of the chart.
The overall uptrend in noticable here as well.
When we polot the numbers on a monthly timeframe we get this.
Between 3k to 4k posts and comments per month.
We can notice the overall uptrend here as well, with February 2023 reaching an ATH for the number of posts and comments. March being longer will for sure have another ATH.
How about the numbers of the authors on the Liketu. How many accounts are posting?
Here is a chart for the monthly numbers of accounts posting.
The number of MAUs on Liketu has also seeing a growth in the period. Starting with just around 200 MAUs back in January 2022, and reaching a 700 MAUs in February 2023. I expect a 1000 MAUs in the following months.
Next the number of unique authors that posted from Liketu. These are authors that posted directly through the frontend.
The number of unique Liketu authors is showing continuous growth.
There is a total of 2.7k unique authors that have used Liketu to post.
In the last month alone there was 150 new accounts that have tried out the app for the first time.
Authors That Posted The Most
Here is the rank of the authors that posted the most in 2023.
Quite an even distribution 😊.
The @borniet account is on the top with 75 posts, followed closely from @bradleyarrow and @jlphotographyart. Thes accounts have been averaging around one post a day on Liketu.
Overall Liketu has seen some decent growth in the numbers of post and authors on its app in what’s has been one of the worst year for crypto. Everyone likes photos, and now they have a nice frontend on Hive to use it for that. Also, they seem to find a right balance in terms of type of posts for Hive, where posts are not just one photo, but a combination of few with a story behind them.
All the best

liketu is the best image sharing posts
Very interesting to see how liketu grows in a market where everything went down (2022).
Do you have data on monetization? it would be interesting to see the rewards received on a dapp that only has 2700 users. That comparison beats any social network for sure.
That's good to see
I think Liketu has a lot of potential so it's nice to see it's growing steadly

Lovely stats report as always, however, one of your images says "unique Ecency Users" instead of Liketu

Oh wow! I am really tempted to register on Liketu (an IG alternative) and 3speak (a YT alternative). I have so many contents I can't do all. Hehe! For now, let me just focus on PeakD as I am still learning to navigate here.
Lovely stats, and thank you for taking the time to dig them up and show them here.
Of course we track these as well but I've pulled some others that might be of interest.
This is the gini coefficient for followers. 0 is perfect equality - every user has same number of followers - and 1 is for perfect inequality - 1 user has all the followers.
There's a lot to digest here. Moving forward there is a couple of things Liketu users can look forward to. In the immediate near term, within 2 months, a mobile experience is coming. That has been a strong pain point for us for over a year.
Along with that, there will be a thread like feature we'll be calling something else which will allow users to post even more micro / bitesized content that is not part of their 'main' blog.
We do a lot of stats mining because user growth to us is the most important. We believe optimizing for more users increases network effects, so a crucial step we're taking is to democratize the curation such that our curation efforts will be based on signals from users of liketu themselves.
To achieve this, we've had to revamp the 'Engagement league', work out relative network influence via eigenvector/katz centrality studies and then work out a score for each user. This is kind of like an on-chain rep score. This score is then used to calculate the 'weight' of their votes (reacts) on posts. After a given amount of time, the Liketu curation account will vote for what the users deem the best posts.
There is no world where the opinions of the few outweight the opinions of the many. The challenge was to find a way to see which users carry the most weight based on their activities on chain. More proof of brain, and more optimizing for attention is the way forward.
Damn ... I see you have your data :)
You obviously are taking a detailed and data driven approach to the product, great to see that.
Very curious about the upcoming mobile app!
Wow! I am so excited for everything that you have mentioned above, Sir! I genuinely love liketu and it seems like I am enticed to use it most of the time recently. Thank you so much for the great initiatives and I am thrilled now. More blessings to you and the team. And most of all, success for all your projects and development. !PIZZA
Fantastic overview, thanks for sharing. I am looking forward to the new app and other developments.
Very happy to see the growth of this app. While I am not much of a photographer myself I do enjoy seeing what other people post there.

So I can just share a photo on liketu? Just a photo with a few words?
I had no idea😂
Cómo siempre excelente información mi amigo ya voy a investigar sobre esa aplicación para utilizarlo.
It is really nice to know about all this analysis and thanks for sharing.
I think Liketu is one of the frontends that I haven’t explored but I like to see posts from there tho.
People there travel a lot and give us vivid details, it’s interesting to be at home but get to explore the lifestyle of the people of Thailand by mere pictures and words.
Ps: @dalz I read somewhere that you’re the “number guy”, you sure proved that🙃
happy to see the success @liketu is gaining. I have seen many people using Liketu and getting benefited from it. i wish them more and more success in the coming future.
