Tailrank Meme Index Rate and the Holiday Season

Thought you guys might find this insteresting. This graph shows the rate of the number of stories we’re promoting to Tailrank per day.

Notice the nice normal cyclical flow with the troughs being weekends and the peaks being weekdays.

See the spike right in the middle? Those were the midterm elections.

See the gap at the end? That’s Thanksgiving. The little blip is Friday (where some people go back go work).

Other than that for the most part it’s a normal cyclical rate. I wouldn’t have expected so much stable behavior.

Notice that it’s rising again now that it’s Monday.

I’ll publish the same graph once we hit Christmas.
