If you visit disqus.com/about, you’ll notice an interesting little statistic presented in their slider:
20 million comments a month
80 million likes a month
That’s an average of 4 likes per comment. This immediately made me curious: What’s the likes-to-comments ratio of Discourse…
- on Meta?
- on some of its biggest forums?
I’m not really planning to draw any kind of conclusion from the metrics. It’d just be really cool tidbit of information. My hypothesis is that it’s higher.
As far as impressive metrics go, I reckon my to-be-favorite Discourse metric will be “# of pages read per user” combined with “time spent on site”.
