An alternative for “follower”s world
After its first decade user interactions going down dramatically namely people are tend to be a spectator instead of sharing. The “i” stands for influence but of course a fresh and more ethical type of influence: 2020 style.
In order to find the most organic thingies on Instagram probably one of our common instincts (or any kind of social medium even porn sites and look for the global popularity of the “amateur” category). Social media gives us the urge that we are looking for the raw material or in common terms: be yourself honey.
formula of the i factor
Firstly, we have to accept that the monetization processes of any kind of medium naturally degrade the quality or organic-ness of the content. Probably because of that the DIY culture or any kind of amateur movements easily find attention, sponsor, fund etc. most of the time these days. You know, especially during these times marketing addicted to organic.
The “i” factor trying to measure the organic coefficient on Instagram users. It’s a very basic and intuitive formula and by the way math -and English as you see- is not my strong side but the results which you’ll see encourages me to go for it(or in my case jo for it). Although it can be a general measure for profiles in any social media too.
a demo for formula
if you can’t obtain the RSS, easily calculated through 1,5 x ALPP
Naturally the higher number of followers cause less “i” scores but this is already the case. Formula assumes that more followers endangers your uniqueness on your online existence. The score itself encourages the users toward more niche profiles, restraining the mainstream tendencies. In other words, changing the online celebrity perception. Upholds the daily, the mundane.
But, how do we measure the organic-ness or spontaneity, genuineness beyond our personal measures? Of course, the “i” won’t guarantee the original/organic user but a candidate for your exploration process. Basically it aims to change the common attitude toward follower/credit/value correlation. And encourage the user for more interaction, another tool for social exploration.
As you see in the results, any kind of brands or celebrities gain much lesser scores than average, common individual(if you try with your numbers you’ll see). Besides the scoreboard itself I think gives us funny and plausible results I hope it will inspire further studies about it.
Beyond the cruel and vulgar systems of quantification of human interaction like numbers of likes, shares, comments are so non-contemporary that the “organic” interaction started to be less performed on any kind of social media. I think, it is stemming from the over-gamification of the application but this is an another topic for discuss. Sturdy features overrides the main function.
The “i” factor actually a new feature suggestion for Instagram, it can be easily a substitute for followers/following numbers. I think they should be classified at least optional to hide them or not.
The most exciting thing about the i factor is that it can be re-define our assumptions about being a celebrity. Indeed, our times already prefer the local one for their online feeds and also the “other”s local too… In sum, any kind of authenticity even the outsider. “i” coefficient tries to operationalize the organic user.
Footnotes for formula
*RSS(Recent story seen) numbers cannot be obtained from third parties but you can easily estimate the number and check its reliability through your numbers. One and half times average like per post (ALPP) give you a acceptable RSS. ( 1.5 x ALPP = RSS ) Please try it with your account.
*Again I’m not a mathematician, statistician, but looking for help for further studies.

the (i) coefficient as a social media interaction index: a prospective case study

abstract: (NBSM) what is the next big social medium? i coefficient and its execution on prospective instagram case study
( “Vero” ADM collaboration study)
dünyanın 2010 yılında tanıştığı 10. yılını devirerek yerini hala sağlamlaştırmış gözüken instagramın aslında son dönemlerini yaşadığını tahmin edebiliyoruz. birçok farklı başlık altında tartışılan (referans listesi eklenecek) bir sonraki büyük sosyal olay medyum ne olacaktır sorularına niceliksel bir sonuç getirmek amacıyla i(influencer) katsayısının ig case study’lerin sunumu olacaktır.

öncelikle, nedir bu i coefficient?
post başına ortalama like (average like per post: ALPP) + son story toplam görüntülenme sayısı( recent story seen: RSS) / followers (f)

kısaca i = ALPP + RSS / f

hipotetik bir local influencer’in “i” katsayısı hesaplanışı
alpp(100) + rss(900) / f(1000) = 1 sabiti
 i puanı 1 olan 1000 takipçili bir kullanıcının gerçek bir i influencer olmasının kuvvetle muhtemel  olduğu varsayılmıştır. ADM koordinatörlüğünde yapılan pilot çalışmada i katsayısını hesapladığımız kişinin kabul ettiğimiz anlamda ( objective) influencer olduğunu varsaymak için ortalama 1 puana ihtiyacı olduğunu görüyoruz.


notlar
a) öncelikle rss’nin yayınlanan son storynin 24 saatin sonunda total görüntülenme sayısı üzerinden olduğunun altını çizmek gerekiyor. bu bize incelenen vakanın güncel etkileşim verilerini veriyor.
 b) global i’ ların (e.g kim kardashian i(0.125) me i(0.585) another coworker on adm i(0.427) ). bu arada ben ve arkadaşımın sosyal medya davranışlarınızda influencer olma motivasyonu bulunmamaktadır ve işin daha ironik yanı ise i katsayısından değerlendirecek olursak biz kim kardashian’dan(kendisinin kabul edilmiş bir influencer olduğunu varsayarak) daha başarılı sosyal medya kullanıcıları olduğumuz ortaya çıkıyor.

b)
i katsayısı görüldüğü üzere tamamen like ve izlenme sayıları üzerinden hesaplanan bir index ancak
ikinci etapta yorum sayıları ve like sayıları üzerinden ikinci bir katsayı elde edilmesi ve influencer kavramının niceliksel anlamda ölçülebilir olduğunun ispatı üzerindeki çalışmalar devam etmektedir.

c)
muhtemel ikinci i(II) formülünün şöyle olması beklenmektedir:
(ALPP (average like per post) + ACPP (average comment per post) / f(followers)
me i(II) 0.147 , kim kardashian 0.050, same friend/co-worker 0.193

d) iki katsayıda da görüldüğü ve birbirini doğruladığı üzere
iki sıradan kullanıcının da kim kardashian’dan daha yüksek i skorları elde ediliyor.

e) herhangi bir sosyal medya mediumundaki organik kullanıcıyla inorganik influencer arasındaki
muhtemel i skorlarının uzun ölçekli(örneğin 1 yıl) oranlarının bize instagramın bir medyum olarak niceliksel değerinin verilmesi hedeflenmektedir. tahmin de edileceği üzere grafik geçen yıllar içinde instagramın aleyhine ilerlemektedir.

d) facebook ve instagram mecraları i skorları organik/inorganik kullanıcı/influencer karşılaştırılarak bir sonraki yeni büyük sosyal medya olayının kronolojik düzlemde istatistiki tahmini yapılmaya çalışılacaktır.

e) çalışmada bir ek veri olarak instagramdaki ve facebooktaki son 1 ay/yıl/10 yıldaki organik/inorganik içeriklerin sayısal detayları/datası önem teşkil etmektedir.

! ADM Facebook inc.’in bu veriyi tüketiciyle paylaşmaya davet etmektedir.

Anti Data Manifesto

You can’t delete the idea
We can erase the data.

We have to get rid of all the data. Trace your personal data and delete as you can, it’s not you. Never have been. This is what we need. Data mean bitch. The more cookies we leave behind, the more we become bitches of their marketing campaigns. Burn down all of it.

ADM BITCH: ANTI DATA MOVEMENT


Not only the software data version of yourself also the hardware, the real life data: All the hardcopies, childhood photos, all the material, all the papers, diaries, records, all the thingies which assert any kind of definition about us. Burn down. Anti data, become spontaneous, genuine and free.

I have a dream bitch. Stop bitching and become a free human being. All the definitions, all the documents: burn them. Tomorrow, in the brightest future we will also bring down the ID. Get rid of all, any kind of documents which define us. Definition means incarceration, condemnation, conviction, and demarcation of the self. Get rid of them. The more you delete, the more you get freedom. I can guarantee this. In the beginning you are deleting for yourself, your personal freedom we are not naive we know they are not deleted permanently but only for now. This is the job and vision of ADM heroes. We are going to find our heroes, but for now you should be your own hero: be your own fresh new start. This is a long journey we have, you have.

Start with baby steps, start with your bitch accounts, become alien/anonimize in your media only recognizable for your preferred acquaintances. Delete, get rid of bitch relatives, stupid friends, old meaningless schoolmates.

They are trying to define you, no one can define you! not even you! You can only continue becoming, experiencing yourself, delete any kind of past.

"Start from something to nothing."


 Become more anonymous with your accounts. Data is going to be illegal, crime against humanity. We will prevail, because they, the corporations wants more, defines more about yourself  in every fucking single day; and are addicted to cookies for this. Data is going to create its own end. It’s not so-called innocent childhood photos in your family album it’s the data, incarceration of the human soul.

We want disposable shares, profiles, instantaneous media which facilitates being in the moment together. This is all we need: a new anonymous, genuine, free media. Anonymity is human right and data is fascism. Delete your personal past, all kind of it. And you will have all the new personal space for genuine, real experience. Becoming free from past only comes with deleting the past permanently. We will have tons of lawsuits and prevail against them in one way or another. We will destroy the recording clouds burn the biggest bitch, whore house down. Delete all the past records, history, personal confidential materials of the internet permanently, irreversibly. We will prevail my friend, accumulate, become a bigger family, people will understand our cause, our sincerity. This is the side of human freedom, not a marketing campaign. This is the new age, completion of human soul, soul will prevail, our cause will prevail, get rid of all the burdens of the past, and gain all the peace you need.

Don't be anxious or feel hopeless my friend, we will find our heroes which save us from the tyranny of the data. As I said, start with yourself for your own freedom, become your own hero. We will complete the journey permanently. Start with the smaller deleting doses and be addicted to the freedom. Start with a small pieces of disgusting personal past for instance diaries are diarrheas of your past get rid of it but don’t be afraid of writing, creating or sharing but also don’t be afraid of deleting. It will save you, immune your soul, the fire. Start with the traumatizing family records burn them. You will see that there is no bad or good record, all kind of records are burden for your soul. Data only a one side of it. But heroes will come, sun will shine for our souls which stuck in the past, the day will come.


For the seekers of freedom: 

ANTI DATA MOVEMENT! 

ANTI DATA MEDIA! 

DATA IS CRIME!



You can’t delete the idea,
We can erase the data,
irreversibly.
