Our previous post contained a comparison of the Facebook presence of five cultural institutions from major Polish cities, including the City Culture Institute of Gdańsk, Katowice: City of Gardens, Krakow Festival Office, Workshops of Culture in Lublin and Wrocław 2016. We were interested in determining the most popular content and gauging content popularity depending on the type of information published. This time we set out to visualise the results of slightly more detailed research done for each fan page.
Before committing ourselves to any analyses, it seems sensible to have a general look at the data at hand. This way, we may be able to notice some trends or detect any irregularities resulting from, e.g. errors while acquiring the data using the site’s API. Being able to view user interactions with posts on Wrocław 2016’s fan page in three different levels of statistical detail, makes it possible to more accurately assess its peak performance periods during last year. On a more general note, our charts reflect a seasonality of cultural activities, and more specifically – the idiosyncrasies of the European Capital of Culture celebrations with strong emphasis put on the opening and closing events during the celebration year.
