Conversation Analytics

The graphs below are from a real polis conversation and illustrate an important point. Polis engages lurkers - users who don't engage if their sole option is to write a comment.

Number of unique hits, voters, and comment authors over time


This graph shows participation rates across three segments:

  • Users who loaded the page
  • Users who wrote and submitted a comment
  • Users who clicked agree and disagree at least once

~1% of users commented. ~25% of users voted.

Votes per participant


The graph above begs a question: of those who voted, how much did they vote? The next graph gives us insight in to that. People vote a lot!

The light gray bars denote users who voted less than 7 times. These users are not included in the statistical computation or the visualization, because of a lack of data for them.
