a lot of people i know get discouraged when they see others getting consistently more likes than they do.
what a lot of folks don’t realize, i think, is the importance of ratios. This is the number of likes divided by the number of friends and followers, a simple way to quantify the devotion of your fan base.
For example, an average “celebrity” with, say, 8k followers, will often pull between 100-200 likes per post, a paltry ratio of 1.25-2.5%. This doesn’t even take into a...ccount the number of bots who like the post. A post from someone who has 400 followers that gets 20 likes enjoys an impressive 5%, double that of a “more popular” post.
Next time you see a post with a lot of likes, ask yourself, “can they pull a 5% on the regular?”
i think not.
