This supported Arthur Koestler who, having grown up in the shadow of Buckingham Palace in twentieth-century London, could never have imagined that today in a jungle of data, statistics and insights, the numbers on social channels are becoming so important for bring out artists and give visibility to what they want to communicate.
Vine, the famous mobile application owned by Twitter that allows users to create and share short videos that are repeated automatically, has launched today Loop Counts, the first data natural platform analytics: the application will then provide the number in real time of how many times the video was displayed, adding up all the loops that were actually launched.
An interesting statistic that succeeds finally measuring a function that characterizes and differentiates Vine from other competitors: the looping of the videos. The other functions are in fact adaptations of the interactions already present on other social media, such as the Likes and re-Vine taken from the Fav and Twitter Retweets, while the video loop was one of the main reasons for the success and popularity of the application between artists and creatives from around the world.
