Everyday we have less and less time but we're expected to do more and more. Even the smallest of tasks can be the last straw when bundled together with other small tasks!
Over the past few weeks we've been trying out different ways to try and help accomplish one small task faster: Who are the people that engage with your content the most?
So I'm pleased to announce that we've launched the Top Engagers module contained within the graphs.
You don't have to do anything extra to see who your Google+ Top Engagers are, they're just simply ... there.
How to find your Top Engagers on Google+ using NOD3x
Go to 'My Graphs' link within the top horizontal navigation bar and select Google+ Activities from the drop down menu (NOTE: you'll need to sign-in with your Google+ account to access)
Then select Load My Activities
NOD3x will now load your last 100 Google+ posts and collate all the engagement results, e.g. who:
After your Google+ activity graph loads
As I mentioned earlier, you don't need to do anything else to see who your G+ Top Engagers are, but you can change the settings on the graph itself to better visualise which posts received the most engagement.
To highlight which posts where more engaging do the following steps under the Layout Settings:
- Change Graph Order to in-degree
- Increase Max Node Size to 15
- Decrease Min Node Size to 1
- Click Apply
The above steps make the size of the nodes (the blue dots that represent each of posts) reflect the amount of engagement they received.
Now the time saver - scroll to the bottom of the site, on the right hand side. You'll see that we've added additional text links to the People in graph section, namely:
Each link will display, in order, the top 10 people who comment, reshare and +1 your content on Google+
The Posts link displays the posts that received the most engagement
Interactive Graphs and Lists
Each of the NOD3x visualisations, graphs and lists, are interactive. When you mouse over a profile image within the lists two things happen:
- The node that represents that engagement or post highlights in red in the graph
- The Google+ hovercard, that +Stephan Hovnanian has written about, is displayed for that particular person and you can add, remove or change the circle you have them in directly from within NOD3x
In addition, we've added an additional interactive graph that shows how many points of engagement your total daily posts on Google+ receive. Again when you hove over each of the respective segments (Blue = your posts, Green = re-shares, Purple = comments and Orange = +1s) they show them within the graph main screen.
As always, we welcome feedback so please let us know what you think of this new update in the comments below.
