LJ is dead stats 2016!!

So, as per usual, I am taking inventory of my friends list and seeing who posted in 2016. This will be counted as an "Active" journal, even if they only posted once or twice this year.

So regarding LJs on my friends list that have posted in 2016:

I have 305 friends total

27 people posted this year
278 people did not

so 91% of my friends list is inactive.

It was actually a little less than predicted, surprisingly. Last year I thought it would be 92%. I still think most of the people who are here are here to stay. My prediction is next year will be 93% unless I make some more friends.

It was surprising to see some people had updated but I couldn't see it. I can only assume they posted privately. LJ is a good medium for that, I suppose. But it mostly made me wish those people would have posted publicly [or friends only].

That said, I remember an old rant journal had said I had updated in 2015 when I most certainly had not. So maybe its glitched and the number is even more bleak that I know. Who knows!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
And, for those who like the past:

2015:
306 friends total

32 posted in the last year
274 did not

or, 90% of my friends list is inactive.
---------------------
2014:

304 friends total

38 posted in the last year
266 did not

or, 87% of my friends list is inactive.
---------------------
2013:

312 friends

68 had updated in the last year
244 had abandoned their lj

or 78% of my friends page was dead.
---------------------
2012:

316 friends

93 had updated in the last year
223 had abandoned their lj

or 70% of my friends page was dead.
--------------------
2011:

328 friends

129 had updated in the last year
199 had abandoned their lj

or 61% of my friends page was dead.

Enjoy!
