I was wondering how Hive and Steem have been performing since the hardfork, not from the perspective of technical measures but from social activity measures. One thing I could derive is a pattern about trending posts.
I compared two scrolls of trending posts. Yes, it's very subjective to monitor's resolution, like two "spoons" of sugar. Please excuse my rough analysis but hopefully you have some impressions.
First page of Hive
Top three posts are written by @blocktrades announcing about services for Hive. The next post is about a service too, by @openseed, and followed by two insightful posts by community members (@theycallmedan and @tarazkp). All have tens of comments.
Then, Steemit's top trending page
All of them are old, at least 5 days ago, while first two are Steemit's posts. I think it's nor a fair comparison, so I looked at the second trending page of Steemit in order to match to Hive's first page.
A notable difference is amounts of comment. Except one post, others have very few comments, even zero.
Now look at Hive's second trending page.
They have good numbers of comments, except one post having a single comment.
But Steemit's second trending seem different.
Out of six posts, three have zero comment. And two posts are announcements from OCBD and Steemauto.
I can conclude that a majority of social activities migrated from Steemit to Hive. For me, the recent atmosphepre reminds early stage of Steemit.
But we should not celebrate now. What we need is not taking similar mistakes of Steemit. We have many to fix and improve. Hopefully, my old post regarding engagement-based reputation can contribute Hive's future.
