What is Ripples?
When viewing a ripple, the original poster will display at the centre of a circle. When a user reshares that, another circle will be created for them with an arrow to show the connection to the original source. When other people reshare the post via a secondary post, the circle will expand to represent the resharing sequence. The larger the circle, the more reshares coming from that share. You'll see dozens, and sometimes hundreds of circles on the graph of highly engaging posts, all connected to the original poster.
Still a little confused? It's easier to understand when you look at an example for yourself:
|Ripples from our extremely popular Make The Switch Announcement post|
Click on a name on the graph to zoom to their bubble, hover over a name to view a preview of their post and statistics from their reshare. You can also add people to your circles straight from here too.
|Hover your cursor over a profile or page to view individual statistics and more|
Tools and StatisticsApart from being able to see your data spread visually across the page, you can find more detailed information around the confines of the graph.
Look to the right, and you'll see a list of people who have reshared the post, and what content they've added to it. Drag your cursor around the ripple to view more post previews. Underneath the graph, you'll see other data scopes and tools.
