How We're Feeling

The stats for the first two weeks of gottaFeeling are informative. Here's the data:

75% of users prefer English and 3.5% prefer Spanish. Mondays and Tuesdays garner the most sessions - meaning people use the app most on those days. 64% of users are in the U.S. and 18% are in Europe.

It's anecdotal, but I've learned:

  • Many users classify feelings as positive or negative - as opposed to just are
  • There is confusion about what is a feeling - as opposed to a thought (For a good explanation see the FAQs; linked to at the bottom of the website.)
  • Young women are uncomfortable sharing their "negative" emotions on Facebook

Which, of course, has me wondering - how can you know your social network to be supportive if in fact you never give them the chance to support you?
