It seems that Donald Trump no longer shows its quality of influence on internet, as in old timeswell your new platform not going well.
A four months what it was exiled of the main social networks, Trump seems to have problems with ‘From the Desk of Donald J. Trump’, essentially a blog for their reflections.
The data suggests that things are not going well within a week of its launch, reports NBC News.
According to an analysis of the specialized firm BuzzSumoThe former president’s blog has attracted a considerably smaller audience than his once powerful Twitter and Facebook accounts.
What’s going on?
According to the data, users cannot comment on or interact with actual posts beyond sharing them with other platforms, an action that few do.
Trump’s new blog has attracted just over 212,000 interactions, defined as backlinks and social interactions, including likes, shares, and comments, received on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Reddit.
Before the veto, a single message from Trump used to receive thousands of likes and was retweeted hundreds of thousands of times.
Blog posts come in the form of statements that are also sent to supporters via email.
In multiple daily interventions, Trump has targeted his political enemies and backed loyal supporters, continued to push false claims and conspiracy theories, and weighed in on the news of the day.
Due to the suspension of his traditional networks, Trump no longer has the ability to communicate with millions of people: 88 million followers on Twitter, 32 million on Facebook and 24 million on Instagram.
A CNBC analysis of Trump’s tweets in January found that the messages I liked the most spread misinformation.
But the conspiracy theories and insults that the former president has spread through his blog do not seem to move as in the time of his presidency.
The most popular shares of Trump’s new content came from conservative media and activists.
The main blog post, in which Trump criticized Facebook’s Oversight Board’s decision to uphold its ban, garnered just 16,000 interactions.
Trump’s blog posts racked up just a few thousand shares on average, according to an image text search using CrowdTangle, Facebook’s social media analytics tool.
The most recent blow came last week when Twitter terminated an account with more than 2,100 followers who mainly shared Trump’s blog posts.
We will take enforcement action on accounts whose apparent intent is to replace or promote content affiliated with a suspended account, “said a Twitter spokesperson.
Trump was temporarily or permanently banned from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube following what social media companies said was his glorification of the rioters on Capitol Hill on January 6.
Trump’s ban on Twitter is permanent, and his temporary suspension from YouTube will be lifted when the company decides that the threat of violence is no longer imminent.
On Facebook, his suspension is currently ‘indefinite’ for the next six months, as ordered by the Oversight Board last week.
The low engagement figures for Trump’s blog seem to suggest that the practice of de-platformsing a user, or isolating a user from their followers and thus cutting off common follower networks, is widely effective and can be used to reduce hate speech and glorification of violence on major platforms.
It also apparently restricts a public figure’s ability to attract a similar audience on an alternative platform.
In the case of Trump’s new platform, it is technologically so primitive that his followers cannot even migrate, ”said Jeremy Blackburn, assistant professor of computer science at Binghamton University in New York.
Yet Trump’s team is not giving up on getting their messages out in front of a large and engaged audience.
