The conversation on the main social networks began on the same day the tool was launched, November 30. On that day, a peak of 81,414 tweets was recorded. It is on Twitter where the largest number of publications about ChatGPT has been detected. Although the trends are similar in the different social networks, the evolution of the impact in each of them has been very different.
In the case of Facebook and Instagram, the impact is more notable in the number of interactions with the publications, but not in the number of publications made.
As of June 1st, a total of 17,064,649 tweets have been published since November 30th. On Facebook, 408,577 Facebook posts have been published, which has led to 48,312,441 interactions. On Instagram, 56,330 posts have been published, leading to 101,174,488 interactions.
The numbers are impressive, indicating the enormous conversation and buzz generated around ChatGPT and the impact on the global conversation.
In the following dataviz you can interact with the data, being able to select the trend line of each social network (or all at once, in which case we recommend you switch to a logarithmic scale for comparison).
This data will be updated in the coming days, and other possible sources of information will be included. Stay tuned!
