While I continue to update http://dayofdiabetes.tumblr.com with new entries from last week, I invite you to hop on over to Symplur to read a guest post I wrote about the social metrics to come out of last Thursday. They provided me with some very cool graphics, like the one below, and some insightful numbers that helped prop up some of my analysis of what happened.
My hope is that of those 2.5 million impressions, at least one of them helped someone new find the motivation to improve their own diabetes management. I hope that at least one of those impressions turned a Twitter lurker, to a thought-leader within the diabetes community. I hope that at least one of those impressions helped someone with a loved one living with diabetes understand what we go through on a daily basis a little bit better.
Big thanks to Tom Lee at Symplur for working with me on this one.
