With 2016 almost coming to an end, Tumblr has compiled their own ranking of K-pop groups!
In order to create a scientific ranking, Tumblr’s Fandometrics implemented a specific criteria that contains four factors:
- How many posts were created that contain the tag
- How many times that tag was searched for
- How many times a post using that tag was reblogged
- How many times a post using that tag was liked
Fandometric’s content team also revealed that they “weight and normalize the number of actions to create a more accurate picture of each fandom’s influence across Tumblr.” Based on these aspects, Tumblr put together a list of K-pop groups for 2016.
Here’s a ranking of the K-pop groups with the most influence on Tumblr:
- MONSTA X
- Girls’ Generation
- Red Velvet
- Block B
The ranking on Tumblr also reveals which groups went up and which groups went down, as well as which groups made it to the list for the first time.
What do you think of their results?
