Fandometrics Compiles Ranking For K-Pop Groups With Most Influence On Tumblr

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:

  1. BTS
  2. EXO
  3. GOT7
  4. SEVENTEEN
  5. SHINee
  6. VIXX
