Analyzing Hacker News Posts For User Engagement


I just finished up my Hacker News Post project and was wondering if I can get some feedback on it?

I tried to spend more time explaining and adding comments on this project to increase readability and ‘style’ as it was called in the guide.

Here is my project:

Thank you for the feedback!


Great work @burnsdillion! :clap:

Another idea for further analysis would be to find the top ten authors who receive the most comments and look into what kind of posts do they post. That way you could possibly find the following information:

  • How do the top authors write their titles?
  • What type of posts are the top authors posting?
  • What is the format of the post that the top authors using? Are they the same? Are they different?

You can use this new information to increase the value of your own posts.

I would highly encourage you to not just end it with questions, instead, try to find answers to these questions as much as you can. After all, the very purpose of data science is to pull out interesting insights from the data.
