>mfw I have no face

29. 11. 2012 — k47 (CC by) (♪)

You (as so­phis­ti­ca­ted gentle­man who browse 4chan erry­day) may wonder: how many po­sters actu­ally post image of their face with ri­ve­ting gre­en­text story ending with >mfw and how many of them have no face. This ques­tion is com­ple­tely use­less and serves no pur­pose to hu­ma­nity, but no­ne­the­less it's mar­gi­nally in­te­res­ting and as such should be an­swered by the power of science.

And guess what? I have mas­sive 4chan ar­chive and now I have also the answer.


Yes, this gra­phi­cal clus­ter­fuck is a result of my work. It's plot of ratio of posts con­ta­i­ning >mfw to posts with image.

As you can see, ma­xi­mal ratio is around 90% (mainly „gra­phi­cal“ boards: /co/, /vg/, /mlp/, /a/). Most boards are be­tween 70% and 90%. /sci/ and /g/ are fluctua­ting around 65%. /r9k/ is bellow 50% (Do you even trying, robots?) /q/ is so low be­cause I have not enough data to com­pute proper ratio. (This da­ta­set ends on 2012-08-09, few days after /q/'s in­cep­tion. I have the rest of data in huge pile of scra­ped html files and JSONs from 4chan API, that waits for par­sing and pro­ces­sing.)

Chart is hea­vily smo­o­thed (values are ave­raged with pre­vi­ous and next days), otherwise it would look even worse. Some boards are mis­sing. It's be­cause they are too slow and there is not enough data to com­pute accu­rate has face ratio.


And there is table of ave­rage has face ratio di­vi­ded by board:
