2010 Gratitude Index

Overview

In September 2009, the site Thankfulfor.com launched, inviting people from around the world to create a personal gratitude journal that could be private or openly shared with the community. Over the past year, thousands of people have done so

- from across the US, Italy, Japan, Brazil and beyond.The vast majority kept their

posts open to the public. Many also broadcast those gratitude posts on their social networks (Twitter, Facebook) and their personal blogs.

The Thankfulfor team started seeing interesting trends in the data, and decided to create a report.Taking a sample of twenty five thousand anonymized entries, they enlisted the help of Crowdflower.com, which enabled individuals around the world to help analyze each post and essentially tag them for their topic(s). Ultimately the content fell into 42 different themes. Each journal entry was cross checked and agreed upon by at least three individuals.

The team used the data to create the 2010 Gratitude Index. On the following pages, you'll see some top level data, a more granular breakdown, and a selection of posts taken from the "public stream of thanks" within the community to illustrate the posts. All of the visual illustrations were created by DC-based creative agency JESS3.

About Thankfulfor

Thankfulfor.com is a micro-journaling site that asks journal-keepers the simple question: What are you thankful for? Users can post their answers in up to 500 characters (with a photo), and save each item to their personal "gratitude journal" for private consumption or to share in the "public stream of thanks". Social users can send each Thankfulfor post to their social networks on Facebook and Twitter, spreading the good vibes far and wide.

2010 Gratitude Index from Thankfulfor.com

With the site's most recent update, users can now post photos of what they are thankful for, follow inspiring journals from other members, create a personal profile and have more meaningful interactions across the community. Android and iPhone apps will be released soon.

Like the popular site PostSecret,Thankfulfor encourages the most personal of posts.There is something slightly voyeuristic about reading through the "public stream of thanks", yet unlike the posts at PostSecret which are often sad or even worse, the posts at Thankfulfor range from funny to uplifting, inspiring and extremely touching.

Top Level Results

Of a sampling of ~25K entries, the following overarching themes were found. Note that each post could have more than one theme as many people often list many things they are thankful for in a single post.Therefore, data should be translated as "of the sample entries, 45.19% mentioned people, 2.17% mentioned a specific place".

Things

18.63%

! Fourth down on the list are things.The majority of this category is a natural, as it is what sustains life and is a large part of most people's day to day activities: food. And drinks too. Never a day goes by without posts with detailed descriptions of fresh fruit, vegetables, gourmet meals, comforting tea, celebratory wine or desserts. But this category also includes possessions such as clothes, cars, comfy beds and couches, homes and backyards, bicycles, running shoes, boats and much more.

!

!

!

! Following things, are specific activities such as learning, going to school, taking vacation, traveling, playing sports, good times, downtime, exercise and probably the most popular - getting sleep! People are extremely thankful for a good night of sleep.

Nature !!

9.85%

! At just under 10% of all posts, is nature.While we were tempted to include pets with "family", we decided to group pets with other elements of the natural world such as wild animals, trees, flowers, beaches, oceans, lakes, the planet, stars, seasons, weather and water.

Feelings ! !

9.10%

! While feelings could have been included with "self" and "experiences", there were so many posts dedicated to love, happiness, peace and emotions, we decided to break it out into it's own category. And what a beautiful category it is. Just over 9% of all the posts express gratitude for those things.

Entertainment & Tech !!

8.28%

While most of us couldn't imagine living without technology and our entertainment, we were still happy at where it landed in the list. In eighth place is entertainment and technology, which includes all of our laptops, phones, GPS systems, Internet, specific websites, electricity, tv's, music, television shows, movies and books. Note that within this category, technology & gadgets ranked highest, books ranked lowest. Perhaps our audience is partial to their computers?

Money/Job ! !

7.52%

! While money seems to dominate much of our collective conversation, this category, which includes posts about money, jobs and work, comes in at ninth place. People are thankful for their jobs, meaningful work and money to pay their bills, buy gifts, help others and more.

Places !

2.17%

! Finally, there are some places that are just special to us. Some have names, others are harder to define, so we called this collective category “places”.While only 2% of posts included specific places, it seemed to call for its own category. Entries that expressed gratitude for places mentioned cities, countries, neighborhoods, buildings, schools, hotels, rooms, coves - you name it. If it was special enough to call out by name or describe, it deserved a place here in this group.

sono grato tutte le volte che mi siedo al mio pianoforte.

saber o que sei, e saber que tenho que aprender muito mais ainda!

por la vida

semua berkat, perlindungan dan kelancaran kerja

Pela oportunidade de conhecer minha metade da alma, Carolina.

Agradeço meu professor, por me dar a chance de ter outra chance na prova da sua diciplina e por se importar e querer me ajudar.
