David Archuleta & Social Media

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, October 7, 2014

glorious collage

Lots of unexpected activity these past couple of weeks, all things David Archuleta.  Here are some stats from social media.  I added winners Cook and McCreery, who is also attending college, for comparison.

David Archuleta Social Media Activity

David Archuleta & David Cook

Considering that Cook was the winner I think David has done more than pretty good without the AI machine.

dc next big graph

 

David Archuleta & Scotty McCreery

Scotty has a label and all the backing from the country music community who are very supportive and yet you can see that David is holding his own without much effort on his part.

All this buzz has taken me by surprise and I’m fascinated with all these numbers.  I realize it’s not a science but it’s information that the media uses for measuring popularity.

So this got me wondering as to what social media all you commenters and lurkers use in relation to David Archuleta. So, lets take a poll!  You can pick one or several.

Here are the links to the David’s social media for your convenience.

    Social Media has become my life lately lol.
    I live on Twitter, that’s a given lol.
    But in order of importance here goes:
    Twitter
    Youtube
    Instagram
    Facebook
    and just yesterday I looked at his wiki page for some reason. (oh yeah, they misspelled Mike’s name in one spot)
    Oh no, that was the TOSOD wiki page. Each album has one.
    So all of the above.
    But I don’t use those things strictly for David, tbh. I have friends on Twitter that have nothing to do with him.
    Facebook is family and friends. I’ll like his posts if they pop up, but that isn’t why I go there at all.
    Youtube is self explanatory. Instagram – I’ve never not liked a picture of his.
    Since I’ve been off work for 2 months now, I am online more than ever. Am still friends
    with ex-archies, pretend ex-archies and the real thing. ❤

    Dja,
    Thanks for the stats. It’s interesting to see the comparisons. Looks promising!

    I have to share something with you guys. I posted David’s Glorious MV on my facebook. I posted it in hopes that some people who didn’t really know who he was or had forgotten about him would give it a listen and maybe give him a chance. But I didn’t expect what just happened.

    My mom (who BTW voted for David Cook 😦 ) just called me. She said: “I’ve been ironing and playing David’s new song on repeat. I really like his voice. Can you post some more of his music?” LOL Yay, mom!! 😀 So naturally, I did! I shared a few more of his official Music Videos.

    Betsy, I love your list lol I couldn’t believe there is a wiki page for each album. If anyone is curious check it out.

    Loved this! lol

    MT, That is wonderful! I've shared with co-workers and every single one has loved it.

    I confess, I'm a social media junkie with twitter being my favorite for the quick, easy and far reaching. Though I do use all the rest 🙂

    Heh, also… he is in Utah. I think it would be pretty hard for him to go anywhere in Utah and not have someone recognize him. I have actually been surprised at how few pics have shown up.

    And.. I am hoping that the new clothes mean more than just cold weather. I am hoping that they mean: “I need to look good for performances”.

    One can hope.

    Dear DA, I notice that your hair grows just as fast as ever. Can I just say that I also am glad that your schedule is so busy that you haven’t been to the barber in the last 48 hours.

    I can’t stay away from utube! Love watching all his videos and now that I have the new Genie from Direct TV, I can watch them on my big screen!! 🙂
    I read up on his fan sites every day, hoping for a big announcement! 🙂 All the comments from here go to my emails, so I will know when any good news comes out!
    Most of FB is family and friends, but FOD FB is on there and I share anything David to keep everyone in the know. One of my old friends fell in love with his singing on FB.
    Twitter…. I have a lot of others on there too. It is fun to WWTT! 🙂
    I have Instagram, but for some reason it has disappeared on my laptop!
    I’ve been to Wiki a few times, but don’t keep up with it.

    So proud of him too! I just can’t get his “Glorious” song out of my head. It’s so universal that I can see it one day being used for graduations.

    Dja,

    Thanks for compiling the stats for us. I’m not surprised to see how successful David is without a label nor with AI backing him. I expect him to learn the business side of the music business while he’s in college. And I expect him to one day produce his own music and have his own publishing company.

    MT,

    WTG to your Mom! 🙂

    Welcome to the voice Anodrlurker! Love numbers 🙂

    And technology. There are programs that will do these calculations and pretty them up in a flash! I’m glad you’re all enjoying the stats, it can be boring for most but when simplified I thing they are a work of art. And as you can see David does darn well in the numbers game.

    Though it doesn’t reflect all the non social media users, and I know plenty, it does give us an idea of the popularity he has. I think what is most telling are the comments, some can be harsh but all in all many new names, many non religious folk loving Glorious for the inspirational message that can be understood by all.

    Bluesky, haha Thank you and all here for continuing on this journey.

    Wow, last night was like old times. David on the red carpet and everyone wanting a picture! So many incredible pictures. I see in his face that the transition is progressing looking happy and relaxed in preparation for future things to come. 🙂

    Yes!

    I think , no I know, that I have missed David’s smile more than anything. I’m talking about that full blown smile,that lights up his whole face and lets his light shine through. We all know he has the most gorgeous smile in the world.
    IMO…his smile is as healing, and as beautiful a gift ,as his amazing voice.

    Love that David was so popular at the premiere — seems like everyone wanted a photo with him, including the celebs. Glad he got to experience that again – about time he got comfy with all of that stardom because the 2015 album launch, promo and tour is going to be WOW! (I can dream and THAT is a good dream!

    Went to Meet the Mormons this morning. Large crowd for the 11 a.m. showing here in Mormonville. I enjoyed the stories. At the end of the movie David’s voice on the large theater audio system was truly amazing. Because I had seen that video so many times, I was able to see David in all the places he was supposed to be. I was looking for the icon for repeat. Why would they not have that? I was wondering how many times I could sit through the entire movie, just for the delicious ending. Still floating on the clouds from David dust.

    Abrra #80, there’s that famous, genuine ‘red carpet’ smile!

    Hubby and I just got back from seeing “meet the Mormons” at the theatre. It’s really good (yes I’m Mormon). There is no preaching in it at all. It is simply to show that we are Christians that lead ordinary lives just like other Christians. David’s voice on the big screen reduced me to a puddle. There is no way to describe what his voice is like in Dolby sound coming at you from every nook and cranny in the room. The song is short, but it is not done thru the credits, it’s an actual part of the movie. If you get a chance, go see it.

    Saw MTM this afternoon. It was wonderful. The scenery, the stories, everything about it. You’ll leave the theater with a big grin on your face, partly because of the movie and partly because of hearing David. Just not enough of the song to suit me though. Still what there was, was GLORIOUS! Be warned, bring tissues. Some of the stories are very touching, but beautiful.

Last night as I was cleaning up and hauling decorations out to my car, @davidarchie noticed the box I was carrying was a bit too heavy for me. He politely offered to help and carried the box for me all the way out to my trunk. He is truly a humble disciple of Christ and I’m grateful for the opportunity to have seen his true character in action. #MeetTheMormons

    Bluesky – I know they showed the video before the premier in Sandy UT, but when I saw it at Tinseltown in Louisville, KY, they didn’t. I was hoping they would. Also, the version in the movie is shortened and you don’t get to hear the bridge where his voice really soars. I was a little disappointed, but happy to hear him anyway. You will definitely enjoy the movie though. The stories are so inspirational and one in particular touched my heart. The one with the Missionary in it. I could just see David’s mother as she was helping him prepare for his mission. Very touching. But, yes, take plenty of tissues. My eyes started “leaking” as soon as the movie came on, and leaked throughout the rest of the movie, sometimes more that others, but it was more because my heart was being touched than from being sad. It will definitely touch your heart in a good way.

    Lynnella, it seems we will always be a “a little disappointed” until we see David full screen, full time. Haha.

    Tawna & Bluesky, it’s just not Sunday without solving Abrra’s David puzzle. David’s smile is always the reward. Cannot leave those crazy pieces disassembled with that reward in mind. How many smiles do you suppose David has given in his lifetime? And the best is yet to come.

    I thought we already had a perfect “Happy Birthday” song from David, but now he has outdone himself. Again

    Dayzee, wouldn’t it be nice to see him full screen someday AND singing in a movie. Maybe the next movie the LDS Church makes will have him in it. We can always hope. From the reaction to his video and free download for Glorious, that might give them an indication of what a jewel they have there. He should be out front in anything they do. He’s the perfect representative for them. His character is above reproach, he’s humble, and so talented and dedicated to his church. What more could they want.
