In this paper we use a Deep Neural Network (DNN) trained on data collected from the visual media-sharing social platform Instagram account of a popular Indian lifestyle magazine to predict the popularity of future posts. This predicted popularity of the post can be used to decide advertising rates and measure performance metrics important for publishing strategy decisions. The DNN primarily uses growth rate in subscriber base, tags associated with the post, time of day when the post was made… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Popularity Prediction of Instagram Posts
TLDR
This work addresses the challenge of predicting the popularity of a future post on Instagram by defining the problem as a classification task and by proposing an original approach based on Gradient Boosting and feature engineering, which led to promising experimental results. Expand
Instagram post popularity trend analysis and prediction using hashtag, image assessment, and user history features
TLDR
This research compared several regression techniques to predict the Engagement Rate (ER) of posts using a global dataset and found that image quality, posting time, and type of image highly impact ER. Expand
Overview of Present Methods to Predict Social Media Metrics of a Post
Social Media is an ever-growing tool which will only continue to grow as time goes by. As the commercial applications of social media increase exponentially, interest in using AI techniques toExpand
Popularity Prediction of Posts in Social Networks Based on User, Post and Image Features
TLDR
Generic popularity prediction models are built that can make predictions for all types of posts from any users which is different from existing works and indicates that combining user and post features with statistical features and image object detection related features yields good performance on popularity prediction. Expand
Popularity prediction of images and videos on Instagram
TLDR
This study is the first exploring of Iranian Instagram users for popularity prediction and uses some image/video context features to predict the number of likes a post obtains as a meaning of popularity through some regression and classification methods. Expand
EmojiGAN: learning emojis distributions with a generative model
TLDR
This paper proposes a image-to-emoji architecture, which is trained on data from social networks and can be used to score a given picture using ideograms and shows empirical results of the algorithm on data obtained from the most influential Instagram accounts. Expand
A picture is worth a thousand words : investigating the value of Instagram posts and Twitter posts in predicting movie box office revenues.
Purpose: Using Instagram and Twitter data for volume- and sentiment-related predictor variables, the purpose of this paper is to examine the predictive value of Instagram predictor variables comparedExpand
Prediction of the propagation effect of emergencies microblog
TLDR
A method of predicting the propagation effect toward entries of main emergencies released by official media is proposed which has rarely been studied and the effectiveness of the algorithm compared with most existing models is demonstrated. Expand
Tensor Data Imputation by PARAFAC with Updated Chaotic Biases by Adam Optimizer
TLDR
The high dimensional data imputation problem as a higher-order tensor decomposition is presented, with the regularized and biased PARAFAC decomposition proposed to generate the missing data entries. Expand
Tracking e-cigarette warning label compliance on Instagram with deep learning
TLDR
The proportion of the U.S. high school students who report using e-cigarettes declined in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic, but despite this recent decline, the use of youth-appealing, low-priced disposable e-cigarette devices increased approximately 1,000% during 2019 2020. Expand

DeepSentiBank: Visual Sentiment Concept Classification with Deep Convolutional Neural Networks
TLDR
Performance evaluation shows the newly trained deep CNNs model SentiBank 2.0 (or called DeepSentiBank) is significantly improved in both annotation accuracy and retrieval performance, compared to its predecessors which mainly use binary SVM classification models. Expand
Faces engage us: photos with faces attract more likes and comments on Instagram
TLDR
The first results on how photos with human faces relate to engagement on large scale image sharing communities are presented, finding that the number of faces, their age and gender do not have an effect. Expand
A Fast Learning Algorithm for Deep Belief Nets
TLDR
A fast, greedy algorithm is derived that can learn deep, directed belief networks one layer at a time, provided the top two layers form an undirected associative memory. Expand
Acoustic Modeling Using Deep Belief Networks
TLDR
It is shown that better phone recognition on the TIMIT dataset can be achieved by replacing Gaussian mixture models by deep neural networks that contain many layers of features and a very large number of parameters. Expand
Learning Deep Features for Scene Recognition using Places Database
TLDR
A new scene-centric database called Places with over 7 million labeled pictures of scenes is introduced with new methods to compare the density and diversity of image datasets and it is shown that Places is as dense as other scene datasets and has more diversity. Expand
Recognizing Image Style
TLDR
An approach to predicting style of images, and a thorough evaluation of different image features for these tasks, find that features learned in a multi-layer network generally perform best -- even when trained with object class (not style) labels. Expand
Understanding the difficulty of training deep feedforward neural networks
TLDR
The objective here is to understand better why standard gradient descent from random initialization is doing so poorly with deep neural networks, to better understand these recent relative successes and help design better algorithms in the future. Expand
