One thought I have had of late is that it would be interesting to see a breakdown of what users are on the platform for.

The platform is more popular than ever and the number of users is expanding hugely, but I wonder if it is a higher percentage of writers, looking to develop their audience and make some money, rather than people looking to read?

That leaves a lot of us writing (of course we are reading / clapping each others stuff) but means there is a smaller proportion of audience to actually capture on the platform? Could explain the fewer views too. Too many stories /writers for the audience available?
