Zootopia's Reign of Tumblr!

Tumblr is in interesting website.  I'm sure a lot of you have your own opinions on it, but there's no denying that it's a place for fandoms of all sorts.  To that end, in late 2014/early 2015, Tumblr began posting Fandometrics, which tracks the activity of different fandoms on the platform in various categories.  From games to celebrities, movies and TV, they list whatever had the top 20 most active fandoms every week.

As you can imagine, Zootopia has been on that list for a while, but it wasn't until I went back through and plugged the data into a spreadsheet that I learned just how MASSIVELY successful the Zootopia fandom has been on Tumblr.  So brace yourselves, because I'm pretty sure we set some records.

This last week, Zootopia wasn't on the list.  My best guess is that other lesser-known movie fans were super excited after previews at the San Diego Comic Con.  So now we have some definitive stats:

Zootopia has been in the top 20 most active fandoms since the first week of January, 2016!  That's 80 WEEKS.  Of that time, it spent 10 weeks in the #1 spot (likely would have been much more if it weren't for Captain America: Civil War which I don't think should count since it's just one part of a massive franchise but oh well).  Half of that time was in the Top 5, and a whopping 92% of that time, we were in the top 10!

I think some celebrations are in order!  No other single movie has been on this list for as long as Zootopia was, and I'm willing to bet that next week it'll be right back up in the top 20.  If you are interested in seeing the full spreadsheet tracking Zootopia's reign, you can find that right here.

This fandom continues to be absolutely amazing, and I keep looking forward to seeing what surprises it will bring us next!  Remember, as always...

Try Everything!

  2. Some websites are so interesting because they give the specific information which is only available for these websites. Zootopia is the interesting site which gives australian-writings services with the complete detail about the unique information. It is the good source of the information.

  3. This past week, I showed my best friend my Google history... around 50 to 60 different tabs of Zootopia fanfictions. He told me I have an addiction to Zootopia and said right back "This 'Addiction' is too sweet to give up. And honestly, I don't see why you aren't apart of this 'addiction "... he and I aren't talk but I really couldn't care less.

    1. That's sad, but I understand 100%. That happened to me when I first started ZNN, actually. I think I can safely say I proved them wrong about too much zootopia being a bad thing..
