Which Users Are the Most Active?

The insights provided under Which Users Are the Most Active are tracked automatically. The more you know about your users, the better equipped you will be to make smart choices about how to create more meaningful and engaging experiences. MIKROS provides you with many pieces of information to help you understand the behavior and interests of your users as they interact with your product. Standard metrics include the number of users, the classification of users, and user sessions.

Whatever activities a user performs in the time of a product is counted as a single session. If the same user returns to your app a few days later, that becomes another session. It is possible that a user may check your app several different times in a week, which amounts to several sessions. A session can expire; hence, a single user can have multiple sessions on the same day, different days, weeks, or months. Sessions are actions taken within a particular time interval. They give you insights into how well your product is performing.

User Details

Honoring user privacy is valuable to us. We do this in a number of ways, one being anonymizing the identity of all users. MIKROS does not provide, nor will you be able to figure out any identifiable information about your users. This is purposeful to protect user privacy, but also added because those sorts of specifics are not necessary from a data analysis perspective. All that is important are the attributes of your users, and we help you with that. The attributes that we provide you range from characteristics, interests, behaviors, habits and more.

Sessions may or may not be a full recording of time spent in your app, because MIKROS only counts sessions if the user has performed meaningful actions in your product.
