`November, 2010
 
2010 Gratitude Index
Overview
In September 2009, the site Thankfulfor.com launched, inviting people from aroundthe world to create a personal gratitude journal that could be private or openlyshared with the community. Over the past year, thousands of people have done so- from across the US, Italy, Japan, Brazil and beyond. The vast majority kept theirposts open to the public. Many also broadcast those gratitude posts on their socialnetworks (Twitter, Facebook) and their personal blogs.The Thankfulfor team started seeing interesting trends in the data, and decided tocreate a report. Taking a sample of twenty five thousand anonymized entries, theyenlisted the help of Crowdflower.com, which enabled individuals around the worldto help analyze each post and essentially tag them for their topic(s). Ultimately thecontent fell into 42 different themes. Each journal entry was cross checked andagreed upon by at least three individuals.The team used the data to create the 2010 Gratitude Index. On the followingpages, you'll see some top level data, a more granular breakdown, and a selectionof posts taken from the "public stream of thanks" within the community toillustrate the posts. All of the visual

With the site's most recent update, users can now post photos of what they arethankful for, follow inspiring journals from other members, create a personalprofile and have more meaningful interactions across the community. Android andiPhone apps will be released soon.Like the popular site PostSecret, Thankfulfor encourages the most personal of posts. There is something slightly voyeuristic about reading through the "publicstream of thanks", yet unlike the posts at PostSecret which are often sad or evenworse, the posts at Thankfulfor range from funny to uplifting, inspiring andextremely touching.
