Troy Posted December 27, 2022 Report Share Posted December 27, 2022 The 90-9-1 Rule for Participation Inequality in Social Media and Online Communities "Summary: In most online communities, 90% of users are lurkers who never contribute, 9% of users contribute a little, and 1% of users account for almost all the action. By Jakob Nielsen on October 8, 2006" Another interesting comment: "Signal-to-noise ratio. Discussion groups drown in flames and low-quality postings, making it hard to identify the gems. Many users stop reading comments because they don't have time to wade through the swamp of postings from people with little to say." This speaks to the need for moderation which would reduce the Signal-to-noise ratio, but increase the perception bias and furthure reduce participation. While this is old data it holds true based on my experience. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
