1-99 rule

1-99 rule1% Heavy Contributors

al Cigale dials

(OT) {g1 IVI Ce]5


After reading the 80/20 Rule article聽(Preston 馃悵 Vander Ven), this came to my mind... what is happening to all social media networks?.聽

The use of social media to support marketing has increased in recent times.聽 How can we use this to develop our business?

Is the 80/20 rule applicable聽to social networks, forums and other platforms? Is the聽90-9-1 Rule the new Pareto Principle聽for the web and other online environments?

In Internet culture, the 1-99 rule - the 1% rule聽- is a rule of thumb pertaining to participation in an internet community, stating that only 1% of the users of a website actively create new content, while the other 99% of the participants only lurk. This happens to all social media platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn or聽beBee.

Variants include the 1-9-90 rule (sometimes 90鈥9鈥1 principle or the 89:10:1 ratio),聽which states that in a collaborative platform such as beBee聽, 90% of the participants of a community only view content, 9% of the participants edit content, and 1% of the participants actively create new content. This is totally true.

A point of view

The 90-9-1 rule is:

  • 90% of users are lurkers or quiet participants (they read or observe, but they don鈥檛 contribute)
  • 9%聽of users contribute from time to time, but other priorities dominate their time (partially engaged)
  • 1% of users participate a lot and account for most contributions (they are fully engaged): it can seem as if they don鈥檛 have lives because they often post just minutes after whatever event they鈥檙e commenting on occurs. They are intense contributors of content. They are "the honey on beBee". This is a tribute to all of them. Many thanks.

    beBee聽wouldn't exist without your contributions.

The terms "lurk"聽 or "lurking"聽or聽"lurkers", in reference to online activity, are used to refer to online observation without engaging others in the community.聽

An optimistic point of view

Rather than seeing the lack of active contribution as a problem, it is far more helpful to view participation behaviour as a reflection of the variety of skills and strengths of the participants.

Instead of seeing the 90% as 鈥淟urkers鈥, I prefer to view them as a type of participant. A participant who is primarily an audience that uses and applies the content presented.

The 90-9-1 rule is:

  • 1% are creators (honey producers)
  • 9% are editors or critics (producers and commenters)
  • 90% are the audience (but like to believe they can contribute if they chose to)

@Ken Boddie I must admit that I like your classification better :-)

Some are born with a silver tongue;

Some with a potty mouth; 

Some achieve word smithing skills by various degrees of application; 

Some will forever fail to express their feelings and emotions in print; and 

Some, the vast silent majority, are happy little campers, content to watch the world go by with neither a care nor a comment.  

My point is certainly strong not to express myself in words, let alone in writing. In Spanish I'm not very good or limited, I've always been interested in science and technology, not in reading, although I love everything "technical". I am passionate about the world, the stars, and think about the typical things: where we come from, where we are going, why we exist, etc.  I find it difficult to express myself in English, especially spoken English, I admit that I find it difficult because I don't have the opportunity to practise it every day in Spain. When I read I understand everything or almost everything, let's say. The good thing is that I understand myself to do business, which is enough for me, but I would like to know it much better.

I can well believe, Javier, that at keast 90% or more of SM users are entirely passive and neither create posts, nor share the work of others, nor comment on the posts of others. But I suggest that the breakdown of the balance of users, whether it be 10% or less, is more complex and varied than your formula suggests. It鈥檚 true that a very small percentage actually produce posts completely written in their own words while formulating concepts and ideas that appear fresh, but here it could be argued that very few written works are original and most are at least sparked by, or even conceptually borrowed from, other writings and various life experiences, whether intentionally or subliminally. Some writers, like myself, however, not only spend time creating posts for others to read, but spend many hours of their presence on SM actually responding to the posts of others with creative comments and, in some cases, thoughtfully prepared or even poetic profferings to the altars of other authors, in an attempt to encourage other writers to keep writing. Then there are the self obsessed writers who rarely, if ever, appear to read the posts of others and who certainly don鈥檛 comment on other writers鈥 works, and who, furthemore, often fail to respond to, or apparently ignore, the comments of others on their own posts. Then, also within that balance of 10% or less, are the pseudo creator sharers who share the posts of others, hoping to spark interactive comments, but rarly if ever write their own posts. Then, finally in thus 10% or so, there are the participating social readers, who never publish and rarely share the works of others, but are happy to comment and engage entirely in the posts of others. 

I postulate the above without judgement or criticism, as it takes all sorts to form a successful SM platform, and we all have different capabilities and aptitudes for either digesting or formulating the written word.

@Javier 馃悵 CR  Yeah that sounds about right. I remember doing a whole series of articles explaining to people how to get better at blogging on sites like BeBee. Maybe I should repost it. I think that most of the people who are in the 1% are professional writers like myself and Renee and Franci etc. I would love to see piece from the 90%.

You know, if you take a gander at @Jim Murray's comment - not everybody is a writer, he made a good point. With that said, other things can be contributed such as art, music, poetry, quotes, photography, etc. One of my favorites to follow on LinkedIn is an artist. I avoid reading the same political garbage day after day, but I love to enjoy the lovely art by Monique Laville. I'm not touting LI, by any means, but my point is what I just mentioned. Contributions to beBee can be other than long-form posts. 馃槈

True and great analysis, the challenge is to identify this 1 % and engage with them on a regular basis, offering them an environment where they can flourish. Because social media without genuine content representing the diversity is a dead ghost town without a hurricane on her way.

Quite interesting and potential improvement Javier \ud83d\udc1d beBee. I also hope that statistics on shared buzzed on LinkedIn may be transferred to beBee. I noticed that some of my published buzzes on beBee and then shared on LI drew more than 2000 views, but the number of vies and comments as well was not shown on the data on beBee. This leads to the distortion of data because in reality the total numbers are less than reality.

Milos Djukic These are some new improvements we are developing on beBee: 1.- Better Integration with LinkedIn, Google and Facebook New registrations and logins will be able to use LinkedIn, Google and Facebook accounts. 2.- Improvements on Hives Hives are the core of beBee, so Hives need to be empowered. A lot of professionals (engineers, executives, entrepreneurs, economists, etc) are demanding it from us so we are going to develop this area. Users will be able to create real conversations through Quick Buzz, and share through hives, short texts, links or wherever they like. The conversations will not mix with the long content and all content will be shared in the hives so you will not miss a thing! Hive Owners will have new features like importing their contacts and managing their hives to exclude or include content. Hives will be enriched with presentations, whitepapers and much more. Quick Buzz = Conversations through the hives. Produce Honey = long content

I will repeat here the same brief overview of both LinkedIn and BeBee problems with engagement which I already posted within the beBee post titled: "Has the Bee Lost Its Buzz?". LinkedIn: 1. Limited exposure due to the activities of manipulative ATC notification algorithm. 2. Death of LI Groups. 3. Death of LI publishing platform for all non-privileged LI users and writers. 4. Selective promotion of content and writing by Inflencers, selected group of writers - Top Voices and sponsors only. 5. Influencer marketing and sponsors only concept. beBee: 1. No professional Groups. 2. No promotion of short-form posts. 3. Undefined marketing concept and slow development of the platform. 4. Promotion of long-form content only. 5. Poor support for different professionals. General comment about social media: Most of the people are busy with their "personal brand" outside of social media. Social media should only be an addition to the real life. The essence is in balance. The content marketing games are pretty unfair games now in social media. When manipulations and content repackaging dominate in the operation of social media ("magic of algorithms"), no wonders should be expected in the business of creating personal brands. Some serious writers don't feel safe anymore to share their intellectual capital on social media. And that was probably the world's most powerful personal and corporate brand (intellectual capital), which is now discontinued and minimized by "content marketing" created by social media owners through different forms of marketing approaches (sponsorship, influencer marketing, blockchain technology, affiliate marketing, favoring of selected content and writers, so called influencers...) directed towards profit only.

"I must say however that BeBee is by far the most interactive social media site I'm involved with. The active group is a ray of sunshine in my day." I agree with this Jerry Fletcher. However a lot of people I interact with now on beBee I came across with from Linked In so there was an established group of co-operative like minded contributors.

This is particularly relevant for Twitter depending also on popularity of content. I posted the same updates of #ThaiCaveRescue on beBee, Linked In, Facebook & Twitter.

I appreciate the adjective that changes the lurking concept to participant. I would say though that Social Media is a very indirect way of reaching your customer. Most you engage with either as contributor or participant is a future, potential customer. Should a participant require or need a service or product they can recall where on social media they read and participated. If i were to venture a guess, i would state that social media is a 5-8 year proposition from start to actually realizing any sustainable customer growth. I mean this in the entrepreneurial sense. Certainly you can pay thousands to overcome your learning curve and begin toe recieve customers much faster. But by paying you dont get to hone your entrepreneurial senses as you grow with the customers you are planting seeds within. Good thoughts.

#37 I am glad that my comment provoked such a response. :) First, I think the same about learning through writing. The only difference between you and me is, I think, in the amount of time each of us can devote to writing and posting. In this phase of my life, I learn mostly through reading when it comes to topics that intrigued me on social media. The most I can do now is to post once in several months and try to comment as much as possible. The Javier's post intrigued me to explore more about the 90-9-1 Rule of participation inequality of social media users. I searched for additional information about real numbers. Putting aside the fractal and iterative nature of the Pareto distribution, I found some data that documented inequality on the web. The number of active contributors is far less than 1% and go with a 99.8鈥0.2鈥0.003 rule on some social websites. With blogs, the rule is like 95-5-0.1 or lower. I wonder if there is a similar study on beBee about its daily active contributors. There always be the silent majority of people who read or observe but don't contribute. One of the ways to attract those users, as I see it, is let them be contributors by sharing short buzzes in the hives as were before and promised. Not everyone is comfortable with writing a blog on the Producer platform.

I wonder if you would ever Javier \ud83d\udc1d beBee would ask me again to give my opinion having bombarded you with comments. In my previous comment I predicted that nighttime views and comments would be scarce. This is what happened as the number of views increased only one hundred in seven hours. The comments mainly increased because of my many comments. Is this the "summertime effect"?

One last point is the seasonality of engagement. By this I mean the time and day you publish will affect the engagement numbers. It is 2 a.m. in Jordan right now (time to sleep) and this buzz has so far 1.1 views after 13 hours. I noticed lately that the night hours are inert. I don't expect this number to increase that much when I wake up. What happens that some author bees publish very frequently and almost daily or three times in a week. This means that some of the buzzes will not have the opportunity to enjoy days in which there are readers. Soon these get eclipsed by a newer buzz and this brings the engagement number down. Good night everybody.

I am sorry to keep commenting, but the topic interests me. There is one form of active engagements that isn't counted. It is sharing buzzes on other social platforms. One example there are few of my buzzes that were shared on LinkedIn and then again shared in group discussions with tweets referring to them One other distortion of statistic data is what I noticed with sharing. One of my buzzes, which I published originally on beBee and then shared almost same time on LI received more views on LI than on beBee. This happened only once, but it means that the engagement data between different platforms aren't exchanged. How could then the original buzz receive less views than on the other shared platform? This is a question I address to @JavierbeBee because he is in a position to answer it. Are data such as views considered part of the number of views on beBee? If not, then again the data of engagement are less than reality.

#3
There is a thought in your buzz Javier \ud83d\udc1d beBee that kept me thinking about and concluded the following. I mean your thought "Instead of seeing the 90% as 鈥淟urkers鈥, I prefer to view them as a type of participant" Now, I am ready to respond. You are right. Full stop. Why? Because in our world there are billions of people who haven't joined beBee. Are they on the same level like the millions who joined? No,, they aren't because they decided to join. So, they must have joined for a reason. Yes, they are participants at least because they joined. They might be observing what is going on. They are aware of what goes on in this platform because they are members. We shouldn't equate them with those who are still non-members. I like your positive thinking, Javier.

#35
Part 2 You raise also a second important point in your writing dear Lada "I see much more selfishness in sharing, commenting, and responding to comments among this 1% of top contributors than among those who contribute from time to time like myself". And I don't know if Javier \ud83d\udc1d beBee would agree. It is that the Pareto Rule is fractal. What I mean is that if we take the 1% you are referring to is again by zeroing on it the 1:99 rule prevails. It is a self-repeating rule no matter what scale we use. So, only 1% of the 1% is truly heavily engaged. But one thing I don't like. Few authors send me messages or tag me whenever they publish. These authors have never commented on any of my buzzes. This is the highest degree of selfishness. Honestly, I ignore their invitations now. I don't have to explain why because you understand me. I respect grateful the fact that you don't always comment. This means for me that unless you are genuinely aroused by a buzz to a high degree you wouldn't comment. So, if you comment it means there is a quality buzz to read. You may have noticed that many times I commented on buzzes that you have already commented on .This is because I trust you and I know that there is a buzz worthy of reading. By the way I have been so busy lately and I haven't found the time to write the buzz on fermentation barrel and how its relatedness to management.

Part 1 I noticed that you read my short presentation because you liked it and I notified you did dear Lada \ud83c\udfe1 Prkic. Know yourself is the fist essential step for any person to develop and know which I direction to follow. You raise so many important points. I think they deserve a dedicated buzz. First, I have grown to write because I found out that the best way to learn is by writing on what you feel is important to you. By writing we find the loose ends and we search for more information to cover certain points that cross the mind to fill an "information gap". This way, the more I write, the more I search for more knowledge and I grow. Post to publishing it shall be surely interesting to get feedback because again this is an opportunity to learn more. I honestly write first because I thrive on writing. What follows is another story.

Interesting thoughts on group behaviour and classification in your presentation, dear Ali. I fell into a category of those who are inert and low involved in Twitter. But such a study can be applied to beBee as well. Since the most users on beBee and other social media are inactive or inert, we can talk about this 10 % of users and group them by their selfishness behaviour index. Honestly, I don't see myself belonging to one group only. I mostly share contents that are interesting to me, but sometimes those that might be interesting to others. I don't always engage in discussion. I am inert occasionally, but most the time social. I see much more selfishness in sharing, commenting, and responding to comments among this1% of top contributors than among those who contribute from time to time like myself. About engagement in general, we can't expect that all be positive. Someone's critical point of view shouldn't be considered as a personal attack. Anyway, the new beBee app allows us to delete person-attacking engagements. Social media is a competitive arena, where just like in real life competitors fight for dominance. So I can see it more like the red than the blue ocean. :) That's why I don't like dividing by contribution. We all contributing in a way we can.

Preston \ud83d\udc1d Vander Ven- thank you for your engagement. Being yourself one of the engaged 1% you live the value of engagement and what makes engagement rewarding and active. I surely agree with your explicit thoughts

#24
In addition to my previous response you remind me with two relevant issues dear Lada \ud83c\udfe1 Prkic. I- that not all engagements are in positive as many are negative. I reflected this on this in my presentation "Twitter Selfishness Index" https://www.slideshare.net/hudali15/twitter-selfishness-index 2- that one way of classifying engagements is to apply the Blue Ocean Strategy on them. WE may consider eliminating distraction and person-attacking engagements. To increase the level of engagement to a higher level 3- to reduce irrelevant engagements 4- to creative new more forms of engagements.

#26
Very good observation Bill King. I can add that writing a bizz on buzz as has often happened with you as an active sign of engagement. I also believe that engagements have different grades of intensity and that not all engagements are the same. We don't take this fact into our statistics of engagement to include their weighing power.

I agree with Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador, it's quality that matters and not quantity. There are users, top honey producers, who have hundreds of posts on beBee Producer but with very low, almost zero, engagement rates. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't see the purpose of excessive posting except for the sake of the Producer itself. :-)

Javier, I agree with your distribution. I've found that even when I'm fully engaged in "real' life outside the internet I still seem to gravitate toward two blogs a week--one on my Wordpress site and one on BeBee. I find that the best way to tell if I'm having an impact is not the comments but rather the number of new followers that come to me. Because my blogs are shared on Linked In, FaceBook and Twitter I see how those numbers increase on a weekly basis. I must say however that BeBee is by far the most interactive social media site I'm involved with. The active group is a ray of sunshine in my day.

#3
I agree fully with you Javier \ud83d\udc1d beBee. There is an established trend that the long-tail distribution of the internet is changing towards fewer of active participants and more of lurkers. I would add to this the same trend towards less active readers and more of lurkers. We can see this by simply calculating the number of comments versus the number of views. If we monitor this ratio over time the findings shall be consistent with what you stated in this lovely and informative buzz.

Good Point Javier. Fact is, some time ago I was much more from the 1%. In those days, I made a similar study on my followers, and it came out a similar percentage. I pulled apart then English speakers from Spanish speakers. At the look of the results, I decided to mainly publish in English, but still, low percentage of participants within my followers. Nevertheless, it did not disappoint me, as I fully understand, as you do, that most of the people are the audience, and a much lower amount is producers. No surprises here, otherwise, theatres would be always fully programmed, and nobody would go to see it. I am not so happy to admit that I have lowered my participation in this great network, although it has nothing to do with Bebee, but with some personal projects I am in and they are literally stealing all my time and energy. But, I am going to be back. This is another fact.

You can't be fully engaged if you have the life outside social media. This 1% of users are real heroes if they succeed to be top contributor and commenters besides a full-time job and other daily commitments. Hats off to them. I am more than satisfied if I am in the top 9%. :-)

I agree with you completely. There is nothing wrong with being a silent observer. All participants can be influenced and also be influential in their own way. Great observation Javier \ud83d\udc1d beBee. I would add that the level of participation can be in flux for any individual, depending on what is going on in their lives at any given time and also their natural habit of communication.

Yes it's hard to be the continual 1% when other life realities take precedence. Professions & jobs of all kinds have peak periods of extreme stress. 3 or 4 times a year a Secondary School teacher is involved in setting multiple exams, marking them and reporting on each student. Each Teacher works on average an extra 20 - 30 hours a week for 2 or 3 weeks to all hours esp if the time frame set by the school Administration is unreasonable. There is so much excellent content on beBee that for some content Lurking is all I can manage.

lovey insight Javier \ud83d\udc1d beBee! i guess, 90% 'Lurkers' are true 'suckers' honey from nectar! they wok hard to collect honey an perhaps the true honey bees! however, enjoyed read and shared. thank you for the buzz.
