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.


Interesting stuff from Jakob Nielsen as useful - though I really wish that

a) he'd join the 21st C. and get an RSS feed for his blog web column.
b) he'd realise that good design is part of usability.

Interesting. I certainly remember when setting up a wiki for a genetics project done in collaboration between varied and geographically dispersed science groups we were careful to populate it with material to start with, and then did one-on-one training sessions with the scientists to get them using the wiki and encourage contributions to it

And yet old media still says #twitter #fail because 90% of twitter accounts are only used once, or similar...

That's just the way it is.
