Another way to look at the dislocation in the online publishing industry is the separation of content from discovery. It used to be that content was only discoverable at “place” where it was produced. Now content discovery, of which sharing is a part, is distinct from content creation. Google, Facebook, Twitter, Flipboard, and many others don’t create content but rather hold the enviable position of being between the consumer and the content they are looking for. We are experience a shift in value from content creators to content distributors (discovery). I suspect we are only in the 2nd inning of this profound change in the economics of content.

Have to say that the 9:1 ratio isn’t that surprising – it’s ties in well with the 1% (or 90:9:1) rule that’s been seen throughout the existence of the web:

(I personally saw it while running online forums around 10 years ago)

>> the average post on Tumblr gets reblogged nine times . . .

The second doesn’t logically follow from the first, you know. In fact, it’s completely unrelated. Or are you introducing a new statistic from somewhere else?

i wouldn’t think the mean is a good summary statistic here because the distribution is very likely highly skewed/power law-esque.
