Have you heard about the 90-9-1 rule of social media. Might sound like some secret code but its all about understanding who’s who in the realm of social media.
Picture this: you’re hanging out on your favorite social media platform, scrolling through posts, memes, and videos. Guess what? The majority, a whopping 90%, are the silent observers, the wallflowers of the digital dance floor. These folks are the ‘lurkers.’ They’re in stealth mode, just soaking up all the content without much of a peep.
Now, let’s talk about the 9%. These guys are the ‘kinda active’ crew. They engage with the stuff they see, maybe hit that like button, or even share a funny cat video. They’re the in-betweeners, not quite lurkers, but not full-blown creators either.
But hold up, we’ve got the 1% shining stars! These are the life of the social media party. They’re the ones who are out there, putting together the cool posts, hilarious memes, and thought-provoking videos that keep us all glued to our screens. They’re the content-creating dynamos, keeping the social media wheels turning.
Now, here’s the juicy part: while the 90% are like the silent movie audience, keeping the platform’s money train chugging along by watching ads, it’s the 1% that’s the real MVP. Why, you ask? Because they’re the ones who bring in that 90% audience to watch those ads in the first place. It’s a bit like a chain reaction, with the 1% kickstarting the whole content extravaganza.
Threads, the cool new app in town, faced a little hiccup. See, nurturing those 1% creators takes time – they need to build their own fan base, become influencers, and basically work their magic. But Threads was on a bit of a time crunch. After its grand launch, it didn’t have enough runway to give those 1% folks the TLC they needed. Result? People hopped on, didn’t find anything worth their scrolling thumb, and just bounced. Building up that 1% crew is a slow-burning process. They evolve into these social media maestros, with their own tribe of loyal followers. Without this magical transformation, Threads is fast losing the initial steam.
