A Real-World Spreading Experiment in the Blogosphere

Abstract : An experiment was designed to observe a spreading phenomenon in the blogosphere. This experiment relied on a small applet that participants copied onto their own web page. The dataset obtained which is freely available for study is presented, and a basic analysis is conducted. It is discovered that, despite the classical assumption, in this experiment famous blogs do not necessarily act as super spreaders.
