Riffing off of arsmith's entry of a few weeks back:

clauclauclaudia's LiveJournal popularity rating is 4.73/10.
clauclauclaudia is more popular than 99.57% of all LiveJournal users.
clauclauclaudia is more popular than 78.5% of their mutual friends.

How popular are you?

I find this interesting. It's a logarithmic scale. The median popularity rating is 1.25, and, eyeballing, I'm in the top third of the popularity range for my mutual friends list, but all but about four of them are above the median.

Which means we're all freaks (well, almost all). Usual LiveJournal usage is to have a solitary journal or a couple friends, and *not* to have friended anyone you don't personally know. What I think of as the "LiveJournal experience" is to be part of these overlapping webs of acquaintance and shared culture... but it ain't necessarily so. Or if it is, then the essence of LiveJournal is experienced by a relatively small proportion of LiveJournal users. I think that's more likely.
