Why don’t you comment?
Jakob Nielson, a top web guru, says: “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”. If I look at this blog, the trend is somewhat similar. 90% of the visitors do not comment, they read the articles, they read the comments and they vote on opinion polls, for some reason they do not comment.
Let me speak to them directly. Ok guys! I’m talking to you. I’m talking to those who enjoy reading the arguments and discussions but do not comment. I’d like to know those reasons that keep you away from pouring your points of view in the comment section. And I’d like to see if I can do anything to address those reasons by any kind of improvements.
If you are a non-commenter, before we proceed any further, let’s take this poll.
