The Critical Periphery in the Growth of Social Protests

Fig 1

Reach measured as a fraction of all followers.

In this schematic representation, there are three protest participants that accumulate six unique followers. The relative reach of each participiant (nodes in red) is the fraction of their direct followers over the total available in the system (nodes in orange). We normalize these counts to fall in the interval [0,1] for the three networks.
