What are the stats for the typical user ?
The stats below are the median figures for all users with more than 5k followers.

Number of followers : 7.7k 
Frequency of posts : just under 2 posts per week
Number of comments per post : 3
Number of shares per post : 1
Number of plus ones per post : 8

While the typical user gets 3 comments per post, +Marc Belley and others were wondering what the distribution curve looks like : 
19 comments put you in the top 90th percentile
10 comments put you in the top 81th percentile
7 comments put you in the top 72th percentile
5 comments put you in the top 61st percentile
1 comment put you in the top 14th percentile

Changes from the December list
+Amanda Blain and others pointed out the problem of very infrequent posters still making the top of the list.  Although this was actually very rare, I agreed that it was an issue and now have implemented the William Shatner rule.  Posters needed to average at least 2 posts per week to make the very top of the rankings.

Where do I find the complete list of all the top 1500 users ?
