A sleeping beauty in diffusion indicates that certain information, whether an idea or innovation, will experience a hibernation period before it undergoes a sudden spike of popularity, and this pattern is found widely in the citation history of scientific publications. However, in this study, we demonstrate that the sleeping beauty is an interesting and unexceptional phenomenon in information diffusion; more inspiring is that there exists two consecutive sleeping beauties in the entire lifetime… Expand

Nature or Science: what Google Trends says
TLDR
Google Trends, a web service providing detailed information on the Google search behavior of Internet users from all countries during the period 2004–2019, is presented and shows a general decrease of the demand for both journals and reveals a substantial growth in demand for Nature in some geographic regions and a decline of the interest to Science in many regions.

Competition among memes in a world with limited attention
TLDR
Surprisingly, this work can explain the massive heterogeneity in the popularity and persistence of memes as deriving from a combination of the competition for the authors' limited attention and the structure of the social network, without the need to assume different intrinsic values among ideas. Expand
Determinants of Meme Popularity
TLDR
A generative model for online sharing behavior is introduced and it is analytically shown that competition between memes for the limited resource of user attention leads to a type of self-organized criticality, with heavy-tailed distributions of meme popularity. Expand
