How to identify the most influential journalists?

Mediametric’s database contains over 600 000 journalists which were ranked based on the total number of articles they wrote in April and the number of Facebook likes these articles got over the month. Then the top 10 000 writers were analyzed further, and the results showed that 95% of all the Facebook likes are generated by the articles of just 3942 journalists, and therefore 10% of all the Facebook likes are generated by only 23 journalists (see the Picture below). So this poses a question: What value do the rest of the articles really have if they are neglected by the audience?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
