Thumbs down Downward spiral

I am not convinced that everyone who joins need to get comments for the success of a social media site. From network theory perspective, it is the activity of the hubs and the central nodes (the highest number of shortest paths through any given node pairs that pass through a node) that matter for the general network growth, functionality and stability. TE policies several years ago discouraged the hub nodes (the most active people and their most active friends) in favor of averaged distributive nodes (any and all newcomers). The obvious instability followed. I don't really see a way out, mathematically speaking, until one changes the theme and somehow attracts a collection of people with common interests.
