Hmmmm,

The ONLY explanation is 'So few have answers."

Yep, that's what I'm going with.

Good morning Michael. It is really pretty simple, some take every opportunity to lear and grow, others not so much.

There are all types of people who take part in a social media website. You have approximately 12 types of social media personalities (dippers, lurkers, approval seekers, etc...). So the same faces that appear in the Q&A section are generally all the same personality type (pertaining to social media).

When I started on ActiveRain, I heard about the blogging platform first and since we do a lot of blogging in our company, I focused on being active in that area.  It wasn't until a few months passed that I heard about the Q&A section and now I spend all my time there because I like the dialogue.  I wonder if some agents see the name Q&A and don't go there thinking it is a customer support area.

Michael... in many ways it's kind of how we see many of the same faces in other areas of Active Rain. Lots of members and many are really not that active.

Many people have not yet seen the benefits and many are very busy and do not spend much time on active rain.

The Q&A section has become part of the points game. It would probably be better if no points were awarded in this section.

The Parado Principle states the 80/20 paradox.  However, in real estate, it has been found the 93% of the business is done by 7% of the agents.  I think the same probably holds true here.
