Summary This article verifies the importance of popular users in OSNs. The results are counter-intuitive. First, for dissemination speed, a large amount of users can swiftly distribute information to the masses, but they are not highly-connected users. Second, for dissemination scale, many powerful forwarders in OSNs cannot be identified by the degree measure. Furthermore, to control dissemination, popular users cannot capture most bridges of social communities.
