Figure 5

(A,B) Growth curves of the overall Boogaloo movement (size is the combined number of users in their Facebook Pages), and the entire ISIS movement (size is the combined number of users in their VKontakte Groups). Insets show distribution of sizes of the individual groups at the predicted onset \({t}_{onset}\) (vertical gray line in main panels). The maximum-likelihood estimate for the magnitude of the negative power-law exponent in each case is \(2.5\) to two significant figures, which is the same value as predicted by our mathematical theory (SI Sect. 2.7, Eq. (23)). The rigorous statistical analysis that we follow to obtain these results, is given in SI Sect. 3.1.
