Title: A New Distribution to Describe Big Data
Author(s): Yuanyuan Zhang*
Companies: University of Manchester
Keywords: Power law distribution ; Social media ; Big Data

Here, we reanalyse social media data sets such as Twitter, Livejournal and Google+ and show that other new distributions provide better or as good fit as the Power law distribution.
