Abstract: Collective human behaviors are analyzed using the time series of wordappearances in blogs. As expected, we confirm that the number of fluctuationsis approximated by a Poisson distribution for very-low-frequency words. Anon-trivial scaling roperty is confirmed for more-frequent words. We propose asimple model that shows that the fluctuations in the number of contributors isplaying the central role in this non-Poissonian behavior.
