We find that the distribution of \" shares \" for the Facebook posts rescale in the same manner to the very same curve with scientific citations. This finding sug-gests that citations are subjected to the same growth mechanism with Facebook popularity measures, being influenced by a statistically similar social environment and selection mech-anism. In a simple master-equation approach the exponential growth of the number of publi-cations and a preferential selection mechanism leads to a Tsallis-Pareto distribution offering an excellent description for the observed statistics. Based on our model and on the data derived from PubMed we predict that according to the present trend the average citations per scientific publications exponentially relaxes to about 4.", "link"=>"http://www.mendeley.com/research/science-facebook-same-popularity-law", "reader_count"=>20, "reader_count_by_academic_status"=>{"Professor > Associate Professor"=>2, "Librarian"=>2, "Researcher"=>2, "Student > Ph.
