Iirc less than 10% of regular visitors to Internet forums actively participate, and of those 10%, an even smaller proportion initiate new conversations. It has been that way for 20 years, human nature and the nature of forums.

Participation rates on Twitter, Facebook , WhatsApp etc are much higher, but that is because they are designed to encourage it.
