Mapping the (digital) social

I’ve tried to map some of the dynamics of different ‘community’ mechanisms, partly inspired by Tom’s Model for Mapping Group Activity.

It’s very much a draft and is eventually aimed at clients and intended as a basis for developing ‘community strategies’.

What I have not done is map offline activity or populated the image with examples to draw out the specific dynamics of each community ‘type’. I ran out of room.

Do please annotate the image with any thoughts or comments…
