social networks and time: visual thought on classifications


After working through my first diagrams it became apparent that there some overlap, and this over lap was driven by the users of these communities. If you’re looking to build out a network or community it’s important to look at existing models to know what kind of time your users may spend with you and other community members.

Based on the original visual thoughts, I’ve grouped a number of existing networks to best describe where they fit with one another.

    Jye – This is definitely along the right lines. What you’re decribing is a trade-off between no. of relationships & time spent on each relationship.

    Can I suggest that you check out Christopher Allen’s stuff:

    If you haven’t seen him before, he may take this to a whole nother level for you.
