What are Digital Communities? Many digital markets don’t fully appreciate the notion of a digital community, nor understand the interplay between the participants, influencers, content creators and lurkers. The idea that the brand is a static hub with followers aligned around this is the normal representation of a digital community. This however is not the case. Online communities are collections of hubs that are continually evolving and changing.

However, with new mathematical approaches to social media marketing, in-depth reports now visually provide critical inputs to Brand and social marketers.

FAN BASE Communities Communities & Interests Connections are key in online social networks; people are loyal to whom they are connected to and what provides them benefits. Communities What are they? People do not connect at random, they connect according to their preferences. In social networks these preferences are revealed in sets of densely connected nodes as nodes with common preferences will connect with one another. These sets of dense connections are what we as is commonly referred to as ‘communities’. A social map of your network is necessary to identify those communities, their centre of interest and who are in them. In addition our analysts work closely with you to improve the communities, your presence and importance in them. 07
FAN BASE Actors Actors & Participants 08 To understand networks and their participants, we evaluate the location of actors in the network. Measuring the location is finding the centrality of all actors. These measures give insights into the various roles and communities in a network - who are the influencers, hidden experts, leaders, brokers, isolates, where are the communities, who is in them and why - who is in the core of the network, and who is on the periphery? We provide you with actionable insights that allow you to target your online audience with great precision subsequently increasing reach, effectiveness and return on investment.

FAN BASE Relationships Social Relations Mapping Digital Jungle’s social network technology and analysis does not focus solely on attributes of individuals. Growing a community is not just adding new members. It requires adding both people and relationships. The number of participants is important in social networks, but it's the relationships and the patterns they create that are key! A community thrives by its connections, not by its collections! It's the relationships, and the prospect of future relationships, that keep members active and excited. 09 We explore the relationships and exchanges between people and how these connections influence choices. • • • • • • Social Roles: boss of, teacher of, friend of, etc. Affective: likes, respects, etc. Cognitive: knows, views as similar Actions: talks to, share activities together, etc. Distance: Path length between actors Mathematical: What if someone leaves the network
