Online communities. Where are they? And why do people leave FB?

October 6th, 2010      

Hot off the presses, and the comic book stand. The webcomic xkcd has a Map of Online Communities, based on careful reseach and a bit of fabrication. Discover online communities that you did not know existed. It’s a big map, you’ll have to zoom in.

Soon, we hope that that more online communities will use SpicyNodes to help people find related posts and related people.

Meanwhile, why do people leave communities like Facebook? Check out the latest findings on top reasons for Facebook unfriending (press release) from a University of Colorado Denver Business School student.
