What is the Community Network Map?
The Community Network Map shows you how your community members are connected, based on your online interactions. You can explore the map by using the filters, or clicking and dragging the icons around.
The links in the map show where a connections and two-way relationships have been formed via interactions. An interaction could include a reply, reaction or @mention. If a user were to reply or react to a post, then the link will show as a solid line. This represents a two-way relationship.
How to use the Community Network Map
There are many other SWOOP measures that focus on particular features of your map. For example, the two-way connections are a count of the proportion of red links from the map. The network map will reinforce a view of the people that work together most frequently in your community.
But what about those who are connected but are slightly more distant than those in the connected core of the community? Perhaps you could make a point of brokering a connection. Being a connector can be the most productive networking activity you can undertake in a community.
