Dunbar’s Number w/ Mobilized Social Networks

January 13, 2010

Information Visualization of how applied social networks grow with respect to sustainability (not the green kind).

As an idea grows, in what direction does it grow, and who controls it? As more people on a collaborative site join, groups either lean towards splinter groups, or more detailed functional groups fueling major tasks of the parent vision.  Lesser tasks can be crowd-sourced by people who have lesser commitment.  As groups become larger, they become more visible to other organizations, groups, and sponsors. Information can be shared at any level (admin pending) to any group.

Do core groups shift to management roles as they do in the real world? Im sure if I actually looked, that I could find this in some org behavioral/HR textbook somewhere.
