I’ve stumbled across three really, really good posts on understanding the growth curves and problem points in online communities. I think these are required reading for anyone trying to build a community around their publishing brand:

Community by the Numbers:

  1. Group Thresholds
  2. Personal Circles
  3. Power Laws

They’re heavy, but very insightful reading. Grab a coffee and enjoy them.
