Use the new Network Graph Visualization to learn more about your community engagement. This feature enables you, as a community owner/facilitator, to view community participation at both a high level and at an individual member level.
You can do things like:
- See which members are connected
- Identify community leaders
- Identify at risk members that need help
Sometimes members can fall behind in a community for various reasons, such as social anxiety, family circumstances, or academic challenges. It’s best to identify these situations early on in order to avoid long-standing isolation of community members. Our new networks feature empowers you to proactively identify at-risk members and facilitate interventions.
The circles with profile photos in the above image represent individual members of your community, and the arrowed lines show connections between these members. Connections can be formed when members comment on a post or receive a comment or reply on their post or comment. The number of arrowed lines can indicate how connected a member is.
Additionally, the location of the circles indicate the relative engagement of community members. The centrally located circles are more actively engaged in your community, while the members on the periphery are less engaged.
In order to access this beta feature you’ll need to manually add /network-graph to the end of the Yellowdig.app website URL (see image above). And if you’d like to see a Network Graph option in your sidebar, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
Lastly, you can use the Chart tab (see above image) to get a quantitative measure of your community's engagement. This data includes the number of incoming connections and outgoing connections for each member, the percentage of members that received responses, and more.
