The psychology of 'community engagement' on Google+Extract:
"Many of us live by the concept of ‘engagement’ when it comes to Google+. We post relatable content and people who relate respond with +1s, comments, shares. In turn, our ‘connections’ form within our personalised networks.
With communities, however, it means we ‘go somewhere’ - a ‘place’ where content eddies around, as if part of the ‘stream’ is diverted i.e. people post directly to the community where they would have posted into the stream beforehand; or new information flows into a community that would not have otherwise been posted. The more engagement, the more energy there exists in that part of the swirling eddie of information."
