Community Equity Widgets explained

How do we visualize Community Equity ?

This blog post explains the various widgets we have implemented as part of our SunSpace project.

Feedback is highly appreciated !

Personalized Widgets

This are set of widgets which are personalized for a specific user

My Community Equity

Use Case: Show the overall Contribution and Participation Equity across all communities of a user
Objective: Motivate a user to improve her/his overall ranking

Remark :

– Data Privacy laws (in our implementation only the user can see this widget)
– Show % of ranking can be misleading when you have only 5-10% of very active users

  I don’t really like this widget. I would like see more and eBay like model with stars,diamond etc..
any feedback and suggestions are highly appreciated

My Contribution Tag Cloud

Use Case: Show all Contribution Tags of a user ordered by Tag Equity (Social value of a tag)
Objective: Show a users expertise based on her/his overall contribution

Remark :
– need a clear tagging policy.
– Skills (tags) should be suggested during content creation
– can be combined with Contribution Listing widget via inter-widget communication

Top Contributors – Top Countries

Use Case: Show the top xx contributors or countries of all or a specific community

Top Content

Use Case: Show the top xx content of all or a specific community
Objective: Show the most valued content of a community

Remark :
- if a user looking at this widget – own content she/he has authored is shown in
bold

We can use the tag cloud or listing widget to show the most valued content of a community

or a specific widget to show the top content. Furthermore there is an activity widget which shows the details per content (URL)

Expert Calculation

Use Case: Show the top xx experts for tag x

Objective: Automatically calculate expertise of users (our countries with expertise) based on the social feedback they receive on their contributions

Remark :

This is probably the coolest expert location model today as it calculates experts based on contributions of a user and the
social feedback of the entire community

What’s next ?

We are tuning the mathematical model and history service to provide time bound Equity.

As example we want to show to most valued person,content or community during a specific time period.
