OF A PROFESSIONAL COMMUNITY
F. Krasnov, R. Yavorskiy
In this paper we consider formal model of an online community as a combination of social and semantic
networks. An approach is suggested to measurement of maturity level of a professional community based
on two groups of parameters, which characterize competency level and density of contacts correspondingly.
We present preliminary results of the pilot testing of the proposed approach for evaluating several city ITcommunities in Central Russia. The paper is based on the authors’ experience and achievements obtained in their work to develop Virtual Skolkovo online community.
