Sharing information in web communities

Gabrielle Demange

Published: 2008

Abstract

The paper investigates information sharing communities. The environment is characterized by the anonymity of the contributors and users, as on the Web. It is argued that a community may be worth forming because it facilitates the interpretation and understanding of the posted information. The admission within a community and the stability of multiple communities are examined when individuals differ in their tastes.

Keywords : value of information, communities, anonymity, preference diversity.
