How Is A Branded Online Community On Networked Different From A Community On Social Media?

While an individual could have a community on social media, its control over that group might come with limitations or restrictions. Here are some key differences between Networked online communities and communities on social media:

1️⃣ Privacy

One primary difference between using a social media platform for your online community instead of a private company page is that, with social media groups, you have less control over the privacy of your members. The parent networking site of a social media page can access user actions and information. With Networked on the other hand, we prioritize user privacy with comprehensive controls and secure data handling.

2️⃣ Access to customer data

While some social media sites share valuable data and key performance indicators (KPIs) with brands, the networking sites themselves have sole access to customer data. Usually, accessing the data costs money and some sites might limit the data they share. With Networked on the other hand, you have a dashboard that provides analytics tools for understanding community engagement and user behavior. You can use this data to develop specific offerings or appeal to certain groups.

3️⃣ Community control

Finally, online communities that exist on social media sites have to follow the rules of those sites. While an administrator of a group page could monitor posts, they don’t have complete control over user activity. With a branded online community on Networked, you can have more control over activity within your group. Also, if a social media or networking site makes a major change, like updating their algorithms, community rules or user requirements, you’d have no proper control or warning for these changes. This means that you could lose an entire community or undergo drastic changes that will cost a lot of time and effort.
