Online Communities 2

"Communities rise and fall, and total membership numbers are no longer a good measure of a community's current size and health."

xkcd has updated its classic Online Communities Map, as earlier posted here.

Still absent, as expected, are the near-invisible, undetected or simply unindexed Deep Web, Dark Internet, and darknets, said to be comprising the real bulk of data posted on the Internet.

Although to be fair, these three kinds of Internet "dark matter" are practically impossible to measure.
