Virtual communities: how Big Data reflects society 

Modern society is a large, complex network that in many ways resembles the neural network of the brain. The existence of connections, of links, is responsible for the rapid growth of the web and of the Internet, for the speed of global communication, of the spread of news, information, epidemics and financial crises. Every phenomenon of social complexity has to do with networks and with the collective behavior of communities. The science of networks and Big Data offers new perspectives from which to observe, measure and predict the emergence of inequality and of hubs, the superconnections linking everyone; the diversity and intelligence of communities, the spread of innovations, the polarization of opinions and the loss of collective intelligence. Flushing away any preconception and judgement.
