A Statistical Analysis of VK.com Entrepreneur Community Network

Abstract: In this paper we study statistical properties of the weighted network formed by 40.000 entrepreneurship communities from social media site VK.com. The goal of the research is to verify if the behavior of digital consumers has changed in the times of crisis and pandemic. We analyze two snapshots, the first one was collected in Autumn 2019, and the second one on April 2020, amidst COVID-19 pandemic. We compare such characteristics of the network as degree distribution, distribution of edge weights, and multivariate distribution of weights and degrees, and analyze how these characteristics changed during the pandemic.
