Communities are a fundamental structure in social organizations. It is not surprising, then, that there have been multiple attempts at modeling them in order to better understand the architecture of our civilization. Usually, these models are based on online Social Networks, which provide incredibly valuable data about communities that are believed to be significantly similar to real-life communities. Large scale models have provided insight in several macroscopic properties of these networks. There is, however, very little work on the microscopic properties of communities and their role in Social Networks, leaving an important research gap that is being fulfilled during recent years. The objective of this thesis is come up with this kind of hypotheses and analyse their role in a mathematical model.
