Platform network effects do not just happen. They need to be catalyzed. Once catalyzed, they must be cultivated—continuously. This requires proactive management and therefore specialized talent. A review of recent job descriptions for Ecosystem/Community Managers indicates clear that these roles seek to fulfill two broad functions. One is to activate network effects on the demand side of the platform. This is a critical function as this is what generally drives revenues from users/customers. The other is to activate network effects on the supply side of the platform. These are the third-party complements that provide the content or functionality of the platform. The diagram below illustrates these two core contributions.
