Oops, I didn't read the question properly. UGC is usually connected with SEO. Users create content that vother users find by searching. So UGC peaks when you rank for all relevant keywords in your niche.
Sure. There are tons of examples. Quora, Stack Overflow, Github and the very site you asked this question on use UGC as part of their growth stragegy.
I think startups should start thinking about moats like stock investors do. The most common economic moats are cost/pricing advantages, switching costs, efficient scale, intangible assets, and network effects.
Very similar, but I think different emphases.
It's interesting to note that GrowthHackers itself uses network effects to grow this community.
From the outside looking in, it seems this community has grown faster than most as a result of NFX. And they were able to do this with a relatively small team.
That said, I think the greatest hindrance of growth will be from negative NFX. That exists because there's a limit to what we as a community see on the front page. Reddit solved this problem by creating subreddits.
I feel Inbound.org began to erode because their community began to deteriorate, and their redesign practically killed the NFX of smaller communities, like @joelklettke 's landing page community.
I'd be interested to see how @anujadhiya, @danihart, @sean, and the rest of the GH team continues to grow this community.
I'd rather call such people highly relevant influencers than "micro".
Great analysis. Another great analysis to check out from the Acquired podcast: http://www.acquired.fm/episodes/2018/3/25/season-2-episode-5the-dropbox-ipo

I need to know when this source was published in order to be able to use in my Extended Essay. When was this source published? It would be greatly appreciated!
I've always been curious myself. Especially recently when I decided to be more engaged in a few different forums that I find interesting. I was hesitant to use my real identity and image, but I wanted to be invested long-term. This article makes so much sense, thanks for sharing!
