Ross Mayfield has plotted an "Ecosystem of Networks" which is a part of a larger big-sky-think about Clay Shirky's Power Laws.
What I found interesting here is that there are three distinct type of networks and what their network functions are. Here you'll notice the mysterious number '150' pertaining to a network whose function is social.
Further indication that a good 'community' takes place in units under 150.
