In this paper we explore the main patterns of communication of apartment buildings’ residents in St. Petersburg on social networking site “VK”. Using Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA), we discovered discussion topics in online groups created by residents for their houses. We find that online communication in these groups has instrumental character and is aimed at solving common problems of residents. Apart from that, co-membership analysis showed that participants of groups created for fighting with in-fill constructions are more involved in various citywide activities than participants of groups created for solving internal problems of house (e.g. unsatisfactory work of the management company or leaking ceilings).
