I admit "communities" is not the proper word. I mean different groups of 
people that might benefit from using linked data. Such groups are: developers 
of applications that process or mash data published on the Web, publishers in 
the classical sense (e.g. BBC, NYT), Web 2.0 publishers (e.g. bloggers, 
Flickr users), businesses (e.g. Amazon), etc.

What I'm looking for are studies that consider one or more of these groups and 
that deal with questions such as: What percentage of people in these groups 
knows about linked data? Are people in these groups aware of the potential 
benefit linked data may provide?

The potential benefits are varying depending on the group. Mash-up developers, 
for instance, can combine data from different sources more easily. 
Furthermore, they don't have to access a different proprietary API for each 
data source.

Hope this clarifies my question.
