Social trading is a service by which investors copy strategies set up by strategy providers while they all earn on profit together.
An investor is a person that uses the Social Trading service to browse, choose and subsequently copy the trades made in a strategy created by a trader we refer to as a strategy provider.
The goal of a strategy provider is to profit off their trades, and as they do investors also earn (at proportional rates). The strategy as a whole is measured by metrics for calculating return and risk, the former being a signal of performance while the latter a dynamic risk range that updates daily.
