A community with a purpose!
Each community must have a purpose that matters to the people each of us are trying to reach.
We cannot "create" the purpose,
we need to look for it and RECOGNIZE it.
Look for what people care about and build a community around it.
community = content
Communities are about people
The content has to be about the community.
Do not focus on yourself or your "organization/group"
make sure you write about community members
Figure out what resources you have and who you want to reach
Relationships & acknowledgment
Build personal relationships with most engaged active "visible" people/members
If you want to have real authority, you must be liked by the people who your community respects.
God, two-way, relationships with the most engaged active "visible" people/members
RELATIONSHIPS & ACKNOWLEDGMENT
Recognise individual contributions
Each of us love to be recognised
each of us should love to recognise people
Recognition is free to give and the most important way to encourage further contributions
Good debates are vital for successful communities
Do not get scared:
sustain conversation on topics of controversy
Share control and power with your community members
Hand over control and power
(let people managing take responsibility and risks)
turn involvement in ownership
the powerful us
it's mine as much is yours = our!
The right platform is the one your community know
Use tool/platform your community is familiar with
Don’t run after the last wonderful innovation just because it shine
Technology is about empowering people
