7 Lessons on Building a Community

by Carl Natale on July 17, 2010

Pretty good piece on building community:

1. The community is in control

2. Be the best electronic version of yourself

3. Listen more than you talk

4. Keep it really interesting

5. Monitor and contribute daily

6. Don’t let questions or comments go unanswered for more than 24 hours

7. If you don’t genuinely care, don’t do it
