Keep Your Online Community Simple

There are tons of things you can do in an online community.

  • Share music
  • Chat
  • “Like” things
  • Create groups
  • Blog
  • Share locations
  • Create themes
  • Create events
  • Control a calendar
  • Play games
  • And on and on…

If you are starting a community… don't just turn all that on.

Let the community help define what should be turned on and what would just be clutter.  Each community has its own goals and has a different tolerance for new technology.  People are not there for these bells and whistles.  They are there to connect with each other in online community.  Keep that the center and turn on the things that facilitate that connection.
