Mincom User Group<br />The Power of Online Communities<br />It Takes A Community To Build A Community<br />“Lately, I've been working on behalf of some Forrester clients to answer the question, "How do we build a community?" Frequently, the answer is, "You don't build a community. You expand it." Few communities appear ex nihilo at the behest of a technology vendor. More commonly, successful community sites identify an existing collection of like-minded people, then entice them to your site with something of value to them.<br />“Developer communities are a good example. Megavendors like Microsoft, Oracle, and IBM have an easy time creating a community site, since there are already a lot of developers connected to these companies, and to each other. If SAP never created its own community site, somewhere in Social Media Land there would be a collection of technical professionals talking to each other about customizing and implementing SAP applications.”<br />Source: Tom Grant’s Blog @ Forrester.com - http://blogs.forrester.com/tom_grant/10-11-21-it_takes_a_community_to_build_a_community<br />
