The common place of meaning. What we think together, what we create together. The meaning we gather together to for2fy the commons.

  • Trust: In a world where knowledge becomes obsolete faster than ever before, holding on to informa2on isnt the compe22ve advantage sharing and learning is. However, sharing especially sharing tacit knowledge only happens when theres deep trust between people Shared purpose: Individuals brought together in a community must have a common set of beliefs and goals. Why are they in this community? How can the community help them meet their personal and professional goals? A good community manager will design the community to enable connec2on based on a shared purpose. WIIFM (whats in it for me?): A community is a healthy ecosystem of consuming and contribu2ng readers (a nicer way of saying lurkers) and contributors. There has to be great content to consume and people to create this great content. People are inherently self-interested, and will contribute to a shared space when the value they receive is greater than what they put in. You cant just tell people to create stu but a good community manager designs around members WIIFMs. Shared ownership: To ac2vely contribute to a community, people must also feel like they own a part of it. A good community manager knows how to design and build community with the community from the very beginning and to uphold these collabora2ve standards. Planned serendipity: A community is magic because it helps people not only nd answers to what they know they dont know but also, discover something (or someone) that they dont know they dont know. Serendipity is a powerful concept, and is where good ideas come from. The community manager will design the condi2ons for people to serendipitously discover people and content.
