Why are communities so important? Strong communities are critical because they're often an important source of social connection and a sense of belonging.
What is an Online Community?
You're likely a member of at least one online community, whether it's a Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn group focused on a similar interest or value.
An online community, also known as an internet community, is a group of individuals who have a common interest or goal and connect with one another over the internet. Online communities have their own set of rules and standards, such as participation, moderation, and management.
However, the sort of community we'll be talking about today is a huge one: branded online communities, or communities operated by businesses.
