  • Effectively Managing Online Community | Hosted by #CMmeetup

    "The best community managers are like a good party host mixed with a fine restaurant host. I make a distinction because a party is more personal and a restaurant requires their host to think with a business mind. Community managers need both skillsets in equal space."  - Chris Brogan, "Essential Skills of a Community Manager"

    From recent news about Dell and Gatorade Command Centers* to the proper tools, measurement and strategy, this event will explore the field of community management. Whether you're a current community manager, an aspiring one or curious about managing online communities, we hope you will come join us.



    6:00-6:30: Networking

    6:30-6:50: A talk by Mark Coatney, Director/Media Evangelist at Tumblr 

    Mark joined Tumblr in July 2010 to help shape and grow a community, and to guide publishers into a new and better way of connecting with their readers. Before Tumblr, Mark was the Senior Articles Editor at Newsweek.com, and led the news organization's presence on social media platforms such at Twitter, Facebook, Digg, and Tumblr. Mark has been a vocal advocate in the role of community for publishers, journalists, and technology platforms, and will share some of his insights and experiences with all of us.
