Some Community Management Articles

Today, while running through my feeds, I came across two very good, very interesting articles on community management. One, by Lee LeFever, compares communities to a party. The other, by Matthew Haughey (via Darren), offers up “seven tips on how to run a successful community”. I agree with the vast majority of what they said and both are well worth reading. I hadn’t really heard of Mr. Haughey before, but I’m going to subscribe to the blog now.

Managing online communities since 2000, I publish a collective of websites known as the iFroggy Network. I wrote the book Managing Online Forums and, as a public speaker, have presented for organizations like CNN, institutions like Australian National University and conferences like SXSW. More about me.

nice pointer to Matthew, I hadn't seen that. Lee always has a lot of great insight on communities. I discuss the topic a lot myself.
