The monthly Community Builder chat series is part of the #4Change community of regularly scheduled chats, bringing together people from around the world to talk about examples, practices, tips and more as we all explore the way technology can be used for social change.  This is the second in what will be a monthly series of chats specifically focused on Community Building.

Topics:

Thanks to the rich conversation in last month’s chat, we have our main questions selected already. But, you can still add thoughts ahead of time, or share more questions that we may get to or save for another upcoming chat. This time we will be addressing:

  • Migrating a community from one platform to another
  • Building a loop between online and offline community activities

Share your ideas ahead of time in the comments below, or on twitter using #4change and/or #commbuild – have an idea for a better hashtag for this chat? Please leave a comment with your idea!

September 2010 Community Builder Chat: How to Participate

  • Looking forward to it! Thanks for the Facebook reminder, now it’s on my calendar. I thought Cover It Live worked really well, glad there is a transcript of last month’s chat.

    One thing I’d love to explore related to “migrating a community from one platform to another” is how to bring cohesion to a community that may be interacting in multiple places. Our constituents tend to interact on our listservs, but they are also starting to use Facebook. That’s about as techie as they get right now. We would like to try to push them to use our website as a place to have conversations, because that is where the content is stored and it seems to me that conversations can add value to particular pieces of content. But just because that makes sense to me, I don’t know that the users see the value in this enough to make a behavioral change.

    Hope your move is going well – chat with you Thursday!
