The Six Hats Of A Community Manager


Community Management is an evolving role and organizations are beginning to see the need for this role. In this post, I want to talk about the different hats that we need to don as community managers. Needless to say, we need to be cheerleaders for our community.

When I read Rachel Happe’s (@rhappe ) post, The Emerging Career Path of Community Professionals , I was reminded of my older posts on community management and the skills required. I wrote about the tenets of community management based on my experience.

In this post, I wantto talk about the different hats that we need to don as community managers.This was well put in the diagram by Andy Wibbels which you can see in this post called Inside the Mind of a Community Manager.It graphically represents a number of things a community manager needs to be aware of in her/his role. In my post, I want to explore all the "hats" a community manager needs to wear to execute her role.

Content Curation: One More Role for an Enterprise Community Manager

How does this tie in with the role of a community manager, you may ask! What role can an enterprise community manager play? In this case, the community manager's role would be akin to that of a museum curator. Some of these can be achieved via the user interface design and the use of pre-built widgets that allow community managers to pull in content defined with specific tags and categories. This can be made as general or as granular depending on the community's need.

The tacit gathering around new 'digital totems' to form transient interest groups is another form of evidence as is the marking out of territories through the sharing of social bookmarks, the tagging of digital objects and voting for preferences and usability.

Digital literacy 6: Organising and sharing content

Learning with e's

Answer - you organise it by 'tagging' it. Tagging content is a bit of an art. Tagging will also make finding content within a large list of bookmarks a lot easier. In yesterday's blogpost, I talked about why students should create their own content.

Think like a publisher

Clark Quinn

As I detailed in an article , issues included granularity and tagging vocabulary. While this is largely for formal content, it could be community-generated content as well.

The future of libraries?

Clark Quinn

They were some of the first to deal with the issues involved in content organization, leading to information science, and their insight into tagging and finding is still influencing content architecture and engineering. He aptly pointed out how this is a natural way to use the fact that libraries tend to exist on public money; to become an even richer part of supporting the community.

And because we defined the API using Swagger , it’s also possible to automatically generate an API client library in any language supported by OpenAPI community. Going in the other direction, from Cloud to Engine, may require some changes if your application uses features that are only available in Cloud, such as invitations and tagging.

The architecture of learning

Learning with e's

Social tagging for example, is becomes increasingly stronger as people populate it with content and links. This content is generated not only by the experts, but also increasingly by the learners themselves, and tends to be organised by the community rather than by the experts.

Customized descriptions of each bookmark can be added So, I started with bookmarking and tagging the links I have collected on my Free e-Learning page and added a few blogs, blog communities and some e-learning resources. I signed up for Delicious social bookmarking quite a while ago, but it just didn't take for me. Perhaps the fact that I could not access it at work or that I was perfectly happy with using my browser for bookmarking.

The push toward content curation


This includes when and how to share things to your direct customers, and when and how to share things with the broader community. Internally, it can be both collecting resources in a portal and tagging them with terms that will assist your workers to find them.
