I’ve been a “part-time” community manager for the past six months supporting the Bloomfire communities that supplement Guild Academy live online courses. I was reflecting on the role of community manager and ran across this slide presentation from The Community Roundtable on ‘the dark side of community management.’ According to the eBook, a result of discussion among members, the biggest challenges community managers face:
- Lack of or limited resources
- Lack of executive support.
- Resistance to social technology in an organization.
In support of this appreciation day here is a great slide deck from TheCR Network with strategies to avoid burnout associated with community management.
