Purpose

Posted By Angus On March 6, 2009 @ 8:35 AM In | Comments Disabled

Wiser.org is in the business of ‘connecting people to communities of action’. Along the way we realized that people need help creating and managing these communities, especially when they have a significant portion of their life ‘online’ as opposed to ‘onlife’. This blog will showcase examples of successful community building and some of the learning we have picked up along the way while advising community managers and supporting the wider Wiser.org membership of over 70,000 people. If you are looking for specific help on community building look at our resources pages [1].
