Thanks for being here! I’m glad to be here and want to thank Carsonified for having me. Today I want to cover creating and maintaining a community and the things you’ll have to watch for along the way. I’m probably like a lot of people here in the crowd today, I started out as single developer building my own multi-user app, it turned into a bustling community and eventually became business. If you’re launching your own social app, my hope is that you can take these lessons and avoid all the mistakes because your competitors will make them and it will give you a leg up.
What’s stopping your site/app from building out a community?
Any site/app you create should include a social component
Find your balance and run your community on an even keel
A successful community can please readers and creators alike
