Community and Leadership in the Social Media Age

Published on

The face of community is changing. With people spending more time on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram, leaders need to adapt. Can we find volunteers? Are virtual communities as real and vibrant as real-world communities? What happens if people don’t have the technology or internet connections to participate in this new world? Can we discuss difficult issues online? How do we deal with self-segregating communities online?

  • We are being too imprecise in our language use when we call online communities “communities”. They are pale imitations.The meaning of community is fragmenting so much that we can no longer assume agreement on what “community” is. We must work to achieve that basic agreement before we can truly advance a new vision. “Community” cannot exist without a set of affirmative responsibilities. We're desperately sticking the label "community" onto any gathering of people because we don't know what else to call them. But "community" comes not just with a group of people, but with some set of affirmative responsibilities to those other people. A community persists even as people come and go, but if a person can leave without the community experiencing some sort of impact, it cannot truly be called a community.
