But companies aren't replicating the free-flowing exchange that has been a hallmark of the broader blogosphere.

What Makes an Online Community Tick?

Submitted by admin on Thu, 04/20/2006 - 07:31

What makes an online community work? We know software is only part of the solution.

The application must balance form and function - user experience - to be effective. Those items are critically important to implementing a successful community. We initially learned about them from working in open source software (OSS) communities as we implement social applications for customers.
