3. The Community Manager
The community manager as it name suggest is a fairly simple blog, and it showcases mostly stories from different platforms.
It also aggregates tweets and small piece of information from other social network.
The last time I visited it, what I noticed is a lot of links on their blog are either 404 or just directing out of the blog. That makes me think if it is still active.
4. The Community Roundtable
The Community Roundtable started in 2009, since that time they have been helping community professionals to enhance their skill set. This helps them to build and manage innovative and effective communities worldwide.
They also run community programs all around the globe.
Their main strategy is to collaborate with community managers and develop practical strategies to grow communities. They have developed some proven techniques, frameworks to scale communities to the next level.
