Q4: November 13, 2009 - A question for the community here. Where do YOU want to see this group evolve to? What opportunities do you feel CmtyChat has to further expand and reach out to more CMs and those wanting to just learn more about community management?
Q3 : November 13, 2009 - Being that it's Friday the 13th, let's hear some horror stories. What are some of the biggest challenges you've faced as a CM but also, how did you overcome those obstacles? (suggestion by Tanya McGinnity)
Q2: November 13, 2009 - With some businesses slowly shifting their internal culture and how they run their biz towards the way of this social web (re: P2P social business: http://thebrandbuilder.wordpress.com/2009...), how will CMs have to adjust to these shifts? Where will their skills/roles evolve to with this change in how businesses function?
Q1: November 13, 2009 - Living in a social economy where a company's every move is seen/heard, there are org's that have communities who don't necessarily believe in them. How can these co's/CMs bridge this trust gap? What steps do they need to take and where do they start?
Q4/WRAP-UP: November 6, 2009 - Share your best community resources (not necessarily jobs/job boards - re: competition ;) that can be valuable to people who are on the hunt. (Only if you feel comfortable doing so)
Q3: November 6, 2009 - Wise words always tell us to network before we need our community. What if you're late to the game, how can you connect with likeminded individuals while gaining value in your search - without the ME mentality?
Q2: November 6, 2009 - Competition. There's TONS of it out there now. How transparent and open should you be with your communities about your search, companies you're contacting, etc. - without feeling like you've tipped others in the process.
Q1: November 6, 2009 - We've seen the job search evolve greatly given new technologies and networks that we have access to today. How can communities help out CMs (and the like) get back on their feet?
WELCOME: November 6, 2009 - Welcome folks to this week's CmtyChat! Can't believe it's November already but it's a great time of year. Feel free to introduce yourself, what you do, and how we can help you.
Q3: October 16, 2009 - Getting a little deeper into the scope of CMs, how do you balance the responsibility of being a community manager and your personal lifestyle? Does being a CM consume that part of your life? Compromise?
Q2: October 16, 2009 - Some companies/employees would rather prefer a '2-headed monster' for their CM role. How do they balance 2 CMs and their responsibilities? Can a community connect with 2 separate faces to the company?
WARM-UP: October 16, 2009 - Hey everybody! Thanks for joining us for CmtyChat this Friday. Feel free to introduce yourselves here, tell us what you're doing this weekend, or mention any additional questions/thoughts you have for today's chat!
Q5: October 2, 2009 - A question to our CmtyChatters: What topics or ideas in the world of community management do you want Bryan and I to cover in future chats? We're always looking to provide value to everyone that comes here, so feel free to share any topics that would be helpful to the cmty!
Q4: October 2, 2009 - Are co's trying to PUSH the point of community engagement/monitoring too much? Sidewiki and Seth Godin's Brands in Public are doing similar forms of pushing products/services towards companies and brands. What's that say to the CMs and Social Media folks out there?
