Have you ever seen an online group or chat room filled with thousands of members and yet hardly any real activity? Let’s talk about that.
This is so true, people don't want to build slow. It's the only sustainable way. I built a community over ten years, slowly with one rule. No question is a daft one - it changed everything including my life.
Another thing to consider is that we as the community owners might need to have conversations with our members. I delved into my community to see if the people who weren't commenting were getting something, turns out they were in their droves. They just didn't feel like they could add anything to the conversation.
