Day 13 on the Job

Today is my 13th day in the new job as the community lead for the Business Platform Division. It has been a filled 13 days – in a very good way. I’ve been working closely with my team to get educated on community and to begin to formulate our community strategy. This includes identifying which communities we should engage with and how, the use of various existing technologies (Twitter, LinkedIn, MSDN Forums. Stock Overflow and others) and new technologies we need to invent.

As we’re in the early stages I have yet to reach any conclusions on which communities we should engage with and how we should engage.

This means it’s the perfect time for you to share your thoughts and insights. Some of the areas I’d like to hear from you include:  Which communities do you spend your time? Which hashtags do you follow? What LinkedIn groups are you part of? Where would you like us to engage? What would you like to see us do more/less of?

I’m a big believer in listening to customers and users who ultimately make a community strong and vibrant. While I can’t respond to each, I promise you I read each and every comment. Thank you in advance for sharing.
