Different community managers have different styles. A Fun Facilitator, for example, runs the community in a way that lets people enjoy themselves and be relaxed and silly. A Prolific Poster contributes lots of new information and is an avid writer of posts who is right at the center of the community, often bonding closely with members. A Mechanical Mastermind dives deep into the “nuts and bolts” of how the community’s online infrastructure works, and is highly adept with different features, settings and technical elements.
- Community managers are diverse as to education, human resources, research and journalism but each manager brings a different set of values and strengths to the team.
- A community manager that works as a fun facilitator wants the community to share ideas, ask questions and connect but having fun while doing it.
- A community manager who is a prolific poster is at the leaderboard in postings and blogging at the community. The users know he always has their back.
