Listed below are links to weblogs that reference 7 Kinds Of Conversations That Always Stimulate Activity:


Patricia Ooi

You mentioned some very good conversation starters, especially 1-4. I have seen them being used in a couple of communities with huge success. The community I manage also enjoyed good response with these topics.

If I may, I would like to add one more. Popular forum games like True or False, Word Association, Keep One Drop One and many more can generate a lot of activities too. For some members, these forum games is where they post their very first comment in a community.

Stuart Foster

Great conversation starters. Especially because they can be driven/customized for every community. They also can build on one another and will really take off once a certain amount of prime movers take part.

Luc Despres

Great information, I will be trying to implement these tips asap.
