Hi Richard,

This article is fantastic, and I plan to share it with clients who are trying to build and grow community-centric social networks, but I'd like to add that a strategy like this seems to work the best when there are different stages of implementation.

To clarify, I guess if you aren't a super social media guru, it works best to pick a few ideas, say (2 & 3) events review and preview, (13) latest news and (8) Member achievements and integrate those preliminarily, adding, say (9) the gossip column and (14) job vacancy postings, later.

That way, communities that are just starting up online don't go in too many directions at once, and learn to crawl before they run! It also makes the scope as a whole, much more manageable!

At least that is what we have seen...

I will be asked to do everything the best I think! Can read your blog with my own than I found too much difference! I admire you!
