The conversations that take place in a community should be very similar to those that take place in your day to day life. 

What are your day to day discussions like? Do you ask a bunch of people for their feedback, or do you talk about general chatter? Do you pay special attention to discussions within a group brought together by a common interest?

You will probably notice most discussions begin like this:

  • What do you have planned for this weekend? 
  • How was your weekend?
  • Anyone planning on doing/watching/reading {activity/event} this weekend?
  • What did you all think of …… ? 
  • I hated/likes/loved …. ? 
  • Do you think that …. ? 
  • Are you going to …. ? 
  • Did you see …. ? 

Now, start the same discussions in your online community. Don’t go crazy. Let other people talk too. But, certainly, guide the community towards this tone and not a strictly formal community focused on a specific topic.
