Interactions are the lifeblood of communities.

Without interactions, members can’t build relationships, a community culture can’t be develop, a social hierarchy can’t be established. Without interactions, you have nothing. Without interactions, people wont keep coming back nor invite others to join and participate.

You can build a lot on top of interactions, but you can’t build anything without them.

You need to directly stimulate interactions. Most community plans would benefit by stripping away everything in your plan/strategy that doesn’t directly stimulate interactions (interactions, not just visits). Forget the branding, design, content, promotion, monetization.
