I'm very happy to announce I'll be speaking at ForumCon in San Francisco on June 19th.
ForumCon attracts up to 500 forum experts/community managers to share tips, tools, and best practices for managing, growing, and monetizing forums.
The forum space is vibrant. We take the technology for granted. The term, forum, has faded in recent years but the technology remains the bedrock of almost every community platform out there.
The space is more innovative than you might imagine. The old guard of VBulletin, IPBoards, phpBB, and MyBB are still around and popular, but they are joined today by XenForo, Vanilla, Moot, Discourse, and Huddler – all platforms pushing the boundaries of what forums are doing and testing new business models.
If we can improve our ability to grow better forums, we improve our ability to build bigger, better, and more active communities.
My talk will discuss the social science we can use to increase the levels of growth and activity in any community. If you want to attend, click here.
