In my previous topic about community management on Workplace by Facebook, @thirstforwine made clear he isn’t that keen on Facebook and their huge part in community management. This got me thinking: is Facebook becoming too big in the game?
Facebook recently has changed their mission from ‘Give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected’ to Give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.
Zuckerberg explains in is Building Global Community letter: “For the past decade, Facebook has focused on connecting friends and families. With that foundation, our next focus will be developing the social infrastructure for community – for supporting us, for keeping us safe, for informing us, for civic engagement, and for inclusion of all.”
So, full force on Facebook communities. Or not?
Would you build your new community on Facebook?
