What did YOU choose, and why?
Here are my options for the type of group:
- Public (anyone can see and post)
- Semi-Private (anyone can see, only members can post/comment)
- Private (only members can see, post, comment)
I won’t go with Public, but I’d love some help in deciding between the other two options.
I love how FeverBee.com has articles on their home page. I feel like I can get to know the group before joining.
However, if I hadn’t been searching for community help on Google, I don’t think I would have known that FeverBee also contained a community (tho the updated 3-option banner is a nice add:)
To start out, I’ll have more community than content, tho I won’t even have that much community. 10 to 20 members. I WILL have 10 episodes of my video-cast, and I suppose I COULD start with that. I have some older blog posts, too, that I could add, but at this point I’m not planning on adding a lot to the blog.
Again, I love the idea of a site that is functional outside the community, but I’m also happy with a landing page (like i have now) that encourages people to join the community before they get to see what’s on the inside.
Also, I’m a bit concerned whether members will want to post their questions for outsiders to see. I find that some small biz owners don’t like to let others see them have questions about their own business.
It would be cool if people could choose for a comment or post to be private to the group, but I’m uncertain whether that’s an option.
Any advice on this? What did YOU choose, and why?
