Are you doing anything different in your community given the radical changes in our day to day lives recently?
Our community is normally task-oriented and the task is creating great live musical performances. With the shutdowns - almost all of our members have had all their gigs canceled.
This means three things.
- We have more time on our hands.
- There are significantly fewer practical applications for our products.
- Members have more time to explore our products (testing the limits, figuring out the finer details of how to operate them).
Stepping away from our task-centered conversations I have started several topics to take the time to have people get to know one another better.
Here's an example: What are you doing with your extra time these days
I've extremely pleased our members have not just copy/pasted common memes or spiraled downward to the lowest-common-denominator conversations found in social media.
How's it going at your place?
