Community Manager Appreciation Day. This day's popularity is in lock-step with the growth of social business. Last year, I spent cmadintroducing myself as the new Jive Community Manager and getting read into the cmgr life-style. This year, I'm 1 year into my role in the Jive Community and its been an exciting time. We've introduced the thriveonjive community on-boarding experience, new and improving community IA, and most notable, an upgrade to Jive 6! But enough about the Jive Community, let's get to the topic at hand: winning a #CMAD iPad Mini!
This year for cmad13, Jive is looking to shed some more light on community managers around the world, and what better way to do it than through Gamification and giving away an iPad! Follow the instructions below, and let's start showing some appreciation!
