To keep members active and newcomers wanting to come back, there needs to be fun things happening in your community. 


Of course community managers run polls, open discussions and post documents to develop the knowledge base.  And, as community managers, we can help our audience get more out of the community and its content by upping interaction and adding some fun.  Below are a few examples. 

  1. Use a discussion thread to create a collaborative story
  2. Use the poll to determine who the next guest blogger will be
  3. Upload a virtual card in celebration of your community's birthday and invite others to do the same.  Offer a reward or an incentive to the winner.



SHARE how you up the interaction and the fun in your community.



NB:  Make sure that all this activity can be seen front and center on your overview page.
