Join fires a follow even, so the was mostly done to capture the widest net possible. Is the concern that people will join, follow, then leave the group?
In theory someone who joins will also be following and the real goal is to get people to follow activity.
Thanks for the response, Curtis. I can understand the desire to have the net as wide as possible.
I am not so much concerned about the Join-Leave action (I'd be impressed if we got to the point of gamification becoming a key driver of usage, and our staff then thinking that is a valuable effort).
I am much more interested in setting up the Rewards to lead people towards interacting the right way with the appropriate places. A number of our groups are Member-based, so there is a difference between just Following and Joining the group. I am looking for ways to lead our people towards getting involved in the conversations instead of listening from the sidelines, and a Join action would make a big difference to that end.
