After reading Daryl’s take on the importance to name company’s bloggers, I’ve got some thoughts of my own. Since I’m one of those rare individuals with the title “Community Manager” in Singapore. (Perhaps there’s more, but I’ve not met them yet. Would love to mingle with more CMs if there’s a chance to.)
I’d wanted to leave this as a comment in his blog, but felt more appropriate posting it since it seems more like a thought than a comment. Hmm… anyway, my immediate thoughts that came to mind…
Am I the face for Yebber already?
Am I suitable to be the one in the front line of such organisation?
So what if I leave Yebber one day?
Would the community that I’ve build leave too?
Would the community change or even disappear?
So if the community moves together with the Community Manager/the blogger behind the organisation’s blog, does that mean that they’re the important element that cannot be taken lightly for?
Will elaborate on the points and thoughts later tonight or tomorrow.
While typing this post, I’ve also started a group in facebook! Talk about multi-tasking! (Yes! We GEN-Y people are great multi-taskers! Ha!) So if you’re a CM of any businesses or organisations too, why not join the group? Or tell your friends if you know any in the same line. :)
Also going to consolidate some links for reference. If you know of any interesting reads, share with me too ya. :)
