binocularAs your community grows, you’ll start to see clear patterns of which areas and topics are most interesting to your members.

Whether you use Google Analytics to measure activity, or simply look around at which groups and forums are busiest, you’ll want to help nurture the areas that are working, and prune those that aren’t.

Use ‘sticky threads’ (discussions that appear at the top of the page) to encourage the most popular posts.

You will also, from time to time, need to remove content and possibly members who are a bad fit for the community. Don’t panic, this happens in every community. We provide tools that make this simple.
