According to Paul Schneider, more people are getting involved in online communities than initially thought.
Ranting about poor service via social media is commonplace, which is why it should be dealt with carefully.
Great examples of informative infographics created at the Washington Post.
This blog by Martin Belam sums up the situation faced by many community managers, many of the people writing comments are not engaging their brains. It’s a very amusing read which will strike a chord with anyone who has been moderating online communities. I have been moderating and banning for 15 years and it never ceases to amaze me what people think is reasonable.

Curiosity led me to the Sunday Times Social List after spotting a few #stsl tweets and reading this blog by Adam Tinworth. I don’t consider myself influential, I share the occasional opinion and find other people far more interesting, but put myself on the list anyway for a laugh.
