🗺 Mapping the Growing Ecosystem of Community Tools!

Community is a hot topic right now and the world of community is exploding with new tools and platforms. We get asked all the time about various tools in the community space, or if we've heard of a new product that just launched.

We started keeping track of community tools, and have compiled them all into the graphic you see below.

unnamed (12)

In total we mapped 137 tools across 11 different categories. 45% of these tools are less than 3 years old!

Check out the full post for some of our highlights and favorite tools in each category, as well as a high res version of the graphic!
