Discussion on: Community growth specialists are the future of community

This is a great post, and I find that it can help reframe someones thinking about what a "growth specialist" actually is.

Community growth people learn to spot gaps to fill.

Although spotting gaps may seem like a simple task, being good at it is underrated. I think when working on growing anything, whether it's an online community or another type of product, the unique insights someone has or gains from interacting with users is very important. Being good at listening helps a lot with ones ability to learn to spot gaps to fill.

Yes, spot on.

And I think spotting gaps is partly being a community growth person and also just being, or becoming an expert in the community you serve.
