I think relationship management is an important one. I'm curious whether anyone knows community managers who are not people persons/extroverts but rather introverts 💭

Another introvert over here! I may not like hanging out with huge groups of people IRL, but I sure do like facilitating connections and trying to make the internet a better place for people to gather.

I'm here 😋 Not a people's people. Reason why I love being behind the desk and just do the online thing more.

Hello, big introvert here. Many, if not most, of the community managers I've gotten to know closely in the past year would consider themselves introverts rather than extroverts.

Ho that's awesome to hear! Was suspecting that we'd have different types of personalities but mostly introverts I didn't expect. Judging too quickly apparently
