e-mint’s 2011 review

In 2011, there were 1,084 posts made to the e-mint group.   September was the slowest month with 43 messages and January was the most active with 175 messages.

We managed to have 4 e-mintup f2f sessions during the year, including 1 in Bristol.   Thanks to the e-minters who organised those!  (If you’re interested in helping us organise an evening, please get in touch).

And after years & years of people suggesting e-mint host a conference, we’re putting our toe in the water with Vircomm Summit 2012 on Feb 9th.  The lovely & wonderful Rebecca Newton & Oxana Morozowska have been working hard to bring together an amazing schedule of events.

If you haven’t purchased a ticket for this event, get in quick!  Early bird tickets have been extended til Jan 9th!

On the list, we talked about a whole range of topics including:

  • Should a community for 5-12 year olds have a Facebook page (as FB doesn’t allow those age groups)?
  • Profanity filters – good? bad? useless?
  • Facebook,  Facebook, Facebook & some more Facebook
  • Social media vs online community – what are the differences
  • Is social media too young of a field to have ‘experts’ and ‘gurus’?
  • Should you delete a community member’s posts when the member deactivates their account
  • Lots of job postings!

Hope everyone has a fantastic 2012!  – Jen
