I recently came across a bunch of links for Online Community Manager groups or communities via the Online Community Manager LinkedIn group. I figured I’d share them!
I haven’t signed up for many of these, so I don’t know if they’re worthwhile or not, but you can find that out for yourself.

Community Admins online forum. This is one I actually use. It’s fairly quiet, but I love the concept of an open forum for forum administrators to discuss common issues.
Twitter can also be a great way to keep “in the loop.” Searching certain hashtags can help you find interesting information. For example, you can search for the #octribe tag, which was a tag that came out of this year’s Online Community Unconference, as a way for online community professionals to collate information and keep the conversation going after the conference.
You could also check out the community chat on Twitter every Friday from 1pm – 2pm et. The tag is #cmtychat
Did I miss any? Do you prefer one of these over the others? I’d love to hear about it!
