Creating Your Own Facebook Community

By: Arment Dietrich | July 21, 2010 |

After reading an interesting article about another social website that popped up, I had this yearning feeling to share and discuss it, but with whom?

I didn’t want to share it on my personal Facebook page, as most of my friends and family couldn’t care less.  I thought about Twitter, but I only check that once a day so the conversation would mostly stop after one or two tweets.  Then I thought about posting the link on the Arment Dietrich Facebook community, and I stopped myself and thought, I should find a community where all members are interested in the same types of news that I am outside of my company.

So I went searching.  LinkedIn offered a few options, but after trying to join some groups, I received emails back saying I was up for review.  Up for review?  No way, I don’t want in anymore.  I often get bogged down by the noise LinkedIn groups tend to make anyway so I stuck with Facebook.  (My favorite of all online sites and you don’t get judged to join.)

After finding some cool pages, only to be let down because they were sponsored or created by a company so there would definitely be some type of hidden message coming through, I decided to create my own Facebook community, a digital marketing community.

The digital marketing Facebook community is open to anyone interested in online and digital marketing news, case studies, and updates.  I consider myself still pretty green and I’m open to more education.  Let’s admit it, no one has this down yet, so join if you want to ask questions, give your insight, and possibly learn.

Check it out, let me know what you think, and join the conversation!

Thanks for posting! Getting some great feedback on the site. I'd love to hear if others have started their own communities outside of work as well.
