Happy Friday! I've been asked a few times about how to get community members talking to each other, so I thought I'd share some ideas here. If you've had success in your community, and want to share you own tips, please comment! Use mentions to tag in other members (like Quora's ask to answer feature). If you think a specific member has the expertise to answer a question well, tag them in. This will also help surface that feature for your other members. AMA in a forum. Invite interesting...
Dear Rosemary: When you say, " Add social integrations to encourage external socializing.

The block extracts don’t cut it. The Activity Stream tries but it’s too real-time and not descriptive. You don’t have to look far for what an enticing conversation boosting feature might look like. See Facebook. I have several ideas when you’re ready to brainstorm.
When you block a person, they can no longer invite you to a private message or post to your profile wall. Replies and comments they make will be collapsed/hidden by default. Finally, you'll never receive email notifications about content they create or likes they designate for your content.
Note: if you proceed, you will no longer be following .
