Concentrate Activity

Imagine you have 30 people that want to meet up. Where would you do it?

You could meet in a bar or cafe, but it will probably feel a little too loud and squished. You could meet in an exhibition centre, but it would feel too empty and lack a close atmosphere.

Or you could meet in a local community hall. It's cosy, not empty.

This is just as true for communities. When you launch a community you want to focus your activity in as small a place as possible. Don’t use all the features you have available. Hold some back for when the community grows.

Concentrate your activity and add more areas when you need them.
