Generation C thrives on Connection, Community, Creation and Curation. The emergence of Gen C as an age neutral group has impacted not only the way we manage communities but how the typical community manager profile is perceived (they have to be under 26/entry level). The Gen C demographic has moved us away from age specific target audiences into a lifestyle specific target audience. Should we view community managers any other way?
If you are pursuing or you hold a role in community management, be sure to join us for this week’s #CMGRHangout on Friday, March 28th at 2pm EST!
