How to Build an Engaged Online Community
Online communities are virtual places where people gather on an online platform, for instance discussion boards, social media, and virtual classrooms to name a few. Often they are based on a shared interest, and operate under a mutually agreed social contract (community guidelines or customs/norms) and community members interact with each other. It is not necessary for an online community to have ever met each other in real life. Yet despite this, the shared experiences can be very profound. This article looks into how to create an online community, and make sure that the participants are engaged so that its content achieves its full potential.
Get Ahead with Data Privacy in Crisis Planning
When enacting organisational continuity measures, data privacy and protection might not be the first item on your action list. Acquiring new technology and setting up working methods might seem more important. Yet, in periods of crisis and transition, when privacy issues are not taken into account from the get-go, organisations often find out too late that they need to drastically backtrack to fulfil their data protection and privacy obligations. Getting ahead on protecting your data will make the process move much quicker. If you follow this guide, it will help organisations enact effective transitions in times of crisis in a way that works for you and your data concerns, and ultimately protects the people behind the data.
