We were excited to learn that Managing Online Forums by Patrick O’Keefe was reviewed on Slashdot yesterday. There has been a little dancing in the office today and memories of Debugging‘s review many moons ago. Read the great (and detailed) review (thanks to GeekBook.org).
Managing Online Forums is not just about the nuts and bolts of forums, but about the people who use them, from the ones that will make a great part of your community to those that maybe [cough] troublemakers. Patrick has seen it all and can give you great advice about dealing with that tough human aspect of the social web.
That’s not all the great stuff about the book Chris Brogan said “is a worthwhile book to buy and absorb. There are TONS of great resources in there, and lots of real world examples for you to follow. This alone makes the book a great resource to have on the shelf.”
Learn more about the book at Patrick’s excellent website, including sample templates and more.
Keep your managing communities knowledge strong at Patrick’s blog.
Get bitesize insight and some enthusiastic song quotes from Patrick’s Twitter feed.
Patrick O’Keefe is the founder and owner of the iFroggy Network, an Internet network featuring content, community and e-commerce sites. He manages seven communities, including phpBBHacks.com, SportsForums.net, KarateForums.com, CommunityAdmins.com and PhotoshopForums.com.
Congratulations Patrick and thank you Slashdot!
