What is a social media community and can it be nurtured? These are just a couple of the ideas that we discussed on CMAD 2015.The Community Manager Appreciation Day 2015 event took place in January and I was part of a fantastic panel Google+ Hangout with Yann Gourvennec, Joanne Jacobs, Andrew Gerrard, Stéphane Lapeyrade and Edward Saperia.

We talked about what social media communities are to us, how (or if) they can be managed, B2B and B2C differences and a number of other topics. The panel has a huge amount of experience between us both in different sectors (B2B, B2C, political and social) and countries including Australia, France, the UK and the US.
