‍

πŸ”Ž 3 Types of communities you can choose to build

‍

πŸ‘Ά A community is born when you identify the problem - the solution for which lies in bringing together people and enabling them to interact!

Siddharth Ram talks about 3 types of communities you can build:

  1. Communities of Interest - large number of people aligning on a common interest and expressing their intent.
  2. Communities of Learning - formed with a shared objective to learn something in common to upskill themselves or elevate their intellectual capabilities.
  3. Communities of Practice - formed with a shared objective to do a certain task or reach a common goal.
