How to Build a True Online Community

How do you “apply a little psychology” to tough jobs like building an online community and to creating a product that people will want to use frequently?

It’s important to realize the difference between having an audience and having a community. An audience is looking at you. You send them information and they react to the information.

It’s difficult to do and you can’t fake that. ~ Richard Millington
