Much has been said recently about the new-ish job description for an online community builder - a person whose job it is to engage groups of people in ways other than face-to-face. But what if you are someone whose job has sort of slid into being an online community builder while you keep up with many other projects? How many hours do you spend developing communities? How many hours should you spend? When is it seriously time for another FTE?
These are all great questions and questions that I don't have answers to. Compensation-wise, it appears that official online community builders are doing relatively well and a report published in July 2008 provides some insight into those people currently identified as "online community builders."
