Tell us a little more about your community and goals for it? I've been working with it for four years and can give you some insights. In my case, I'm scrapping it and moving to Wordpress + buddypress + discourse. Some of the issues I've had may...

I'm always looking for C-level execs in Tech to endorse the executive women in their network for private tech startup board service on TheBoardlist. It's a niche community, but so important to improve diversity in tech leadership. If you (or...

Data, automation, and AI are going to play more significant roles as we go forward. There's a lot of opportunities for specific community management tasks that are done manually today to be automated - the point of which shouldn't be to remove...

Slack or Telegram if your community is quite small. First adopters can be supported via instant messaging apps - it is much faster than making FB group. WhatsApp/Messenger if you prefer them.

I think that more and more communities will be supported via messengers.Why? Well, first of all, instant messaging is more realistic. Forums and groups in social networks represents the "broken" communications form which is not natural. It's the...

How to use Community Analytics

The Homepage

This is the homepage, this is where you will generally go to for the initial overview of your community. This is your daily starting point where you can check for any anomalies, read up on the latest posts and newest members, and click through to anything that catches your eye.

Other menu items

The homepage shows you the high level overview of your community.
The members overview is where you'd go if you want to find out how your members are doing.
The posts overview shows recent posts and threads, giving you a full overview on what's happening.
The charts show the trends in your community. They allow click-through to quickly zoom in on anomalies you might encounter.
Cohort Analysis
The cohort chart group users based on their join date. Allowing for very powerful comparisons between yearly quarters.
The leaderboard shows your topmost members/posts based on various criteria. It is under active development, if you have any feedback or ideas, please contact us!
Search allows you to find users and posts based on several categories, tags, cohorts and a free text search
Clicking the question mark provides you with a contextual help overlay.

Member types

Anyone who has a registered account in your community is considered a member. In Community Analytics there are several subtypes of members, most importantly participants and active members,

Active members

Those members that have contributed to your community in the past 28 days are considered active members. This is one of the best metrics of community health. More active members indicate that more and more people feel compelled to contribute.


People which have participated in your community at least once are called participants. While this is an important number to be aware of, Community Analytics cautions against using the total in daily reports, since this is mostly a vanity metric. It is better to report on active members and/or on new participants.

Inactive members

Participants that have not been active in the past 28 days are considered inactive.


A post is everything a member writes, e.g. comments, threads, replies, polls etc. Keeping an eye on the number of posts per week and the number of threads per week is good practice for a CM.

Lonely Posts

When a member posts something, and there is no one else in the thread with him, that thread is considered lonely. Try to keep the number of lonely posts low, since an unanswered question is unattractive for both the asker and any potential (new) visitors.

For a bit of a deep dive, you can consider having a look at the number of posts per member and the average number of posts in a thread.
