Google Community: Supporting Micro-communities within a broad audience

Google Community: Supporting Micro-communities within a broad audience

  • NEXT:

Description: At Social Media Week San Francisco in February, Google’s community team talked about scaling support to our large user base. Collaborating with users helps us have a wide reach, but we’re careful to stay relevant to our micro-communities, too. This time around, we’re delving into how we support our micro-communities while balancing the broader Google audience: through transparency, our super users, and real time, live interactions with our users.
