What Is Member Engagement?


Member engagement happens when members interact with each other. Interaction includes posting or commenting on a blog, forum discussion, photo or video. It may take the form of becoming friends with another member, giving an audicance, feedback or comment. It’s all about participation. In this way member engagement is more than just social networking buzzwords. It's the difference between a successful Network and a stale Web site. It's what makes this social network, well, social. And it's about more than simply that people sign up a network like Overtone Music Network. Members who sign up once and then never come back — they block only the flow of this network.  It doesn't matter if there's 100 members or 100,000 members. What matters is the number of members who are truly engaged. Therefore: be a secret admirer  or one of the recent active members - there is only one point: Please show us that you are here and participate . A short feedback is appreciated if you prefer to be only a secret admirer of this site.  But  more than this we love to read your appreciation and estimation about featured  and shared member content.
