DiMauro is the CEO of Leader Networks, a US-based organisation that helps businesses create social strategies. She has 20 years of social business leadership positions and has been listed in a top 40 social marketing masters by Forbes.

She has compiled an extensive list of knowledge that has been developed during her time in this field, and put it together in a long list of useful tips.

Some of this knowledge is fairly standard stuff, but there are some useful nuggets that can prove valuable when thinking about developing a community. Although this is focused on online communities, a lot can be applied to other types of community too (IRL, to use the lingo).

My only criticism is the layout – it would have been great if the items had been grouped by subject rather than a long list that becomes quite difficult to maintain.

How could you use this knowledge to develop communities as a change activist in health and care?
