A week ago we announced our new community "Original Content Decentralized" and we've had some great growth since then!
Already #2 in subscribers with 1674 posts of 413 unique posters!
Early bird gets the worm! It has of course also helped that we're a big community in general with over 1k unique users in our Discord server
Surprising how many were still not aware of the beta page of Steemit with communities included, if you're still one of them we urge you to check it out: https://beta.steemit.com/communities
Our community will continue to curate original content while incentivizing initiatives that help drive traffic to the Steem front-ends and help the ecosystem.
One being the #posh initiative where we give bigger votes for sharing your original content onto Twitter.
Remember to add one of these initiatives when posting in our community. We're still curating the #oc and #posh tag but we've been really excited with the community this past week and over time we will be shifting our focus more and more towards it.
We have a lot of new and fun initiatives and partnerships planned in the near future so stay tuned for that! :)
To give you a hint, one of them is about engagement which is something that Steem desperately needs right now and we think communities and some added gamification to that is the right step towards improving it along with some extra incentives since the new curve has kind of handicapped that aspect a bit.
What are your thoughts on communities so far?
