Lurkers are people too πŸ˜…

Updated September 2021

On thinking about designing communities with lurkers in mind.

As community builders, I feel like lurkers tend to raise insecurities within ourselves and frustrate the hell out of us. We strive for participation and engagement. We are often targetted with nothing but upwards trends in growth. We can feel like we are failing the community when lurkers don’t come out of the woodwork.
