Rosieland Roundup 143 — The real Slack conversations may be happening in the DMs

⛅️ Good day everyone!

The real Slack conversations may be happening in the DMs

Have you looked at your Slack analytics recently?  You might be surprised at what you find.

Of course, this will vary from community to community, but here is one such example from a very well established community Slack.

Messages sent in public channels: 31% Messages sent in private channels: 2% Messages sent in DMs: 67%

There are more DMs happening than conversations in the open channels. The beauty, or frustration of it is that we can't track it properly. As community builders we have no idea what is really being said.

We could choose to worry that maybe there are spammy messages going on behind the scenes. However, if you have a healthy community culture, these are normally reported and hopefully weeded out quickly.

I like to look at his with positivity: I believe people are probably finding ways to connect and chat in a deeper way. This is hopefully a sign of a healthy community.

👉 If you have a community Slack, I'd love if you could share what these stats look like for your community.
