The role “community manager” can mean different things at different companies and the responsibilities for this role can often be conflated across different teams and areas of expertise. But how does this role translate across different continents and cultures?
In this episode of Community Signal, Patrick and Jean-Yves Lemesle discuss just that. Jean-Yves is an experienced social media and community manager and he shares how both of these areas of expertise, social media management and community management, came to have separate career trajectories in France. They also discuss:
- How Jean-Yves has built a career moving around Europe
- Why the number of people who speak a language can impact how successful you’ll be in community
- A prevailing lack of focus in many interest-based Facebook groups
