The Internet has been providing a social platform for people from all over the world for years now. Visiting various music-related forums and chat rooms was something I was really excited about back in the late 90’s.

Let’s move on to examine why you shouldn’t ignore the social aspect of your site and strongly consider growing a community around it.
Running a website oriented toward growing an online community, you want your audience to stay engaged and active. Developing excellent content – articles, videos, interviews – is your number one priority, however, you also have to provide space for the audience to express their reaction to what they read or saw.

This shouldn’t really come as a surprise because apparently, a neat, little real-time interaction widget has more applications than it may seem at first.
