This is something that I have been thinking about more lately, and I really felt its effects last night that the monthly social media meetup at Molly Blooms.
The London social media scene took a while long while to take off. And it wasn’t that people weren’t technologically active, it just took a time for them become more social and engaging with each other.
I have been involved in the “scene” since the beginning (If you can pin point a specific time). I don’t say that to brag or to claim expertise in anything, but its the reason why I say the following.
I feel that I have a bigger responsibility to the community
Its a strange type of responsibility though: I feel like a party host that has to make sure that everyone is having a good time and is actively engaging other people at the “party”.
It really felt like that last night at the meetup, with our largest turnout ever, and many new people, I wanted to make sure that everyone felt comfortable and was enjoying themselves.
I like playing an active role in the community, but I think I need to better delineate my role in the fishbowl.
What about my readers? Do you ever get that feeling of responsibility that you don’t think you deserve and may not know what to do with it?
