Community Manager Appreciation Day (#CMAD) was much more than a happy lovefest for community managers everywhere. Yes, hugs, cake-eating and high-fiving was the norm. But it was also a day for thousands of conversations, loads of engagement and the creation and sharing of mounds of content. Let’s take a look at the stats.
How We’ve Grown
Community Manager Appreciation Day started three years ago by Jeremiah Owyang and in the past three years, the social media conversation has grown significantly.
On January 25, 2010 there were 535 social mentions. By the next year, January 24, 2011, conversations increased to 3,721. This year brought in 11,104 conversations.
For all three years, Twitter was the place to be to talk about Community Manager Appreciation Day.
Who’s Doing the Talking
The 25-34 year old age bracket dominated the conversation, followed by 35-44.
Major cities held the share of conversation. New York (my hometown) was the top spot for Community Manager Appreciation Day conversations followed by San Francisco and then London.
