It is always interesting to put so much effort into a project and feel that you know it backwards and forwards and then have someone else come along and give their take on it. Sometimes that take matches your own but more often than not their fresh eyes have seen things that you may not have.
The 2012 State of Community Management report was a labor of love for The Community Roundtable team. We enjoyed putting it together and we enjoyed getting to talk with our TheCR Network members about what we’ve all learned together in the last year and we liked reaching out to the industry and getting their perspective. And it seems you enjoy it, too with over 5,000 views since release.
Here are some of the great insights others have taken away from this year’s report:

Thanks also to Edelman Digital, emoderation and Social Business News for posting about it on their blogs.
We’d love to hear what you think. Have you read it through or do you digest it in smaller bites? What have you taken away from the report?
