Community cannot for long feed on itself; it can only flourish with the coming of others from beyond, their unknown and undiscovered brothers.

– Howard Thurman

Not to long ago I was able to participate in a #CMGRHangout on Privacy on Communities.

Privacy is a real concern in the community industry. From general safety of both community members and community managers to specific concerns with legal acts such as Children’s Online Privacy Protection (COPPA), the EU “Right to Be Forgotten” and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), there is much to be aware of both with your platform and your language.
