Digital communities are experiencing a boom. The concept is older than the hills. Using technology to reduce communication barriers can be powerful. I’m in awe when I think of how connecting with someone in Berlin is possible. I live in Jacksonville. How we interact, connect, and share information is changing at break neck pace.
is a gorgeous platform. A community where passion prevails. Users select communities to share content and engage with other users.
It’s similar to Facebook Groups, yet it’s wholly new. My first experience with Topick was a mixed bag. I was on the Topick
for 30 minutes before I was banned. Yep, banned. The story doesn’t end here.
I posted several links on Topick
. All resources reviewed in Education Hunt. It was my failed attempt consuming Topick
The links lacked detailed explanations. I posted in my community. I also shared links with other communities too. I was excited.
I committed a digital “my bad” moment. I should have familiarized myself better with the norms of the community. I didnt, and Topick
wasted little time correcting me.
This review isn’t a rail on Topick
. I’m not banging on Topick
for cutting me faster than a barber, which they did. In fact, their speed at banning me is why I’m inviting you to check out Topick.
A focused approach to sharing content is refreshing. It establishes a line in the dirt. A clear difference when comparing Topick
with Google+ or Facebook Groups. Topick wasn’t the first party I’ve been kicked out of. It was the first party I came back to with my tail tucked. I even asked for someone to let me come in from the cold.
I’m impressed with the response I received from Topick
. I emailed their team after realizing I was banned. I apologized. I received a personal response. By setting a high standard, Topick
communicates value to visitors. It allows for a discussion to develop. It clears the space of clutter, allowing a conversation maybe even a connection to blossom.
