You know Twitter, Facebook, Quora, etc. aren’t are community building tools, not community in and of themselves.  You teach your friends how to use them, convince them why they are important and would be teaching us a thing or two about them. You probably have more followers than we do. But you also analyze. You realize you need to see the numbers to know what’s working; you’re blind without them. You’re obsessed with entrepreneurship.

too bad there are no postings for freelance community moderators


FounderDating is an awful company - I had a phone interview with the CEO for the comm mgr role, and the first time she forgot about the call...the second time she called 15 minutes late after I had to remind her again, and then after a loooong conversation about all the high-level stuff she wanted for the role, told me the salary was $40k. These days, that's even below entry-level. Absurd. And I'm senior-level, having managed global teams of community managers, which she already knew from my resume. Way to waste my time.

I've also seen complaints from friends who tried to sign up for the company, but they won't let you unless you get friends to "vouch" for you, only they don't tell you that you have to give over your credit card info before you even get the 10 days of "free" access. Spammy. 


Check out this opening I'm hiring for as well in NYC -

If you're passionate about health and fitness, and want to help be the voice of three major sports nutrition brands (Cellucor, Neon Sport, and Royal Sport) with a combined following of nearly 500,000, this is your shot! You'll be working with an amazing team and company to support you, while playing a major role in the social media strategy moving forward. Looking for someone with 0-2 years experience. Thanks!
