Today is the fourth annual Community Manager Appreciation Day, a nod to those that organize, manage and hype social channels for brands. As web strategist Jeremiah Owyang puts it, “while no gifts are required, the purpose is to give a genuine thank to the never ending, often thankless job of supporting customers and balancing internal stakeholders, a tough balance the whole world is watching.”
We’ve put together a list of five ways to celebrate. Have resources or celebrations to add? Share them in the comments section below.
