Why join a small online community?
Harvard Business Review summed it up best in an article called Why Your Inner Circle Should Stay Small and How to Shrink It:
We live in a time when “bigger is better” is the prevailing assumption when it comes to, well, just about anything. So it’s only natural for us to want to supersize our network of connections — both online and off — because the more people we know, the greater our chances of being exposed to opportunities that may lead to professional advancement, potential mentors, material success, and so on. But in fact, being what we call a “superconnector” has nothing to do with supersizing your network. Rather, it’s about surrounding yourself with a carefully curated group of people who you admire and respect and with whom you share common beliefs and values — people who will set the tone for the foundation of your larger network filled with people who provide value to one another. And that core group should be a lot smaller than you think.
In summary: Why do people join the UXIC?
To share experiences in a safe space and learn from the mistakes or successes of others in your industry or other industries. To perfect your skills. To give your team new energy, ideas, and practices. To get a very personalized and informal introduction or re-introduction to topics that often go undernoticed.
