Infographic: The 8 Different Hats of a Community Manager


For its 2012 "Community Manager Report," Social Fresh surveyed community managers and found that, aside from creating unique content and crafting a brand's voice, they're juggling several different roles throughout any given day:

  • Morning: They are detectives and cheerleaders, providing energy to their teams while sniffing out and solving customer service issues. 
  • Afternoon: They are therapists, translators and diplomats, apologizing for poor customer experiences; taking customer feedback and explaining it to the product team and delivering news in tough customer situations. 
  • Evening: They are the cowboy/cowgirls, analysts and authors in organizations, corraling customers (and colleagues) onto the same page on social channels; measuring engagement metrics and writing nonstop.  

And they are quite lengthy days at that. According to Social Fresh's infographic below, 26% of community managers spend more than 50 hours per week working on community management. 

Here's to you, community managers. May your many hats continue to serve your organizations well.
