Just a clarifying note - this post, while on my feed, was written by our new parter at The Community Roundtable, Ayelet Baron (@ayeletb on Twitter)
Those are great qualities and definitions for community managers!

Thanks Robin. I love getting a ha moments that hit like a brick. This was one of them. It's a bit counter-inuitive because so much of the roles is similar and yet the behavior difference between good social media managers and good community managers is quite different.
Hi Ken -
Glad this is useful - if you click through to the original post it is actually a form for job seekers to fill out but we hope it also provides some guidelines as to what typical skills make up the community management position. Keep in mind that this does not include attributes that are as equally critical to the hiring decision (but we did not include on the form since self-assessments in this area are a bit challenging). Amber Naslund has a great complimentary post on this topic here.
Thanks Heather - this is definitely something that effects B2C and B2B but often in slightly different ways. The volume of feedback and variability in consumer environments is much higher so the tools and techniques of incorporating real-time input into business processes is different - as is the type of relationship the organization is looking to achieve.
How do you indicate presence online without saying anything (feels like everything has been said already today) " "?!?
