One of the older categories of tools for community is forums. These can vary from self-hosted platforms you control yourself to popular online forums that your own community is part of or runs on. It’s a changing category too, with new entrants extending functionality beyond threaded conversations, to incorporate more community capabilities, and some have begun to make the leap to become broader, community management platforms.
We surveyed community builders about the tools they use to make community happen. The result is the Constellation Report which charts the current state of community tools. We compiled the key results into this Community Tools Index, so you can discover new options and make confident choices about your community tools stack.
