Forum One is one of the few research companies doing regular quality research on meaty topics in the online community space. I also really like Forum One’s model for releasing research reports. Around 6-9 months after each report is published, they open it up for the public to download.
Here are a few reports that you can download for free right now:
- Identity, Reputation & Ranking
- Online Community Revenue and ROI Techniques
- Marketing & Online Communities
Bill Johnston just posted a little more information about their research agenda on the Online Community Report blog if you are interested in learning more about their other reports. It’s well worth your time to subscribe to his blog to get updates on the latest research and events.
