Many do not think about the role of online managers in society. The work of these people usually remains out of sight. They practically do not hear words of gratitude, and popularity and fame bypasses them. The founders of the Community Manager Appreciation Day tried to convey the importance of the profession to the world community and prove its importance in life.
The need for online managers arose in the early 90s. The growth in popularity of role-playing computer games has led to the fact that people were needed to lead groups of gamers and monitor the process.
The proposal to introduce a Community Manager Appreciation Day came from an industry analyst named Jeremy Ouyang. His initiative was immediately supported by colleagues. The holiday was first held in the USA in 2010. A year later, online managers from other countries joined the celebration and it turned into an international one.
The holiday is celebrated on a special scale in large cities, where businesses focused on social media resources are developed. Various events, online conferences, informal meetings are organized for community managers. At conferences, people of this profession share their experience, talk about innovations in the digital media industry.
