Help me understand this community
Hello everyone. My name is Matus Solcany and I study master of information design at Design Academy Eindhoven. I’m currently researching local online communities. I’m fascinated by yours since most of the online communities now moved to reddit or became facebook groups unlike this which is completely custom. I moved to Eindhoven only a month ago and this community let’s me see Eindhoven through the eyes of the local people.
I’m trying to understand communities like this better, if you have a few minutes to spare please answer some of my questions in either dutch or english:
- What is the biggest benefit of this community for you?
- Has DSE community affected your personal life in any way?
- What is the positive benefit the DSE community has on Eindhoven and surrounding area?
- What do you see as benefit of a local community against communities on sites like Facebook or Reddit?
- In what way does city of Eindhoven or national government support this community?
