Social media marketing is a two-way conversation. Companies and customers should be not only talking but also listening to one another. A community arises when more than two people talk about something. It can be small and ad hoc, or it can be sprawling. It doesn't have to be forums, though community management is certainly a part of it. It can be a Facebook group or a Twitter list or a blog with readers and commenters. Formality is up to the community and its members. The members can take the community in directions that the company never dreamed of. That kind of letting go can end up being a very good thing indeed.
