Software with a purpose.

Fora is a software tool designed to increase community activity on social media channels such as Facebook & Twitter, as well as in offline contexts.

Get more from the communities you manage.

The people who follow you on social media or participate in your programming represent a community centered on your organization. This can be a powerful resource – but it’s hard to capture and sustain people’s attention. This is where Fora helps.

Our Approach

Fora is designed to enhance your current community management approach without adding more work. It does this by measuring how people engage with you on a variety of online and in-person channels, and letting you set activity goals and incentivize community members to meet them. The result is a simple but powerful tool that makes it easier and more rewarding to be part of your community.

Here’s How it Works

Connect

Link your organization’s social media accounts to Fora – you’ll get new information about community activity and be able to run engagement campaigns on the pages and groups you manage.

Measure

See who is most actively involved by looking at the Forascore, which measures each community member’s engagement with your social media pages and offline programming.

Activate

Run “carrot campaigns” which set goals for online and offline community activity over specified time periods, and incentivize users to reach them by offering substantive rewards to active participants.

Learn

Monitor Fora’s insight data to see who is most active, how communities respond to campaigns, where they are engaging, and what issues they are discussing.

Sustain

Try different campaigns and analyze the results of each. Learn as you go, and adapt your approach so that you figure out what motivates your community towards sustained activity.
