The function of a community manager is to build, manage and moderate online communities around a brand or company on the internet.

The beginning of social networks in about 1998 and their subsequent assimilation into the mainstream media has generated the need to be present in them whether as a freelancer or a business. If a company is not on the Internet this may lead to a significant loss of market share and customers. Moreover, just having a business profile in social media is not enough as you also have to maintain, manage and streamline it and respond to customers who use it.

It is against this background that the post of community manager has emerged, the professional whose mission is to use social media tools and instruments (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, etc.) to promote a company or brand, generate compelling content, create an image and attract customers.
