In short, an administrator is someone who helps to manage and provide support for an online community. Depending on the size of your digital community, you could have multiple administrators who have their own responsibilities.

Since administrators have complete control over all parts of the group, it’s important to define the responsibilities of your administrators. Here’s a look at some of the most common tasks for online administrators:

Create rules on who can join the online community
Assign roles to other community members
Lead discussions on the platform
Establish new boards and community spaces
Publish community-wide announcements
It’s important to note that the tasks above are just a small sample of the role administrators play in helping an online community be successful.
