What makes a great group chat? I have some theories ( and working on a post) but would love other takes.

- everyone in the group feeling compelled to participate (rather than just a few active folks) - instant/quick feedback on ideas/posts from group members. Generates excitement + rapport.

I enjoy two kinds of group chats- 1. Where there's this inherent positive sum mindset - think the mentality of giving vs taking. So folks come forward with thoughts, ideas, and debate/discuss 2. Absurd fun and memes

limited number of people (less than 20), a personal connection of some sort (e.g. friends, community) a shared interest (e.g. sports)

the perfect mix of insightful, helpful, and funny content. A group of like-minded contributors, not lurkers, spiced up with the right touch of memes, makes it great

Density: the right amount of content, with a “Dunbar-ian number” of messages for every group size. Diversity: Unshared perspectives around a shared identity. Creates healthy friction & inertia. Dialogue: not how many messages there are, but how many back-and-forths. “Active chat state” is how we refer to it.

People giving more than they take (eg, shilling their own projects) Keeping it small; don’t let members just invite anyone in. Tight group lets members get to know each other, breeds trust, which leads to valuable conversation

Inviting people who all gel together well. And not inviting too many people. Sometimes too many cooks makes chaos.
