If your community doesn't wisely use and upgrade technology, your community will stay behind in the league.
We all have already seen youth<>community bondings going lower each day. Asking the most important question, how can we engage with the Millennials?
You could say though that there is a set of 4 emerging technologies with the most potential to profoundly affect Communities; the ABCD of emerging technology —could be considered the alphabet of the future.
The four altogether become a strong enabler for Digital. Digital interactions, digital products, digital claims, everything digital. Digital becoming important to meet the expectations of customers that want Communities to be simple, right now, as I want it, when I want it, and relevant to me. On the other hand, many consumers are still not being attracted by Community; creating a protection gap. Digital comes as a possible response to close this gap, and in the process has the ability to profoundly change community as we know it.
But amidst the excitement surrounding these technologies, it’s also important to acknowledge that they aren’t a silver bullet. Ultimately, for technology to make an impact, it must be designed and implemented with care.

Of the ABCD technologies, blockchain—strongly associated with cryptocurrencies—is perhaps the most hyped. “The biggest misconception is that [blockchain] is all about money, tokens and the current price of Bitcoin. But what I think is most interesting are the other applications being built around distributed ledgers, whether it’s smart contracts or alternative blockchains,”
