As of Friday, I am no longer the Community Manager at PicApp. While the idea of the job was amazing, the end result just didn’t fit what I was looking for. I still think PicApp is a great product, and I wish them all the success in the world, but I felt more like another marketing arm for the company than a true community manager.
In the end, I felt that I wasn’t able to continue to work towards my personal goals with regards to networking, building my reputation and brand, while also doing what was required of me at PicApp.
I really believe that a lot of my issues probably stem from misunderstandings and communication issues that come with working remotely for a company with strong goals, and a very talented team. Even though I was only there a short time, I already know that I am going to miss their energy, determination and drive.
I know that in the future bloggers will be hearing much more from PicApp, and also from me.
