Ministers urged to halt right-to-buy scheme | Society | The Guardian
More than 40% of former council homes now rented out by private landlords [...] In Ealing, the council has spent £107m buying back 516 former council properties that it had originally sold for £16m. Peter Mason, Ealing’s cabinet member for housing, said the report highlighted “exactly some of the more unforgivable impacts of Thatcher’s right-to-buy scheme, which she launched with great fanfare in Northolt [a town in the borough of Ealing]”.

A Hard Dose Of Data-Driven Reality About Online Communities | FeverBee

““Communications tools don’t get socially interesting until they get technologically boring.”” Clay Shirky, as quoted in
A Hard Dose Of Data-Driven Reality About Online Communities
November 5, 2013
By Richard Millington
Full quote is,
“Second, communities are boring. This is a good thing. As Clay Shirkey wrote; “Communications tools don't get socially interesting until they get technologically boring" We're over the hype plateau now. Communities are an available tool to achieve specific, measurable, goals. Organizations will need community professionals to use this tool.”
Contrary to common perception, the popularity of online communities has declined.

It peaked in April 2004. [There’s a graph]

This is partially attributable to the rise of social media.

As social media grew, the popularity of online communities dropped…at least a little. Companies that might've created communities are, for better or worse, now building Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Forums have declined too.
