Community Building

How can fan communities be nurtured without the social media/tech giants (especially Facebook) having ownership of them? There are multiple ways to do this other than just club nights, including fan forums, mailing lists, fan clubs, and special/one-off social events. ADE brings together some of the artists and managers who are currently exploring this alternative strategy to answer the big question: who owns your fanbase?
