Is the intention to discuss how communities communicate among themselves or more broadly?

For example, I would say that Wikimedia Australia primarily communicates with its members via email. But we do have a Facebook page, a twitter account and an Instagram account. AFAIK, we are not using the social media account to communicate among ourselves but to communicate with those external to our community (but since I don't read them, maybe they are trying to communicate with me as member and i just don't know it). Which do you want for the purposes of this survey? ~~~~

My intention is about communicating "among themselves", but to define "themselves" broadly – more like "within the overall Wikimedia movement" than within (or between) individual wiki communities. For example, I'd count your communication with any existing GLAM partner as "within the movement". I would probably not count communication with traditional grantmakers or prospective GLAM partners, but I'm open to being told that I'm wrong here.

Ultimately, I'd like you to Be Bold and add whatever you think might be relevant, informative, or interesting to some people. We can always talk about any specific addition later. (Also, just to be clear, it's okay to add links to public examples.)
