Where can your community members find each other and collaborate? Most projects use one or more of the following:
Discord is among the most popular social platforms in crypto. It allows users to create free, invite-only servers for their communities.

Telegram is a popular messaging application for mobile and desktop. This is great option if you need a simple tool for real-time chat or to make announcements to your community. Telegram also has an extensive API which you can use for bots or other automations.
