The start of great things often go unnoticed until many years later when those great things are held responsible for changing history. The birth of Skype Community was one of such a great things.
On 27th of June 2011 the Skype Community was created. This is the date the very first user Jay signed in as a member of our community. Two years later over 1 million people have registered to our site!
Hard to believe it’s been two years already! But what a great two years - filled with incredible challenges, exciting victories, and loads of fun!
At the very beginning, there was lots of uncertainly as to where the community would go. People questioned whether the world would really need a Skype Community (fortunately, our team knew the answer all along :) ).
Every day thousands of users sign in to Skype for the very first time. Although there is a knowledgebase, there will be always questions which can be discussed with more experienced users. Question vary from “How do I make a Skype call” to more technical ones. We wanted to unite all users in their Skype interest - give you a chance to help others where you have a bigger knowledge or experience with Skype.
We kicked off with a small number of users but we quickly grew as a community. And here we are, with a record number of accomplishments: new structure, 11 language communities, over 736.800 posts, 157.600 kudos, 11.500 accepted solutions and 2 Lithy awards for best in class community.
