Last updated January 25, 2011

Today, even the most buttoned up companies are scrambling to add community managers among its ranks. It is now one of the most sought after jobs out there. So thankful is the world to this new legion of workers, every fourth Monday in January celebrates Community Manager Appreciation Day, a sacred event since 2010.

GetSatisfaction thinks it has the answers. Check out this neat little infographic that aims to dig deeper into the minds of these 21st century cheerleaders.
