Our site is product support centric, around B2B enterprise products with proactive blog and TKB articles about not only our products, but industry trends.
It will be interesting to see what happens in our community. I suspect traffic will start to dwindle a bit as our customers run into changes in their companies. I've been keeping track of daily registrations and I've seen a marked downturn in the past week. Community traffic is remaining fairly steady though.
I think a lot depends on the economy in the next few months. Everything flows downhill and though our business doesn't deal directly with consumers, the businesses we do business with do. If the world goes into a recession, which looks likely, we'll definitely be affected.
As long as our customers keep running our products and have questions/issues, our community will continue to run.
@kgroneman thanks for posting, there's a lot of changes for business to deal with at the moment, and you're right when you say those changes may not be immediately clear, they may come further down the line and for some time yet.
Like you I'm intersted to see how it will truly impact communities, I suspect it will vary greatly from one to the next depending on the community objective and audience. I think it will also depend on how the end users access information today, many will already see community as the go to place for information, but the extended benefit of community is that those direct users, then transfer the knowledge they've gained onto others in their teams and business. So as many are changing their working model and working remotely from those indivuduals and teams they've historically leant on for support, you may see the audience size expand, as they no longer have that immediate connection with the knowledge gurus in the business.

Scheduling story for you...
20 years ago Del (my now husband) invited me out on a date for the upcoming Friday 26th June. My answer (knowing the pub he mentioned did not have a big screen).... 'No, England are playing'
Our first 'date' was on Friday June 26th 1998 at my place watching the match (England vs. Columbia) with beers & pizza and all our friends 😄
I learned that night, Del has a tendency to cheer on whoever our opposition is.
