Audience engagement brings content to life and is the foundation of an active online community. We know that an active community can be a publisher's greatest asset. Disqus helps publishers of all shapes and sizes build, grow, and keep their communities engaged. Today we want to highlight one of our favorite online communities-- Grok Nation!

Grok Nation is an online community for all people to dive deep into conversations on contemporary issues with engagement powered by Disqus. Grok Nation presents topics in a fun, easy, relatable and unapologetically nerdy way.

Grok Nation aims to motivate readers to engage in online conversations that lead to offline action, mobilizing individuals toward changing the world as a community. Grok Nation fosters a collective online community in a way that many women’s lifestyle sites no longer do!

And if you’re anything like me, you may be wondering what the word grok means, and I happen to have the answer! The phrase means to understand in a profound manner, a term that comes from the 1961 science-fiction novel Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein.
