The Hive Index
A directory of online communities
We believe that all who want to surround themselves with community should be able to do so.
This website is a free resource for professionals, creatives, students, teachers, entrepreneurs, and those that are just looking for some likeminded souls to hang out with.
With your help, this list of communities & topics can keep growing. If you know of a good community that's not listed, submit it. If you'd like a new topic curated, let us know.
Thanks, and welcome to the Hive Index.
