I like Gautam Ghosh's definition of talent community quoted in this article:
Talent communities are where people go to connect with fellow professionals and learn. Hence they are more “communities of practice” than anything else.Talent communities are [also] places one goes to find experts.Talent communities are [also] places one goes to build their own personal career brand.Companies must engage in talent communities by letting [THEIR] internal experts connect with and build their own networks.The best Talent Community Facilitator would be an expert in the roles – not necessarily a recruiter.The focus on jobs/recruiting has to be secondary to the above.

There are a variety of social norms around talking about wages and salaries. It’s often considered rude to ask someone what they are paid, and this is sometimes true within workplaces. In fact some employers go so far as to not permit workers to share wage and salary information with each other. Employers would be banned from doing this by the Paycheck Fairness Act, which has failed to pass in congress twice. Is this a good idea?
Mike Ellsworth's insight:
OK, this seems like a restraint of free speech if Congress were to pass a law prohibiting employees from sharing their salary information with one another.
