Great Ideas for Online Organizing... Thank You, Britt Bravo!
Britt Bravo, author of the terrific blog "Have Fun, Do Good," recently published the following examples of people and organizations using services like those offered here on PulseWire to organize and implement positive change. Check out some of her suggestions below and if you have the time, do read the whole article... especially if you're new to social media: http://havefundogood.blogspot.com/2007/10/four-steps-to-ease-you-into-so....
Questions? Feedback? Someone you think we should include in this discussion? Post your thoughts below!
Now that you've joined and participated, you're ready to create your own citizen media and/or your own campaign like:
• Green LA Girl's Starbuck's Challenge (http://greenlagirl.com/2006/05/01/starbucks-challenge-40/)
• Beth Kanter's fundraisers using ChipIn and Facebook to send a Cambodian orphan to college.
• Alex Bookbinder's Support the Monks Protest in Burma Facebook group (It was started in September and as of this writing has 426,505 members!)
You can also create a free or low cost web site for your campaign or small organization with a blog, like Drilling Santa Fe (http://drillingsantafe.blogspot.com/) and Urban Sprouts (http://urbansprouts.blogspot.com/) did.
If you aren't sure how to do something, Google it! That's how I started my blog, by Googling, "How to start a blog."
