    Bernoff J. The POST method: a systematic approach to social strategy. In: Groundswell: How People with Social Technologies Are Changing Everything. December 11, 2007. Accessed September 1 , 2009.
  • People
    • Who are you trying to reach?
    • What do you know about how/if they use new media?
    • How can you find out more?
    • Don't start a social strategy until you understand the capabilities and preferences of your audience.
  • Objective
    • What do you want to accomplish with new media?
    • How does new media support your organization’s mission or communications plan?
    • Are you starting a program to get information from your target audiences, to educate or inform them, to exchange ideas, or to collaborate on projects? Decide on your objective before you decide on a technology. Consider how you’ll measure success.
  • Strategy
    • How does new media support your online strategy?
    • How will you get your organization to embrace your new media strategy?
    • Is there an “offline” component that you need to support/connect?
    • Strategy here means figuring out what will be different after you're done. Do you want a closer, two-way relationship with your best trainers or trainees? Do you want to get people talking about your program? Do you want a permanent focus group for testing new ideas and generating new ones? Imagine the endpoint and you'll know where to begin.
  • Technology
    • Technology: What tools best support your objectives and match your intended audience?
    • What do you have the capacity to implement?
    • A community. A wiki. A blog or several blogs. Once you know your people, objectives, and strategy, then you can decide with confidence.
