  • Stroke is a very intimidating and personal subject. While many stroke survivors don’t engage in social media, at least early in their recovery, their caregivers do reach out and share their experiences. By using search.twitter (formerly summize), we follow conversations about stroke. Looking at the comments on just a \"one at a time\" basis is good, but seeing a long string of messages is very insightful. We shared this \"trail\" back with our staff responsible for our stroke survivor and caregiver networks. From this very visible series of conversations, they were able to see for themselves how social media is a powerful way of communicating and sharing in these experiences and in being in the right place to provide support and resources to those in need. They are now developing a plan to put social media front and center to expand reach to those who might never come to us.Christian Caldwell & Kristi MillerAmerican Heart Assocation/American Stroke Association

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/lab2112/Once you've engaged people in conversations, the next step is to share your story or inspire your supporters to share their stories about your organization. Blogging, podcasting, photo sharing, or using videos takes a bit more investment of your time to create and maintain, and, if you are encouraging people to create their own stories about your organizations, there's a bit of community building involved, too. An easy way to start is to get others to tell your story, outreach to bloggers or searching through video and photo sharing sites for people who are already creating stories about your issue or organization (remember all the techniques we shared about listening?).

If you want to build an online community for knowledge or skill sharing, using social network tools like Ning or LinkedIN will help you get there. If you're looking to engage and inspire new supporters, setting up an organizational presence on one of the larger social networks like Facebook or MySpace is the best step. Finally, consider how you can mix in fundraising.
