Creating Change in a Digital World Creating Change in a Digital World Presentation Transcript

  • Creating Change in a Digital World
  • I have an agenda.
  • 1. Collaboration is everything.
  • 2. Social media provides you with the tools for collaboration.
  • 3. You can do it: If you develop a practice.
  • 1. Collaboration is everything.
  • Let’s start with some assumptions:
  • There are people out there who are interested in our issues. (whether we know them or not)
  •  
  • Those people are active in our communities. (whether we help them or not)
  •  
  • We want to engage those interested and active people in our work. (whether we agree with them or not)
  •  
  •  
  • That’s the heart of collaboration: Engaging with interested and active people to create change.
  •  
  •  
  • “ Collaboration is a ... process where two or more people or organizations work together in an intersection of common goals ... by sharing knowledge, learning and building consensus.
  • “ Most collaboration requires leadership , although the form of leadership can be social leadership within a decentralized ... group.
  • “ In particular, teams that work collaboratively can obtain greater resources, recognition and reward when facing competition for finite resources.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collaboration
  • 2. Social media provides you with the tools for collaboration.
  • Facebook is better than you.
  • 8.6x the population of California http://www.facebook.com/press/info.php?statistics and http://www.census.gov/popest/estimates.html
  • 5 Billion minutes every day http://www.facebook.com/press/info.php?statistics and http://www.census.gov/popest/estimates.html
  • Twitter is better than you.

  • 7 Million in February, 2009 http://blog.nielsen.com/nielsenwire/online_mobile/twitters-tweet-smell-of-success
  • Don’t make it you against them.
  • People in 202 cities raised $250,000 for Charity: water http://www.charitywater.org/twestival/ and http://twestival.com/

      • Don’t get overwhelmed by the frantic energy of hype.
  •  
      • Instead, participate in the conversation.
      • It’s messy.
      • Start with organizational questions.
      • Public conversations?
