  • Increases ... Communication to Action is increased. Messages sent and opinion sought has potential to be highly responsive, if not instant. Widens ... For example a question asked or a website link you mention on Twitter will often be widely circulated (or ReTweeted) outside of your network to people you probably never dreamed would see it. If you campaign has an interesting message people will want to tell each other virally. Sometimes you need to get this message to a particular group of people some times you need to let as many people know as possible. Deepens ... On two levels as conversations are TWO-WAY and with people who WANT TO LISTEN. People have chosen to follow you and you have chosen to follow them. Ready made links.
  • Web 2.0 is a collection of tools, applications and changes in working practice that have enabled people in communities to become more connected, to network with their peers and to collectively campaign as force not possible before. It has enabled supporting organisations develop a new way of working with their members; getting the message to them faster by using new techniques (all the senses not just printed word) and has allowed members to directly comment on and influence the organisations direction. Social Media is a way of using tools and platforms running on the Internet to instantly collaborate, share information and experiences, or have a conversation ideas or causes we care about. It’s a world where anyone can be a publisher, a reporter, an artist, a filmmaker, a photographer or pundit …. even an activist or citizen philanthropist!
  • Social networks are a little like parties with conversations starting and stopping, relationships created and ideas and stories exchanged. This is potentially very powerful for a campaigner or fundraiser looking to make new contacts or get interest going. These networks are social, they’re about communicating and exchanging ideas they’re not a broadcast platform!

  • Generate ... An on-line “buzz” is created and people talk to each other and to you about your organisation or message. Joins ... Contacting key people directly or drumming up a ground swell of support so that one voice becomes many so that voice has more of chance of being heard. Its much easier to find like minded people. Networks still have to be developed, but its much easier to see who your peers are following or to search for your stakeholders and see what they are saying.

  • Facebook – become a fan of .... .... This is an example of an LIO using Facebook to bring together pictures and events and potentially to gain extra supporters who would not have found them otherwise. .... Also heard of a Kids organisation in Herefordshire who needed supporting statements and testimonies for a funding application. They set up a Facebook Group and in just 3 days got 49 statements for the bid from their friends and users of the organisation who were already on Facebook. Important point, as with all social media – don’t establish a presence on Facebook and then tell existing followers (or people you hope to interest) that they must get a Facebook account. This won’t work! Use Facebook (etc.) to connect with people who are already 100% conversant with the platform but who you’d like to target as followers. Also mention Bebo (aimed at a younger age group) and MySpace (very good for musicians)‏ LinkedIn (more professional business use)‏
