  • Now that are computers and data can be connected via the Internet, we are witnessing a social layer – and it is challenging our assumptions of everything.
  • One of the most compelling aspects of social media is that your constituents are already organizing themselves. (a la Cluetrain) Social media is a way for orgs to not be completely left behind by their supporters.

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/good_day/110559381/The transformation begins with the tools but doesn’t end there. What fortifies the new age is the “social graph” – the connections between people that can be created or augmented and fostered by online social networking sites like Linked In, Facebook and MySpace. In addition, social media tools like blogs and online videos strengthen person-to-person connections in a way and at a speed we have not witnessed before. Individuals can now connect directly with one another to raise money, sign petitions, or provide social services directly to people in need instantly, inexpensively, globally.

  • It is also getting information about what to support … it’s rapid word of mouth
  • Did you remember that game where you would read your fortune and put the “in bed” at the end. Just add the phrase “with your friends” -- and it isn’t just purchase decisions, where to go on vacation, what movie, or where to eat.
  • he share of adult Internet users who have a profile on an online social network site has more than quadrupled since 2005, from 8% to 35%, according to a November–December 2008 Pew Internet & American Life Project survey. Pew said adults still make up the bulk of social networking site users. But younger online adults were much more likely than their older counterparts to use social networks, with three-quarters of those ages 18 to 24 using the sites, compared with just 7% of Internet users ages 65 and older.
