The Power of Networks We
have now created a social network around our shared professional interests. This is what happens when we use online social networks – transparency helps create connections. The glue that holds them together is relationships. If international organizations understand the basic building blocks of social networks and apply to their work, they can achieve better results Image Source: Innonet
Networked International Organizations The FCO
encourages all staff to make full use of the opportunities offered by social media to help deliver FCO objectives. Social media . . . • Allows diplomats to monitor events, harvest information and identify key influencers. • Can assist in the consultation process and the formulation of policy by helping us crowd source ideas. • Provide real time channels to deliver our messages directly and influence beyond traditional audiences. • Improve the delivery of our services through closer engagement with our customers and allow us to better manage a crisis. • Make us more accountable and transparent through open dialogue.
Reflection: Share Pair and Popcorn
• How is your host organization leveraging the power of networks and social media for policy development? • What international organizations in your policy area do a great job using social media channels for news, stakeholder engagement and action, policy research, or other area?

put some focused attention into our strategy and practice. I’ve set some defined goals and areas where we might be able to leap to the next level. It isn’t realistic to jump in all of the categories.”
Module 2: Understanding Networks and
Networked Mindsets Networked Nonprofits are simple, agile, and transparent nonprofits. They are experts at using social media tools to make the world a better place. Networked Nonprofits first must “be” before they can “do.” For some nonprofits, it means changing the way they work. Others naturally work in a networked way so change isn’t as difficult.
A Network Mindset: A Leadership

Listening and cultivating organizational and professional networks to achieve the impact Leadership through active participation. Social Media Policy living document, all staff participate including leaders Sharing control of decision-making Communicating through a network model, rather than a broadcast model Data-Informed
Transparency Substantial: Providing information that
is truthful, complete, easy to understand & reliable Absence of Secrecy: Doesn’t leave out important but potentially damaging details, the org doesn’t obfuscate its data with jargon or confusion & the org is slow to provide data or only discloses data when required Source: Measuring the Networked Nonprofit Accountable: Forthcoming with bad news, admits mistakes, and provides both sides of a controversy Participation: Asks for feedback, involves others, takes the time to listen & is prompt in responding to requests for information

A Quick Network Primer What:
Social networks are collections of people and organizations who are connected to each other in different ways through common interests or affiliations. A network map visualize these connections. Online and offline. Why: If we understand the basic building blocks of social networks, and visually map them, we can leverage them for our work and organizations can leverage them for their campaigns. We bring in new people and resources and save time.

Chamipons USA for UNHCR raises
funds and awareness in the United States for the lifesaving work that more than 6,000 staffers of Genevabased UNHCR undertake for refugees around the world, 24/7. USA for UNHCR created the Blue Key campaign as a way to drive awareness of this global issue in the US. The blue key pin or pendant symbolizes the one thing most of us have and that refugees don’t: a key to their own home.
Champions The Blue Key site
was only launched in December 2010, and its social/digital aspects were relatively new, so there was not a lot of data to base KPIs on. Overall, when we went into the first phase of the campaign, we had two goals: to secure at least three Blue Key Champions, and to get 6,000 keys ordered between May 9 and June 20 (World Refugee Day). These goals were important to USA for UNHCR first, because the entire Blue Key campaign revolves around more people purchasing keys, and second, because with a limited budget for traditional outreach, we relied on willing bloggers to help us get the word out.
