  8. 8. Your Brand Online: Personal, Organizational & CauseSocial Media Overview Twitter What’s happening? All accounts are individual • There is only one kind of account with one user name & password • Because they are individual accounts, there is some sense that tweets are coming from an individual, but this is changing • There are services which will allow more than one person to use an account (and append initials, for example, at the end) • You can follow as many others as you like, and it’s not automatically reciprocated

  26. 26. Your Brand Online: Personal, Organizational & CauseBranding: On- and Off-line Does your cause have a brand identity? Causes may or may not have their own brand identity. Generally, if a “cause” has a well-defined brand identity it’s been the work of an organization who launched the brand. A good example of a cause’s brand identity is the pink representing Breast Cancer. This is such a universal phenomenon it can be found on everything from t-shirts to Kitchen Aid mixers. Most causes do not have such a strong brand identity. Causes that generate news also have a sort of brand perception (ie Hurricane Katrina, Earthquake in Haiti)
