  • He discovered the secret of social media success: listening firstToyota coming out in support of the Hill-Terry bill that calls for substantially less aggressive fuel economy standards than the Senate bill that was passed last spring.
  • Set up a google group. Self-organized. Build a list of tags on both sides – pro/opposition.  (1) Shared listeningOpposition Research Listening to what they are saying, how they are saying it. -to discuss tweets-special language-action – asked other organizations to retweet -Social media call to discuss what they were each doing. Realized that none of the groups were doing anything effectively alone. We discovered that most of the groups didn’t know where to start. A lot them didn’t have Twitter, no idea what hash tags. We were starting at a basic level. 
  • Cultural Norms:Share blog post w/ 1-2 sentence summary and with an abbreviated URL – “we don’t have time to read the whole blog post – just send us the kernelSend a tweet you want you want retweeted w/any #hashtagsDon’t send anything out to the list that isn’t a simple actionNo obligated List knows the expectations – tweet this, and it supports your work or not harmful –and don’t have to get permission internally – we didn’t retweet
  • During the summer, Verizon sponsored a festival event in WVA w/Hank WilliamsAnd at the last minute the event turned into a rally against the climate bill. They wrote a blog post asking Verizon to pull out of the event sponsorshipGot a lot of nasty comments, and traced where they were coming from
  • Discovered that someone has posted a link on the Verizon Fan PageDiscovered that their Fan Page wall was openSent this out to the list – asked for FB Fan Page bomb
  • In an hour, had filled the wall from advocate organizations and their networks – it would die down, and they’d fan the flames again 
  • don’t need to necessarily carve out additional time for professional learning because you’re probably doing it already through other channels.  The challenge is adding it your routine. It is difficult because you have to shift gears from your Outlook calendar, answering emails, meetings, or getting tasks done.   It’s a shift from a getting things done sort of productivity to social productivity. Or rather it is finding your social productivity sweet spot.Ask yourself how time you can allocate to listening for professional learning.   Is it a half-hour a day, an hour a day, or is an hour or two a week? The point is to get started, block out that time, and start paying yourself.Think about your current routine.   When does it make sense to integrate something new?    I do my social media listening for professional learning before email and after I’ve created my 3 things I must do today list.  I do it in the morning.  I know other people who do it right after lunch.
