  13. 13. “I call this historically new form of communication mass self-communication. It is mass communication because it can potentially reach a global audience, as in the posting of a video on YouTube, a blog with RSS links to a number of web sources, or a message to a massive e-mail list. At the same time, it is self-communication because the production of the message is self-generated…and the retrieval of specific messages or content from the World Wide Web and electronic communication networks is self-selected.”<br />Manuel Castells, Communication power <br />(New York, Oxford University Press)<br />Part 1<br />Part 2<br />Part 3<br />

  28. 28. “When it comes to SMS donations, I think a lot depends on the trigger, on how and when you ask people to donate – just having a shortcode donation number is not enough. One great example is a lunchtime concert we did at Lords Cricket Ground. A group of young people, wearing our t-shirt with the SMS donation number, played a concert during the lunch break. We raised £600 within 15 minutes.”<br />Jo Johnson, Digital Media Manger, LSO<br />

  30. 30. “We have been looking at the entirety of our digital communications recently, and we have realised that while we are not using many digital tools, our members are very tech savvy. For example, just under 30% of the people who read our monthly e-newsletter open it with an iPhone. This made developing an app for the iPhone an obvious choice.”<br />Sally Horrox, Director of Communications, NCT<br />

  32. 32. “It’s been great for increasing internal enthusiasm for Twitter. It was easy to organise, great fun, and just like holding our own 2 hour radio show. Twitter is great for making people who are not at an event feel included and enthused.”<br />Stuart Witts, Social Media Manager, Marie Curie Cancer Care<br />
