SKDR – This is the main diagram with the animation. On the next slide is the second level animation, which you may or may not want to use. In this graphic, the key ideas around the edge are the most important info. I think the circle should be formed by the arrows (rather than the whole thing sitting inside a circle. And measure should have 2 arrows coming off it – one that points back to goals and one that shoot off above goals to indicate the next round of planning. Also think we want the whole mess to animate in so the presenter can talk through the wheel. The ready set go wedges should be shaded subtly as that is the second level of info on the graphic. The level should animate in after the wheel is all assembled. Also in the design of the graphic – remember that we will need to create some kind of corresponding worksheet.
Google Alerts – most basic tool to allow you to spot topics of interest Establish searches in your twitter tools to also you to monitor conversations Technorati is an Internet search engine used to search blogs..

Needs some tips and/or examples following this slide – how will people know the answers to these questions. Thhis is overview of listening process
You don ’t have to use them all, but you don’t want other people using accounts with your names, and the easiest way to see what conversations are happening on each channel is to have an account, even if you’re not posting. And you’re not posting yet!
Can be a source of content for your own social media and/or newlsetter channels Pitch them to cover your work – tell stories of impact!
Exposure to their ~1300 fans Source of content for your own platforms give you donors a boost by helping them feel part of something larger Remember that like Google, facebook geo targets search results, so people are going to see locally relevant resources And note that targeted ads can be a fast & cheap way to build your fan base quickly
You can leverage their investment and pep up your web site by embedding video PSA – positive message for current & potential donors alike Pitch your stories of impact to be highlighted in future videos, and you get an awesome plug Legislator endorsements are a huge credibility boost for the sector – and your org by extension
Check out the lists they are following – great listening tool! Politicians, media, state agencies, etc Exposure to their followers Seems they might be hungry for content – tweet at them and they will likely share! Twitter is good for self-organizing stuff – eg lots of loosely affiliated people all doing the same thing Twitter is a mixed bag. BUT. One major benefit for some orgs: forced soundbites, concise language. Could be a great internal alignment tool around shorter messages Twitter has its own weird language. Can be intimidating. I am not a super user either. But I found this silly site really helpful: http://www.jhische.com/twitter/
SHANNON, CAN YOU ANIMATE THESE CONSECUTIVELY? 140 characters is more than you think. The Massachusetts historical society has been using Twitter to share entries from John Q. Adams ’s diary 200 years to the day after he wrote the entries– one per day, and almost all of them 140 characters. Booksin140 does Twitter book reviews… Matthew Carrozo wrote his autobiography in 240 tweets. Look at how much he ’s packing into each of these… Key point: you can fit a lot into twitter, and you shouldn ’t abbreviate everything to make your thought fit: No reason to look less intelligent because of the number of characters you’ve got to work with.
Look at the date on this tweet – do we need something fresher? And or an interesting tibit of our own content to brag? http://www.deannazandt.com/twitter-guides/

You are the media mogul now, the platforms are yours.
Dialog, conversations more valuable than one-way communications. It ’s really easy to say things in public – a public commons or rally of 10,000 people can be built in a virtual space with a little savvy and time at almost no cost.
You can ’t control but you can influence so set about aligning empowered voices, get all those megaphones working in the same direction
As in any good conversation, we all share control – it ’s an organic exchange. Control is shared by everyone who participates
These new tools are changing expectations. People expect you to share information, they expect to be able to engage with it and with you.
Water Fountain HackA fire hydrant used for December 1991 Building 26 fire hose drinking fountain hack. A play on the idea that getting an education at MIT is like "drinking from a fire hose." In 1991, a group of hackers managed to embody this common expression by turning a fire hydrant into a drinking fountain in front of the largest lecture hall on campus (26-100). The fire hydrant drinking fountain made its debut during the final week of classes for the fall term.
This presents an opportunity for your org!

Average american spends 2.3 hours a day in front of a computer. “ The average internet user spends more time on Facebook than on Google, Yahoo, YouTube, Microsoft Wikipedia and Amazon combined.” – Mashable
If you spend just 15 minutes of your screen time monkeying around on social media I guarantee you ’ll learn it. Heck, that’s just the commercial breaks while you watch TV on Hulu!

Frozen pea fund The Fund is a Breast Cancer fund raising program inspired by and in support of blogger Susan Reynold. To keep bleeding down & relieve pain I ’d need to keep things cool. Traditional ice packs are hard and heavy. As much as I try to be a good sport I’m not into having a brick sitting on my chest. Enter a bag of frozen peas.I tucked it in my bra, took a picture, and was ready to tell the story later that night. That bag of peas added a touch of lightness to what could have been a sad and serious tale.A bag of peas was something everybody could relate to.Some people love them, some hate them, some use them for their own injuries.A bag of frozen peas was a vehicle for conversation and let people tease me instead of having to cry.It let people share instead of bemoaning. Of course I shared it because what is life but a series of stories. The peas have prompted stories from others, and the line-up of twitter avatars sporting peas in support of my struggle are a comfort.
Started as a social media campaign, didn ’ t work, couldn ’ t figure out why. Realized: shared computers were a problem. School library. Mom ’ s laptop. Not a place to ask your deepest darkest sex ?s. But teens have phones!

Started with one video. Not a household name. but someone with a following. Took off. Launched a movement, an org, a book…why? Emotional, Personal. Effective. Engaging: encouraged participation and dialogue. Followed the new maxim “Self expression is the new entertainment.” . “I wish I could’ve talked to that kid for five minutes before he killed himself,” Dan recently said "It Gets Better" redirects here. For the book inspired by the project, see Gets Better is an Internet-based project founded by Dan Savage and his husband Terry Miller on September 21, 2010, in response to the suicide of Billy Lucas and a number of other teenagers who were bullied because they were gay or because their peers suspected that they were gay, such as Raymond Chase, Tyler Clementi, Ryan Halligan, Asher Brown, and Seth Walsh. Its goal is to prevent suicide among LGBT youth by having gay adults convey the message that these teens' lives will improve. The project has grown rapidly: over 200 videos were uploaded in the first week, and the project's YouTube channel reached the 650 video limit in the next week. The project is now organized on its own website, the It Gets Better Project, and includes more than 22,000 entries from people of all sexual orientations, including many celebrities. A book of essays from the project was released in March 2011.
Now everyone in the act – Prez Obama, even the SF Giants!

To date, the project has received submissions from celebrities, organizations, activists, politicians and media personalities, including President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Adam Lambert, Anne Hathaway, Colin Farrell, Matthew Morrison of "Glee", Joe Jonas, Joel Madden, Ke$ha, Sarah Silverman, Tim Gunn, Ellen DeGeneres, Suze Orman, the staffs of The Gap, Google, Facebook, Pixar, the Broadway community, and many more.

He is a regular contributor to PRI's "This American Life" and has been featured as a Real Time Reporter on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher."Dan heard about the suicides of Justin Aaberg and Billy Lucas and had a reaction so many LGBT adults had. “I wish I could’ve talked to that kid for five minutes before he killed himself,” Dan recently said. “I’d tell him that however bad it was in high school or middle school...it gets better.” The It Gets Better Project was born.Listen to Dan and his partner Terry talk about their stories and how the project came to be:
