Hi Beth
I actually work for a database company but I specialise in charities and I keep a close eye on what my clients are doing on the web. Last year I ran a seminar on social networking, we heard a great success story from one charity's use of MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/raceforlifemyspace), and it seemed ready to take off. Since then however, it seems to have stalled somewhat and one of the main arguments given by the 'its a crackpot idea' brigade is that the big sites are consumer sites for individuals, and the sites (FB, Bebo, etc) do not in theory allow organisations to have a presence. Many get round this my opening a page in their own name and then adding a application to it - but the bosses don't like this devious approach. Should charities be campaigning the big sites to be more open minded about charity-led pages or just more imaginative about how they get round the limitations?

Organizational commenting (participation) is rather difficult to accomplish. Our organization is in the midst of working on engaging clients/prospects within social media, but developing a coherent message has been somewhat challenging. I'm going to check out the links you provided and see what I can learn.

Thanks,
Shailesh
