All this week for NTEN's WeAreMedia project, we've been focusing on the tools that let nonprofits share their story social media style! So, if you're like me and little bit behind this week, you can play catch up today and tommorrow by suggesting tips and tools for photosharing and videosharing. It won't take you long at all and you could win one of those cool t-shirts! (WE'll be announcing this week's winners late on Friday)
Photo Sharing tools are Internet sites where anyone can upload, share, and organize their digital photos with friends, family, colleagues, and the rest of the world. Photo sharing sites have many social networking features and with open API's can help you easily republish your photos in other places.
I've been a big fan of flickr and a collected many nonprofit examples and add-on tools for flickr over the past three or four years since I've been a flickr addict. Here's two places where you can help fill out the tool box:
- Flickr Add-On Tools: There must be hundreds of nifty third-party tools out there. I'd love to know which ones you think are the best tools that help make flickr efficient, effective, and fun for nonprofits.
- Other Photo Sharing Sites: Read/Write Web did a round up of other photo sharing sites. WHich ones have nonprofits been using?
Video Sharing are Internet sites where anyone can upload, share, and organize their video clips with friends, family, colleagues and the rest of the world. Video sharing sites have social networking features. Most offer functionality to easily link to and even embed the videos in other websites and blogs.
As Holly Ross noted the other day on the NTEN Blog, See3 put out a great set of videos on how to create and use videos in your nonprofit work. And YouTube has a new set of handy tip sheets. And of course the class resource, Free Vlog from Ryanne Hodson and Jay Dedman. Here's what need to add to the Video Sharing section:
- We have links to many video sharing sites, but we don't have a post or place that does a side-by-side feature comparision.
So, you have two days to go over to WeAreMedia - add some stuff - and you could win a t-shirt. What are you waiting for?
