Today is a bit a whirlwind for me. I only had time for a quick dip into the social media and nonprofit stream and found a couple of hot conversations. Enjoy!
Why Non-Profits Are So Good at Social Media: Alexandra Samuel of Social Signal has a post over at the Harvard Business School that makes the case that nonprofits have a long history of relationship development and positions them well for social media success. She summarizes five key lessons from early adopters in the nonprofit sector. In the comment, there is a hearty debate going on about whether Alexandra's premise is spot on or not. What's your take?
Early Adoption: Not Just for Technology: Amy Sample Ward looks at Louis Gray's early adopter model and wonders if it can be applied to social change work. There's a lively discussion in the comments.
Change Native to the Digital World: Lucy Bernholz is for examples of social change organizations that are totally native to the digital world. They were created in and around digital tools and they use these tools to manage their work, communication, programs, fund development - everything. So, check out her list and if you know of organizations that should be on it, please add to it!
