Social Net

Facebook Twitter

Originally this pearl was to hold a few sites that were for “social networking” like Facebook.

However social networking is far more than simply keeping in touch with old friends, connecting with other professionals in your field. or following your favourite "icon".
It is sharing your experiences with others of like mind. Sharing experiences, finding and sharing blogs, photos, television shows, movies, restaurants, software, travel etc.
This team pearl has grown to encompass all the above and others I haven't though of. The list could become very large hence I have broken down the sites by type. drewc Apr 16

Social Media Resources

Problem Statement A great range of resources exist to inform software selection, use and support in NPOs and NGOs, but they are not well connected, and rarely share common formats or metadata. To date, there is no place for comprehensively mapping the full range of "what's out there" and "who's using what", and in turn aggregating relevant information for tools and categories of tools.

bebo Bebo was founded in 2005 by husband and wife - Michael & Xochi Birch. It grew into the 3rd largest social network in the world and indeed - fun times were had. They sold the company in 2008 to AOL for $850M and celebrated with a victory pint. Over the years, the website faded away, until last year the original founders decided to buy Bebo back for $1 million, and began brainstorming ways to re-invent it into something fresh. In 2014, we will be launching 3 apps, each has its own name, style, and purpose - but all are made by Bebo. The first app, Blab - video walkie talkie - is available in the app store for iPhone!
