Social Networking

 

 

Description

Allows users to share content, photos, blogs, and a variety of other tools with a select set of colleagues or friends. Users can make their information available publicly, or can choose to share only with others whom they invite to join their personal networks. 

 

Uses and Potential Benefits

Allows users to find friends or colleagues with similar interests, exchange information and keep in touch.  Example: a grantee might use meetup.com to organize community meetings in a variety of geographic areas in the state they work. From our interviews, we did not learn of any successful uses of this tool by foundations or nonprofits. We did hear about some costly failures, however.

 

Examples of the Tool (Not exhaustive or vetted)

www.facebook.com

www.myspace.com
