Your Organization will grow with a social media plan

Tag Archives: questions

I have always had a soft spot for organizations that take a “disruptive” approach towards making the world a better place.

These organizations are “disruptive” because they take the status-quo and say “yes this may be the case now but what if?”

I came across the Right Question Institute and as I read through their mission I was impressed with the ability for an organization to look at an established system the school system and ask what if: “students asked questions in class, and teachers helped students become critical thinkers through questions and answers not based on some testing model.

Please check out http://www.rightquestion.org/ their mission

The Right Question Institute (RQI) has a two-fold mission:

  • To develop and disseminate innovative methods that all people – no matter their literacy or educational level – can use to advocate for themselves and participate more effectively in decision-making processes that affect them.
  • To promote the idea of Microdemocracy as a new starting point for democratic action.

It may spark some questions of your own and if it does add them to your list of organizations to watch.

Happy Reading,

Social media is a growing and changing landscape. It wasn’t to long ago that social media meant Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook (for the brave). But sometimes you have specific questions and you are the only person in your organization with the tech savvy to learn social media or you have been appointed to become the social media guru. Where do you go when you have questions about social media, organizations and how to create an effective campaign?

Maybe you want to learn how to create a Page on Facebook, or you want to learn how to drive more visitors to your website.

Maybe you keep hearing people ask you how sticky is your blog/website and you wonder why do people care about chewing gum?

With only 24 hours in a day (and the human like tendency to need rest) sometimes it feels like no matter how much you know, there is always a missing piece, link or site you feel you should know about and you feel lost.

For those of you who turn to Google as your first choice, you are off to a good start. Google, Yahoo!, Bing, About.com are all great general resources but when you want to get super specific and you need an answer to a question some websites can make the difference between getting the answer you need now or wading through pages and links before you get completely confused.

Quora.com is a great website for not only asking questions but reading through existing question and answers. The site has developed a strong fan base of subject matter experts who have a wide range of knowledge and interest.

I encourage you to check out http://www.quora.com/

Happy reading.

P.S. Remember the only dumb questions are the one we don’t ask
