Telling a story using social media: Webinar Notes

Today was the last webinar leading up to the Blandin Broadband conference later this month (Nov 18-19). I’m posting the presentation, link and questions from the webinar. I’ll add the audio when I can. (Audio now online – link on right side of page.)

I was the presenter. I want to thank everyone for their kind attention and help. I was nervous! We heard from a few social media users and had some great questions – especially about what social media tools work with limited broadband. You can get a good summary from Twitter #mnbb09 (the link will only be good for a while, until new Tweets on the conference replace the old). I was delighted to see that a few folks start Tweeting about the session.

Questions:

What are rural nonprofit organizations using?

Take a look at Main Street Project. Also check out the Minnosota Voices Online group. You can check out the members and/or past conversation. Folks there have been talking about their projects – mostly in rural areas. And we did a (very unscientific) survey of use: https://blandinonbroadband.org/2009/09/12/rural-use-of-social-media/
