Posts about LiveJournal
LiveJournal is a social network built around blogging. Users can "friend" one another and restrict some or all blog entries to their friends. Users can also join blogging communities built around particular topics.
In this presentation from the Democracy in Action Community Conference 2008, I talk about some of the successful approaches for nonprofits in using social networks like Facebook and MySpace, and social media like Flickr and YouTube. I give detailed examples of how the Genocide Intervention Network, where I served as director of communications and Internet strategy coordinator for four years, used social networking to achieve its goals in membership development, advocacy and fundraising.
