Hey, socialbrite.org is a new site focusing on the use of social media for social change, worth looking at!
young people and early adopters increasingly turn to the social Web not
only to socialize but to communicate, explore new ideas and share new
experiences, nonprofits and social change organizations are still
generally stuck in the top-down, one-way world of Web 1.0.
The young and the wired are moving at an accelerating pace away from
old-school destination Web sites and toward the social media ecosystem
embodied in the real-time Web. In this new world of Twitter and
Facebook, of citizen journalism and astonishing grassroots campaigns
like Twestival, it’s easy to feel befuddled by the dizzying pace of change.
