James's curator insight, March 21, 2013 2:52 AM

Some interesting fact and stats about the effects of social media.

Could just be assumptions and made up if not for the references, worth investigating further for more accuracy.

 

Social media was a big step in extroversion and news, however it was a plummet in personal privacy. The integration of social media into everything is convenient, yes, but it leads one to believe using it to be mandatory to have because of all the disadvantages compared to using it.

 

Aside from privacy, the addiction to social media is extremely evident in the younger generation and often leads to online arguments, befriending complete strangers or even identity frauds.

Non Profit Websites: 10 Keys to Success | Vandelay Design

Non Profit Websites: 10 Keys to Success | Vandelay Design | Charities and Social Media | Scoop.it
Non profit organizations tend to have limited budgets and limited involvement from members for planning, designing and maintaining websites. This often results in a site that doesn't really achieve everything that it could for the organization and the people involved. In recent years there has been an increasing number of organizations that are doing great things with their websites and truly making them valuable and effective. In this article we'll look at the keys to an effective non-profit organization website, while showcasing some examples from specific sites. 1. Clear Description of the Organization's Mission/Purpose Many of the visitors that will be arriving at the website will not be familiar with the organization. Upon arriving, they should be able to quickly get an idea of why the organization exists and a basic picture of what they do. The full mission statement or purpose statement is sometimes part of an About Us page, but first time visitors to the home page should have an idea of why the organization exists without even visiting another page. The About Us page can of course provide more details, but visitors should not need to navigate through the site in order to understand the basic purpose of the organization. There are a number of different ways to help convey a message of mission or purpose on a home page. In some cases there will be a brief one or two sentence statement that is located in a prominent position. Photos and images can also help to communicate purpose.

A concise summary of the essential elements you need to have on your charity website. Sometimes we miss the basics and lose valuable connections as a result.

This tool measures the emotional value of your headlines in three areas:



  • Intellectual – Words which are especially effective when offering products and services that require reasoning or careful evaluation.
  • Empathetic – Words which resonate in with Empathetic impact often bring out profound and strong positive emotional reactions in people.
  • Spiritual – Words which have the strongest potential for influence and often appeal to people at a very deep emotional level.

To start using the Headline Analyzer, visit http://www.aminstitute.com/headline, enter your headline, select the type of business or industry to which the title belongs, and click the “Submit for analysis” button. You will then get your EMV score, with a short explanation of what it stands for.
