Dan Pallotta: The way we think about charity is dead wrong | Video on TED.com

Activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend -- not for what they get done.

Here Are Some Clear Business Uses For Pinterest

Here Are Some Clear Business Uses For Pinterest | Social media for charities | Scoop.it

In a recent article, we looked at some ways for businesses to increase sales with Pinterest. Since then, Pinterest has only catered to businesses even more, having launched some new tools and resources. Suffice it to say, the opportunities are blooming on this red hot social site, which also recently launched apps for iOS and Android.

Tess Giles Marshall's insight:

Pinterest is an interesting proposition for charities/nonprofits, including recruitment. This article makes some interesting suggestions about using the new secret boards to plan campaigns - they can be set up in secret then made public.

It's unfortunately that this can't, yet, happen the other way around - it would be helpful to take public boards to secret status when they've played their part, for later reinvention.

I'd like to see Pinterest give all its boards a Public/Secret switch - would be much easier all round and get past the current limitation on the number of secret boards.

The new Myspace: Social Media’s B-side?

The new Myspace: Social Media’s B-side? | Social media for charities | Scoop.it
Last week the Branded3 team took the opportunity to have a peek at the new and improved Myspace in an effort to ascertain as to whether or not sexy had in fact, been brought back.
Tess Giles Marshall's insight:

The revamped MySpace reviewed here. As ever, it's music-centred - I wonder how relevant that will make it to most nonprofits. A "Wait-and-seeSpace" perhaps.

Charlotte L Weitze's curator insight, March 11, 2013 4:43 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

Lindsey Weintraub at SocialMediaToday has a short but valuable guide to four key traits a good curator really needs to have.

 

From the ability to search and tap into sources that should not be what everyone else is looking at, to the ability to know in and out its chosen niche of interest and its players, the good content curator has an uncanny talent for scanning, selecting and triple-verifying anything potentially interesting before even considering showcasing in its selections.

 

Rightful. Good for anyone just starting out with curation. 7/10
