For those who don’t understand how things like Twitter, Facebook, Friendfeed and blogs can help you get your message (be it an individual or a company/organization) let me give you a perfect example from yesterday.
Steve Lawson posted a blog entry on See Also trying to raise money to help the Louisville Free Public Library. Folks who subscribe to his RSS feed I’m sure saw this post, as well as those who searched and stumbled upon it that way but I love how we all jumped on this and spread the news.
My original Tweet:
Then my followers retweeted (thanks to them all for helping to spread the word):
My followers added their own original Tweets or retweeted other to spread the word:
gregschwartzWatching the h2o being poured out of our servers. Depressing.
beccalovesbooksReading about the Louisville Free Public Library and their damage from the rain. I wish there were something I could physically do to help!
And others I don’t even know got into the act
Steve reported today that $600 has already been raised (less than 24 hours after posting his blog entry). Thank you to all who helped spread the word and more importantly to those who contributed to a very worthy cause.
