Why we’re not friends anymore: the nptech echo chamber

Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology

I did a kind of radical experiment a couple of weeks ago: I de-friended almost all of my nptech and client Facebook friends (cutting my friend count by more than 60%). Now of course it used to be that all of my Facebook “friends&# were other nptech early adopters. But around two years ago, a steady stream of my real friends started to come on, and then about 40% of my Facebook friends were non-nptech related. facebook nptech

Tagging on Twitter? #nptech

His point 5 is something that sounds like a dream come true to me to monitor Twitter for NpTech related items I know I'm not alone in finding it much easier to share information over Twitter than by blogging or tagging in a social bookmarking app. I can't figure out how to subscribe to the RSS feed for #nptech at hashtags. A few days ago, Amy Gahran and I exchanged some musings on social media tradeoffs.

NpTech Conference Call Notes

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

A key value of following the NpTech Tag stream, even though it is undifferiented is for finding or identifying patterns. There is a lot to be learned about our respective tagging behaviors and who contributes to the NpTech Tag stream and why. So, rather than have just a few folks filtering the nptech tag stream, to have some way to make the filtering social. A sort of "digg" for NpTech Tag items.
