Notes on telling a story using social media


Today was the last webinar leading up to the Blandin Broadband conference later this month (Nov 18-19). I’m posting the presentation here, link and questions from the webinar. I’ll add the audio when I can.

I was the presenter. I want to thank everyone for their kind attention and help. I was nervous! We heard from a few social media users and had some great questions – especially about what social media tools work with limited broadband. You can get a good summary from Twitter#mnbb09 (the link will only be good for a while, until new Tweets on the conference replace the old). I was delighted to see that a few folks start Tweeting about the session.

Blandin on Broadband offers information on broadband use, access, and trends especially in rural Minnesota. Sponsored by the Blandin Foundation and their Broadband Initiative.


What are rural nonprofit organizations using?

Take a look at Main Street Project. Also check out the Minnosota Voices Online group. You can check out the members and/or past conversation. Folks there have been talking about their projects – mostly in rural areas. And we did a (very unscientific) survey of use:
