Net2 Think Tank: Offline Events and Online Campaigns
Coming out of the N2Y4 Conference, I've had a chance to talk and connect with many people offline that I've previously only know as avatars, screen names or email addresses. It was a great experience to be able to reach out and shake someone's hand. There are also many groups and organizations now focusing on how they can best combine online and offline interactions or opportunities to take action. And that's the focus of this month's Net2 Think Tank!
How do real-world (offline) events fit into social media conversations and campaigns?
Has your organization tried a Flickr campaign - did those photos ever move offline? Are you working to change legislation - have you tried letting people sign a petition both on and offline? What about Twitter - Has your organization considered a real world "tweetup" to bring your community together"? Allen Gunn of Aspiration focused on the on and offline element of conferences recently in his Huffington Post article about N2Y4. What opportunities have you found for balancing offline and online events?
