There are a number of books that cover the theory, get seduced by the jargon and fall short of any helpful advice. This book isn't one of them. Thoughtfully presented with case studies and an impressive array of experts, you'll find yourself bookmarking pages and jotting down notes. I recommend this book to any NPO truly interested in effectively integrating social networking into their online marketing strategy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fundraising for People through Networking October 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book provides some good insights on utilizing social networks to maintain connections with people.

One things that was great about the book was also kind of distracting! The book was made up of the work of many different authors. Sometimes the difference in content delivery was a bit distracting!

4.0 out of 5 stars Web 1.0 Mindset Waving Web 2.0 Methods June 29, 2008
I've given this book four stars because if you want to leverage Web 2.0 methods to garner more money for your Web 1.0 "what we think best" programs, then this is the book for you.

In terms of actually creating empowered social networks where the non-profit is a facilitatator, connecting real people with micro-cash to real people with micro-needs, this book is so far back in time as to be next to useless.

Argh! This is the last gasp of the United Way/Red Cross "rip off as many as possible" so we can have our first class tickets and lifestyle and practice trickle down tax-free programs that "we the elite" decide.

There are web sites devoted to micro-connecting and micro-giving, I recommend that individuals avoid giving to any organization that does not offer open books and a complete menu of opportunities to earmark your gift for a specific need from a specific person or household. The animal and child chartities are a bit ahead of the game here, but even this can be disintermediated eventually.

I am reminded of two famous views:

"Criticize by Creating" from Machiavelo, adopted by the Flow Project.

Instead of trying to fix old systems, create new ones that displace them (paraphrase) from Buckminster Fuller.

I must disclose that recently Earth Intelligence Network sent 65 copies of its first book (the last one listed below, also free online) along with a letter of inquiry to the top foundations puporting to be addressing the ten high-level threats to humanity. We received back exactly two serious responses, six postcards blowing us off, and nothing at all from all the others.
