Making the Most of Social Media

Social media is a great tool for promoting new ideas... and "getting the message out"

 

Or so they say... But HOW TO USE IT?

 

Personally, I haven't thought much about it.

And so I found this podcast on Strong Towns a great intro to some new sites of which I was (blissfully?) unaware.

 

ST's Chuck Marohn interviews Steve Mouzon of Original Green "On Social Media"

 

MP3 : http://shoutengine.com/StrongTownsPodcast/StrongTownsPodcast-0194-steve-mouzon-4609.mp3

 

The Original Green, Steve Mouzon (twitter) joins Chuck this week to preview his upcoming event

-- New Media Workshop in Celebration, Florida -- and to swap tips on using social media for advocacy.

Some of the sites discussed in the podcast include:

 

Example: Klout measures "social media impact"

Original Green : 64%
Strong Towns- : 69%
=====
D.R. Bubb, on-twitter : 22% (I hardly use Twitter)

TWEETS : The most useful condensed messages?

Chuck Marohn has said that:

"It was a very useful exercise, my board asked me to condense the ST's message into just Six Tweets"

 

Here's what he came up with:

 

 

MISSION : TO SUPPORT A MODEL OF GROWTH THAT ALLOWS AMERICA'S CITIES,

TOWNS AND NEIGHBORHOODS TO BECOME FINANCIALLY STRONG AND RESILIENT.

 

For the United States to be a prosperous country, it must have strong cities, towns and neighborhoods. Enduring prosperity for our communities cannot be artificially created from the outside but must be built from within, incrementally over time. An America in transition must focus on developing strong, local communities, places where humanity’s creativity, compassion and spirit of collaboration can flourish.

As advocates for a strong America, we know the following to be true.

  • Financial solvency is a prerequisite for long term prosperity.

  • Land is the base resource from which community prosperity is built and sustained.

  • A transportation system is a means of creating prosperity in a community, not an end unto itself.

  • Job creation and economic growth are the results of a healthy local economy, not substitutes for one.

  • Local government is a platform for citizens to collaboratively build a prosperous place.

  • Strong Towns are made of strong citizens.
