Here is a storify of the top tweets, pics, links and comments from our Social Media for Good mini Barcamp held at the Mozilla London office.
You can also see a roundup at the Eppilogger page here:
This is an event for London Social Media Week that I am really pleased to be part of.
Connecting for Good workshop at London Social Media week Thurs 26 Sept 10am – 1pm
Facilitated by Barcamp Non Profits (@barcampnfp), a group dedicated to bringing barcamp style unconferences to the not for profit sector, this session is an informal round table discussion focussing on bringing people together for good - how can we use the platforms available to us – sharing success stories and failures and learning from both.
Social media has torn down the borders between countries but hasn’t yet torn down the silos between charities, brands and the digital industry. By bringing a mix of attendees together – this workshop will allow us to create sparks of innovation so we can find the next big thing/s for fundraising, campaigning and generally doing good in social media.
I created a Twitter list of my fellow facilitators and if you can’t make it you can follow the discussion with the hashtag #SMW4GOOD. I also set up an epilogger page to collect and collate photos, videos, links blogs and conversations from the event:
Other Social Media Week events
Still space left for this CSR one tonight that I am going to:
Expect an informative, thought provoking and inspiring session that will appeal to anyone in business, Not-for-Profit or charity sectors looking to understand how they can make a difference to people and planet through their business activity.
Any recommendations? Let me know what other events you are going to in the comments – hope to see you there
Had a super interesting conversation on twitter last week; it started from Lesley asking Matt a question about Buffer (the social media scheduling service) and quickly developed into a discussion into the use of, and even the integrity and value of using, these sorts of services. I grabbed all the tweets into this here Storify for you to read and I hope to pin down some of the contributors and you for a GoogleHangout round table discussion on the subject sometime in the next few weeks – please register your interest as a listener/ viewer/ contributor in the comments below

There’s no such thing as a “perfectly optimized” page, but this infographic from Moz is a great resource, it is just one of the graphics from this post:
The entire post is well worth a read – even if some of it goes too deep or over your head anyone writing web content would benefit, the graphics do wonders for explaining things that are often difficult to grasp and there are really useful summary points for key takeaways:
“One important takeaway from this post should be that modern on-page SEO is about juggling competing priorities. In general, my recommended ordering of those priorities is as follows:
Create a page that is uniquely valuable to your targeted searchers.
If at all possible, make the page likely to earn links and shares naturally (without needing to build links or prod people).
Balance keyword targeting with usability and user experience, but never ignore the critical elements like page titles, headlines, and body content at the least.”
This might be the shortest post ever – I just found this neat little web tool, it doesn’t do a great deal and it is not that sophisticated but it is useful and might be worth a favourite/ bookmark:
…essentially all it does is provide you with teh correct link to change that particular part of your account in the selected service – there’s no third party connection no need to sign into any of your accounts through this app – although obviously you will need to sign in to be able to actually change the info you want to change…
JustUnfollow.com is a twitter management tool.
The basic idea is to find out who is not following you back and cull them. It’s very simple, you just sign in with your Twitter account to get a list of all the offenders.
…so why does it matter if you are following someone who isn’t following you back?

Here is a list of twitter chats – the original post is aimed at Social Media and PR professionals and if you are running your charity’s blog and twitter or even just contributing the odd blog post then that is exactly what you are (even if you don’t get paid).
Some of these chats are well worth a look but being dominated in the US a lot of them happen at 2 in the morning, which is not ideal. I picked out these two as being particularly relevant to the third sector ~ and occurring at a sensible time of day:

I just had a quick look at this new Twitter client Plugio. First impressions are good, the interface is nice and plain, everything seems to be set out sensibly everything I expect is here and easy to get to, multiple accounts functionality, facebook integration too – and @mentions and DMs are in one column which is a nice touch.
I’ll do a more full review at a later date but the main thing to come out of my first look round was
I’ll be using Plugio for a week and report back the week after…
