[Book Research] Quotes of Social Media Wisdom?
[tweetmeme] At the beginning of each chapter in my book (11 total) there will be a quote of wisdom from a nonprofit that speaks to content of that chapter. Then throughout the book, there will be approximately 20 more quotes of wisdom. If you have some wisdom to share with the nonprofit community, please post your quote below and if it fits, I’ll add it to the book.
As a guideline, I don’t need general quotes like:
Facebook is great. It transformed our online campaigns.
Twitter is all about listening.
The mobile Web is the brave new frontier.
Rather, I really need quotes that capture and communicate experience and wisdom, such as:
“Don’t be afraid to fail! We’ve done so many things in social media that flopped. We didn’t get discouraged; we learned from our mistakes and next time came back even stronger.”
– Carie Lewis, Director of Emerging Media, The Humane Society of the United States
Quotes on the big picture of social media and how it has transformed the Web and the nonprofit sector are appreciated. I also need specific quotes on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Flickr, Foursquare, blogging, and mobile technology (mobile websites, group texting, text-to-give).
If you work at a nonprofit and manage their social media and/or mobile technology campaigns, please post your quote in a comment below with your name, title, and organization. Please don’t be shy! If it makes the book, I’ll let you know. THANK YOU!
