If you are a NGO or a non-profit organization, your reference point for anything that relates to effective communication online should be Beth Kanter.
In the presentation / discussion she facilitated yesterday in San Francisco she illustrated the why, how and the key benefits that content curation can bring to any organization.
She writes: "Content curation can empower us to learn more and use that knowledge to get deeper impact for our nonprofit’s programs.
We can no longer afford to get distracted by the volume of information flying past us."
