Innovative, social web ways to do good

April 19, 2010

Mashable today has an excellent post about ‘9 ways to do good‘, it highlights great examples of new means for people to support causes using social media.  Examples range from location based apps through which one can ‘check-in’ and donate to a cause, outsourcing tasks to refugees and crowdsourced microtasks done through smartphones. These 9 examples show exactly why we love social media so —  it allows us to help people and support causes in brilliant, new ways.
