Transforming ideas into action at Giving RoomNing Network Spotlight
GivingRoom.com is a social network where nonprofits and the people who support them come together to do good and keep up with businesses that are making a difference in the community. Thanks to a simple getting started guide on the main page of GivingRoom, new members know exactly how to get going on the social network. A list of simple calls to action placed inside a text box makes it clear how members can get involved. This is a great use of a text box, one of the most flexible features on any social network on Ning.
GivingRoom’s suggestions include joining a group or “cause”, creating a group, and posting charity events. They’ve also made it easy to support GivingRoom by adding a Shop tab to the social network’s navigation, with information on featured websites. As we wrote earlier today, adding a Shop tab is a fast and easy way to add an online store to your social network.
