Social media has changed the world. It has even changed how we facilitate change.
Social learning tools and social learning management systems (LMS) have gained popularity in the workplace (Businesses Benefit from the Growing Popularity of Social Media).
Schools have seen the value of incorporating more engaged, online learning tools that leverage social media.
Our lives have changed to incorporate social media more and more everyday. It may even be the savior of the sluggish US economy (Social Media Could Add $1.3 Trillion to the Economy).
But, surprisingly, social media has allowed individuals more power and resources for less cost to enact social change. The ability to support, promote and establish coordinated efforts to support whatever cause keeps you awake at night is more readily available than ever. Here is an infographic from TheBestColleges.org highlighting that fact more clearly:
Do you currently connect with the cause or organization that you feel strongly about? Are you changing the world with the help of social media? I bet that you are.
Maybe you can start by adding social learning technology within your organization to allow employees, volunteers, members, supports and just about everyone else to connect and collaborate easily.
Many organizations have already started this effort (Social Learning Management and Nonprofits). By leveraging easy to use social learning tools, organizations lay the framework to effectively grow and manage their efforts.
One such tool that is available without annoying per user fees is the social learning management system (LMS), TOPYX®. With award-winning social learning features and dedicated customer support, TOPYX is worth reviewing if you are getting ready to use a social learning management solution to change your corner of the world.
Social media will continue to grow and change how we live our lives, how we connect and how we bring change to the world. Are you ready?
