Generating Social Currency through Facebook
Travis Warren, President, WhippleHill Communications; Board of Trustees, Proctor Academy
In Clay Shirky’s 2009 TED Talk he asserts that, “When technology becomes technically boring, it becomes socially interesting”. This concept of socially interesting technology is completely new for development offices. Your school has most likely created a Facebook page, but have you truly rethought cultivation and alumni relations around these new tools. This session will take an in depth look at a year old photo archive project at Proctor Academy (NH). Learn from their successes and failures, lots of examples and takeaways Topics covered: mashups, tags, folksonomies, crowdsourcing, Flickr and Facebook.
Travis Warren is the president and founder of WhippleHill in Bedford, NH. He is a graduate of Proctor Academy and attended Carnegie-Mellon in Pittsburgh.
