There is a new social media tool coming out that aims to connect individuals with charities. It is called Jumo. Jumo is the brainchild of a co-founder of Facebook and mybarackobama.com alum Chris Hughes. His goal is to connect individuals with the social changes that interest them the most. They expect to go live in the Fall but are accepting email addresses for folks who are interested in learning more. Jumo will allow both individuals and organizations to have pages on the site.
I find the prospect of this intriguing. Will it cause a disruptive change for social good? Time will tell. Perhaps it will be the next Cuil. However, I have signed up to get more information and encourage you to do the same with the hopes that this can be more friendly to charities than Facebook has been.
