Jumo – Social Media for Nonprofits?

Back in April I posted about a new social media platform, called Jumo, which was being created by one of Facebook’s founders to provide a social media tool to connect individuals with nonprofit organizations and social change.

On November 30, 2010 Jumo launched to the public. It went down shortly thereafter from the inundation of people trying to sign up. I wasn’t able to sign up on the opening day. The launch was timed with a media blitz including stories in the New York Times, Mashable, and Huffington Post.

Ross McCullouch from Glasgow, Scotland who focuses on nonprofits and technology, wrote a great blog post about his impressions of Jumo including the good, the bad and the ugly. The whole post is worth reading.
