The Social Website: Integrating Social Media into Website Design and Function

Organizations are increasingly engaging supporters through social media across a variety of networks such as Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare. However, there is also the exciting trend of organizations bringing the connections and conversations back to their web destinations to integrate their growing communities. This session will offer a unique combination of prepared case presentations and an interactive social website clinic.

In the first part of the session the presenters will showcase a collection of examples where social media/network outreach activities are integrated into the core websites of the organization. Each example will be presented and discussed by the co-presenters to share their thoughts on visual, experiential and strategic design decisions made as well as the technologies used to create them. In the second half of the session we will offer a “social site clinic” – opening the session up to attendees that want to volunteer their organization’s websites for discussion. During the clinic, the presenters and audience will evaluate the social integration of the website and consider (with the attendee) how to best integrate their community activities with the website to meet their organizational goals.

Debra Askanase will share her social media, community organizing, and business strategy experience in collaboration with the design and technology experience of Seth Giammanco to review cases and discuss the “social website” in this fun an informative session.
