2,920 crowdsourcing and crowdfunding sites
Crowdsourcing.org is constantly improving and growing, and so is our social media presence.
If you haven't yet joined the discussions taking place across the various communities, check out the different ways you can get involved.
We recently created two communities on Google+, one for crowdsourcing and the other for crowdfunding. They’ve gotten great traction thus far, and we want to keep our followers on there engaged and participating in discussions about the latest and most important stories. And don’t forget to check out our main Google+ page here – we update it often and keep our ear to the ground in order to find the latest stories.
We also have an active presence on LinkedIn – our Crowdsourcing.org group has several hundred members and our contributors and staff share insights across other groups focused on the crowdsourcing and crowdfunding industries.
Don’t forget that you can also subscribe to our weekly podcast The Crowded Room on iTunes. In it, Crowdsourcing.org editors Eric Blattberg, Eric Mack, and Anton Root discuss the latest crowdsourcing and crowdfunding news, and often feature interviews with industry leaders to bring our audience insights from the insiders themselves.
Don’t forget that we find many of the stories for that podcast by looking through the user-submitted content stream. So if you have a story or project you’d like us to talk about on the podcast, we encourage you to upload it by hitting the bright green +Content button at the very top of the page.
We’ve also recently passed 13,000 followers on Twitter and are fast approaching 6,000 likes on Facebook. We have seen some great conversation on these platforms, especially the latter, and we encourage everyone to join the discussion there, as well as across all other social media sites. If you want to make sure you’re not missing any of the latest stories on Facebook, make sure to check off ‘Get Notifications’ on our page once you’ve liked it.
Ours being a crowdsourcing site, we wish to recognize and thank our readers and community members for sharing and discussing our stories across social media, as well as in the comments on our site. We ask all of you to keep sharing and discussing our stories, especially on sites like Reddit, StumbleUpon, Fark, Slashdot, and others where the discussion about crowdsourcing and crowdfunding has yet to take off.
In short: a big thank you to our readers who have already joined the discussion! Those who haven’t yet had a chance to do so, make sure to follow, subscribe, add, share, like (or do whatever else necessary), to stay up to date on the latest news about crowdsourcing and crowdfunding.
