40 Internet-Based Social Businesses
From Good Cause Tweeting to Digital Literacy Agencies

While it’s arguable that social enterprises, non-profit organizations and charities have lagged behind when it comes to jumping on everything and anything web, these Internet-based social businesses prove that conception wrong.

This SocialBusiness.org top list shows that some Internet-based social businesses harness the power of social media and the web in order to further their message and impact—for the better.

From the good cause tweeting promoted by ‘beremedy’ to local food connectors like Sustaination and socially oriented job sites, these businesses push online shopping, social networking and general digital education in an effort to create positive social change.

When all things ethical and local seemed, once, to be relegated to a grassroots level, only time will tell what the consequences—positive or negative—will be when social businesses hit the web hard.
