Social (Good) Networking

Online communities allowing consumers to connect through social causes
Implications - Social networks like Facebook and Twitter are great when all you are looking for is general virtual interaction, but what about the consumer who wants to do good while she socializes online? For this consumer, there are a number of cause-based social networks popping up that promote interaction through users' shared desire to contribute to a social cause. Bringing socially conscientious people together, these do-good networks are the next level of online activism, offering engaging and interactive channels in which consumers can participate to lend a helping hand.
