Crowdsourcing and Online Social Structures

According to what our NGO needs I believe that what was approached on Theme 1 - Crowdsourcing and Online Social Structures is a way to solve the unmet need of the Tiny Houses Enthusiasts. That’s basically part of what my group is purposing on the final solution.

Crowdsourcing is the practice of obtaining needed services, ideas, or content by soliciting contributions from a large group of people and especially from the online community rather than from traditional employees or suppliers. So by using the right online social structures, crowdsourcing can be really efficient in order that technology has fundamentally changed what means connections. And it goes that people working together with same cause and interests can reach followers to raise the project. Because you are able to talk to people from different zones and you can have access to this huge world of diversity. Which means our group focused on tasks working to learn the community needs and trying to be practical using the networks that is the door to make the world know about their purposes.

So I think a simpler and also effective solution for our NGO would be using the online social structures (because there’s a world of these networks in the web) to help to build the people community, make people aware and fundraising. Because of the network environment enable people to:

  • Express their identity by posting things about their community
  • Participate of networks communities in all over the world and get to know people
  • Discover and appropriate useful technologies that can connect them to other communities

Networks are for everyone and are really easy to learn to use and manage. But it requires dedication.
