How Have You Changed Your World With Social Media?

Changing the World

I would be excited for the Mom 2.0 Summit under any circumstances, but in light of having survived three blizzards this winter already, I am more than ready to jump on that plane for Houston later this week for that great conference!

This year, I’m excited to be speaking on a panel called The Macro Impact of Social Media Engagement:

From changing political policy to our family dinnertime rituals, we have the means and the power to act and create habits that can become viral and produce real change. Our society is an impressive network of cyber-villages that connects parents, families, friends and businesses in ways never before possible. Participants will leave with an actionable takeaway, and an entirely new perspective on the way we interact and contribute at home and online. Being mindful about our contributions will dramatically impact our children and generations beyond.

The panel will be moderated by JJ Lassberg and my fellow panelists are Julie Pippert (one of my MOMocrats peeps!) and Loralee Choate, who I was honored to sit next to last year at the BlogHer meet-up with Valerie Jarrett when Loralee was invited to the White House! (No, I didn’t get invited, but I did get to say I was sitting next to the one who got invited!)

So here’s my question – What have you done to try to create change in your corner of the social media world? Have you been a part of something that’s gone “viral” and, if so, what did you learn?  I would love any thoughts or comments you might have on that as I think about trying to come up with some coherent thoughts for our panel!  And, of course, I will give anyone credit at the panel for stories you share!

And of course, I can’t wait to see this photo exhibit in conjunction with Mom 2.0!

    I’m signed up for a staff development session (teacher training) next week on social media sites for teachers. I’m looking forward to it on so many levels: teacher, mom, blogger.
    Enjoy your conference!
