Yesterday Alyssa and I were able to attend the Open Media Foundation's (OMF) annual community breakfast. Thanks very much to The Denver Foundation for inviting us!

Community Shares is a big believer in engaging web content. We believe that our website should be a vibrant and vital part of our overall communications and needs to attract new and returning visitors rather than serving as a static placeholder which is rarely used or visited.

Content is everything when you're building an online presence and OMF can help you build it easily and cheaply.

Tony Shawcross, Executive Director of OMF said in his speech that the top 10 websites in the world are all driven by the people who visit them. OMF's mission is to put the power of media and technology into the hands of the community. They encourage others to think of media as any and all content that reaches an audience. I think that this is a very accessible and inclusive definition and if more nonprofits take this definition and run with it we'll be able to highlight the areas of our society that the mainstream media fails to report on.

If you're looking to take the next step in your social media and general online presence as an organization, please consider utilizing the services of OMF. They can help you be strategic and provide the tools to help you move in a new direction.
