Five ways to build (social) networks that work
Some people who read this blog are involved in grassroots movements, and often need to form proactive networks to get stuff done. (I suspect a few politicians might also benefit from the following advice.)
- Listen to and consult the crowds
- Help people to connect
- Bridge differences between extreme views
- Help people help each other. directly
- Give enough direction for individuals to take effective and coordinated action.
Hope it helps.
