This isn't North Carolina specific, but I wanted to share a quick note about a new tool that may be of interest to those working with advocacy organizations or political campaigns.
My online outreach firm has been working with a brand new web platform called NationBuilder. It is innovative and provides brilliant integration of social media, with an intuitive interface, both for supporters and for administrators.
NationBuilder has a lot of great features straight out of the box, which we've been able to further customize as well. If you want to see it in action, visit Action NC. (You should visit them anyway - they are a good group).
It is ideal for campaigns - both political and advocacy oriented. The platform will be an asset to organizations able to put it to good use. We've written a review here.
