Tips for Tapping into the ActMo! Network
Start by getting familiar with your 'My Page' area. You have a customizable page so take some time to make it the way that best suits your style. Please use your My Page comment wall for your thoughts and opinions and random conversations to help keep the main site uncluttered. Here's a link to Cromag's My Page
Video Section: The place to upload or embed important videos and even add lots of commentary. Have a look at this example.
Forum Section: The place to start discussion topics where you would like people to join in a conversation. A great place to debate issues or ask for ideas or opinions on subjects. As we get more traffic, this should be the most interesting area.
Invite friends, organize groups and debate issues. Add new photos
Group Section : The place to form private groups with members for planning, discussing, updating or sharing information.
Blog Section: The place for objective, thought provoking articles, that hopefully educate or encourage comments. Links are always good to help support claims and minimize conjecture. Videos that are not supported by NING's video upload system in our video section can easily be embeded in the blog section.
Events Section : The place to let people know of upcoming events or demonstrations, and even to have people RSVP.
* Instantly add photos from your phone by sending them directly to Cromag468@activism101.ning.com(for photos only)
