What can you do with social networking?
Chances are you’ve heard of Tim Ferris and his mega best seller, The 4 Hour Work Week. My copy looks like a college text book, with highlighted paragraphs and stick tabs throughout the book.
On his blog, he’s trying a new experiment. It’s more like an ethical bribe.
In order to raise money for literacy and library programs throughout the United States (and increasingly around the world) he will donate $1 for every person that follows him on Twitter, and an anonymous donor will follow up with a $2 donation. (@tferriss)
Pretty incredible goals. So far he’s gained over 4,000 followers. His goal is to reach 50,000 new followers.
- It’s great for literacy – what a great way of raising awareness and money for something that impacts our lives.
- And it’s also a great example of using a noble cause for dual purposes.
What could you do with 75,000 people following you?
