One of the founders of Facebook built a new online community called Jumo, used to connect people with nonprofits and charities. Brilliant! After it’s release in a few days, I see it as being a great, FREE way for nonprofits and charity organizations to promote their cause to a mass amount of people and getting their name out into the social media atmosphere (not like Facebook where there are millions of other things to look at).
Jumo will focus specifically on these organizations and also allow them to make connections to the already MASSIVE amount of people on Facebook.
However, is there such a thing as social media burnout?
I know that Facebook creeping can last for hours, but then the Twitter has to be updated, then the blog….now Jumo? Other social networking sites have been created, such as Foursquare, and more like this are being created to suit specific groups. But soon I feel like they might get lost in the cluttered pile of tweets, likes, tags, posts, comments, photos….the list goes on.
Will social media burnout happen? I think this idea of Jumo is clever, especially since these organizations are low on money and high on ideas. We just have to think of these possible problems before it’s too late.
