Lost in Social Media? Mashable Can Help

Boot Camp feature for Friday, August 21, 2009

Lost in the new world of social media? Mashable can help. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. If you have some catching up to do...when it comes to knowing what's up with Twitter or Facebook and the like...a site called Mashable.com can help...

"We're a kind of a combination between news and resources."

Mashable chief operating officer Adam Hirsch. The site has attracted millions of people and this summer it has been using that popularity for the benefit four charitable groups...in what it calls the Summer of Social Good campaign...

"As of June first we launched our first major initiative that we were hosting directly and every week we're doing something new and unique and really seeing how different communities respond."
