The Association Social Technology (AST) executive summary is now available for download, and we even have a memorable URL for it at www.socialtechsurveysummary.org. I feel very fortunate to have led this project and to have been a co-author of the executive summary.
Here's some additional analysis of the AST data you won't find in the report:
- Our analysis reveals 501(c)(6) organizations are less likely to be involved in social media than 501(c)(3) organizations. This could be due to a sampling bias.
- While "increasing engagement" (presumably mass engagement) is the primary motive of association deployment of social media, with so many volunteers involved in the the execution of association social media initiatives, association executives should be cognizant that volunteer assistance with the implementation of social technologies is a strategic opportunity to engage volunteers at a deeper level.
