- Social media can be used to organize and maintain a movement both online and offline.
- A clear agenda is needed from the get-go.
- Leadership from the top down is a must.
- The Occupy Movement connected people from all walks of life.
I know these may seem overly broad. But when you divulge deeper into them there are some really great and valuable lessons to be learned from it.
I work as a Community Maneger at startup which does community tools for nonprofits, and was/am disappointed at what happened in the end. Hopefully, we can all learn from the experiences from the original Occupy Movement, and build a better and stronger community through the first experience.
I wrote a more in depth article talking about the lessons learned, and what to take from each one.
